Roundup: Baby DIYs you can do BEFORE you find out the gender

I don’t know about you but, for me I wanted to start making and buying things for Little C (or Little Lamb as he was called then) as SOON as I found out I was pregnant. I was so excited! A lot of the DIYs running amok on the internet are for clothes but, of course I didn’t know yet if I needed to make headbows (Little baby girls don’t have hair to put bows in, so they’re headbows, not hair bows – Mr B) or bowties (team bowtie!), so, instead I have made a list of DIYs you can make before you know lad or lass and before you even choose nursery colors! So, without further ado:

Old McDonald Puppets

Make one or make all or make one a month to measure your pregnancy!

Taggie Bean Bag

I actually made one of these for my nephew before he was born and he LOVES it. I filled mine with rice instead of beans, because that’s what we had on hand.

Baby Countdown

This one is more for the parents but, it is oh so cute!DIY Countdown to Baby Blocks

Happy Stacker

Instead of hard plastic and wood you can make a stacker out of fabric!Happy stacker

Foam Blocks

Once again, softer than wooden or plastic blocks and won’t freak out the dog or hurt me when Little C flings them across the room.DSC_0002

Beach Ball

If you can’t sense a pattern, I like things that babies can throw without worrying about it hurting. Gotta work up those throwing muscles!

Nessie Stuffed Animal

Just about any stuffed animal would work on this list but, I absolutely loved Nessie and how she is big enough to ride when baby gets bigger!

 

What DIYs are you making for your baby? I’m working on a green romper, then a stuffed spaceship after that! Happy crafting,

xoxo,
