Friday Favorites–Babies

I think the further you get from your own kids’ baby years, the cuter other peoples’ babies get.  I can’t walk by anyone under about three years old without at least an “Awww"!” in my head.  My husband is stopped dead in his tracks by the ones who are either too small to walk or just starting to learn.  We lean over and whisper and subtly (I hope!) point them out.  We have friends who are expecting on Monday, and we’re trying to figure out the appropriate waiting period before we baby-stalk.

Crazy Little Projects used three different tutorials to make this Baby Girl Peasant Dress Ensemble, and she has links to each of them.  What I really love about this is the fact that the dress and burp cloth coordinate!  I never thought to do that, but you can bet I will now.


These Sweet Sweater Slippers from Collecting the Moments are much easier than they look.  I kinda love the little police car embellishment.


Fancy Frugal Life shares her version of this Birth Announcement Onesie.  This is such a cute idea for an announcement photo.

My daughter was only two when my son came along, so I’m not sure she completely understood what was happening, but for an older brother or sister this Big Sibling Kit from Ducks in a Row would be a great gift.


Pacifier clips aren’t new, but I don’t remember them being as cute as these from How About Orange.


My very favorite baby-related item, always, is shoes.  The tinier the better.  These Cowboy Boots from OrangeShooze on Ravelry are beyond words.


This Stroller Bag from Lemonade and Lollypops is just smart.

While you’re stepping up the pretty on your stroller, why not make the canopy to match?  This tutorial from Honey & Fitz is for a specific brand, but could be adapted for others.


Before you know it, it will be cold enough for these adorable Baby Mittens from Speckled Owl Studio.

Come back on Monday to see what I made for the new little bundle that’s on her way!
