Category Archives: Baby accessories
Working on these for a friend expecting her first baby, a boy! These stitch up quickly and can be embellished with ribbon or buttons. I’m looking for small football buttons to add…my friend is a huge football fan!
I crocheted a spa cloth but I did not like how the stitch spread open after one wash. So, I’ll use it for smaller baby accessories. I’m going to try their worsted weight which I expect will be more durable for larger items like a baby blanket.
Working with Red Heart Yarn, “Americana” self striping Red White & Blue making newborn baby hats for one of my charity projects. Lois, a member of my Stitch & Bitch collects baby hats for the newborn babies of White Plains Hospital. We often make hats with holiday theme colors. She came up with the brilliant idea to make these inclusivity hats as a “welcome to America” for the newborn babies. Red Heart Yarn can be found at any yarn store & places like Walmart for $2.88 a skein (in NY). One skein makes 3 hats.
I will glady accept yarn donations from anyone in the Westchester County in the NY area.
With all the craziness going on in this world I’m grateful for my hobby of Crocheting/ Knitting …it helps keep my restless hands busy and anxious tendencies in check.
I also use some of the helpful practices given (below).
Working on a few charity projects, these prayer hearts will be sent to women who are grieving the lost of an infant (2nd and 3rd trimester).
This turquoise baby blanket is for friend’s newborn baby boy. I love working with this cheerful color.
Simple practices that help:
Newborn size vs teeny preemie size…
Crocheting using Caron one pound yarn & Bernat for accent stripes.
So much smaller than this newborn baby hat
Making a dozen of these for the preemie hat project of my Stitch & Bitch.
