Getting Creative with Crochet Baby Gifts

This blog is a bit of a plea for help.  As I have previously mentioned, I am doing a lot of crocheting right now.  In addition to being surrounded by oodles of great patterns here at Interweave, recently family circumstances have serendipitously given me even more reasons to keep my hooks at warp speed. 

My brother is getting married, and so I have started a keepsake bag for my future sister-in-law to use for her odds and ends during the wedding ceremony, and I have a new nephew on the way in the next few weeks.  For this gift, I’d usually just whip up some cute booties and be done with it.  I’m at that age where there are new babies from friends and siblings constantly, and so I have plenty of go-to cute and quick patterns.  However, when the bundle of joy is within my own family, having my mother and grandmother churning out blankets, hats, and booties at the speed of light has caused me to have to get creative with what I will make for the new wee one.
In fact it was just yesterday morning that I sent my mom the Eight Free Hat Patterns e-Book, and by this morning, she had emailed me a picture of three hats she had already finished!  What’s a girl to do?


My  Mom's Hats

That’s where you all come in.  Now, admittedly, I’ve got a bit of a competitive streak. As such, I’ve decided that I’m gonna get crafty with this business and design something myself.  What would you want to get as a new mama? As a new mom, what did you get that you never had enough of? Some bibs, perhaps?  Maybe a stuffed animal?  This is my call for help! And once my project is chosen and complete, I promise a pattern and copious pictures of both the crochet and the adorable baby, Oscar. Until then, have a happy crochet-filled weekend!
