Sweet little baby

Nah, not kittens for a change! Friends of mine are expecting a little boy this winter. I would like to make them a baby something. Something where I can learn a new skill. But something useful. And pretty. Here's what I'm looking at. Crochet bear hat. I'm pretty sure I can make this. Bib backed with terry toweling. If I can find some. Ok mums, is this practical? Or a pretty waste of time? When do babies need bibs? Appliqué suity thing. Maybe a rocket or a dinosaur. A cot quilt. I think I'm leaning towards this project. A good small scale intro to the craft. Except I might need specialist tools. But I think choosing the fabric would be a lot of fun. And it's practical? Sweet dreams little one quilted and embroidered pillowcase. Ah. Except I just found out babies don't use pillows... Righto mums! What do you think would be a special gift? - Toodle Pip!

I vote for the bibs. Although perhaps consider a dome to fasten (my bib fastening of choice). Then Velcro second altho Velcro does stick to other stuff in the wash... Ties are quite annoying to use. Hats are cute but you literally only need one hat....the quilt is gorgeous and we got a lovely handmade quilt for Gus that we used heaps but suspect there is some possibility that it might be abit ambitious and then what say you don't finish it? Singlets are cute too altho in winter yu won't really get to see the pictures as they'll be under five layers of other stuff.

Fastens with a dome. Or button.

I think even though you only need one hat, a good woollen crocheted one will always win! My friend crocheted one for Finn that was so soft and lovely- grey with scarlett edging, and its got natural stretch so we are getting years out of it! good luck, Amanda
