The Good, The Bad and the Yet-to-Be...

They are finished. I found a pattern a little while ago for some Simple Crossover Baby Booties. I think they are incredibly cute and very easy to put together (although from the photo you can probably see that I need to work on my stitching skills. I'll have to get back to this one and make it look better!)

I don't actually think that they will stay on with the design the way it is, so I am hoping to find some little vintage buttons to add to the outer side of them and make a loop to hold it all together. Otherwise I'll just use whatever buttons I can find.

The other thing I decided to finally stitch together is the Easy Baby Bear Beanie. This one didn't work for me. I wanted it to be a beanie that was just a tad bigger than the starfish beanie, but with the brim rolled down it fits my 2 year old! (Guess he will be the recipient of it). It is WAAAYYY to big! I'm a bit sad really. I don't know that I could be bothered knitting up another one for bubby... the yarn was HORRIBLE. No, really. A total horror story. The acrylic chenille like yarn snags while you knit with it. If you were to drop a stitch you pretty much wouldn't find it till it was far to late to do anything about it (and would have to pull it all undone again).
... I think I may have become a yarn snob.

So, seven weeks to go (give or take) till our little Yet-to-Be arrives, and I still have a bunch of things to do!

Here's what I'm wanting to do:

Burp Cloths (some pretty ones)
Maternity Skirt for me
Fabric toy
Patchwork cushion (for the feeding chair)
Find baskets/boxes for the baby's cupboard 
Knit/crochet a jacket/jumper
And at some point, a quilt/play mat

I realise that I don't have time to do it all. I will have to be selective. Especially as the nesting/cleaning bug is starting to kick in. Wish me speedy creating! :)

So there you go. That is what has been happening in my creative space this week. Hopefully I will get a whole lot more done soon!

Till then...

  1. oh those booties are so totally sweet!

  2. booties to die for miss seaweed, you are so clever. Can't wait to see them on little, soft, squirmy feet!

  3. cute!!!! can't wait to see them on tiny, soft, squirmy baby toes! Post some pics hey?

  4. I love those booties! I have seen the pattern for them, but was also concerned that they wouldn't stay on. Your button and loop idea is a good one. Maybe I will have to give them a go!
