My Projects: Baby Fun!

I've been on a baby item kick lately. Probably due to the fact that 3 of my cousins and 2 of my friends are having babies within the next few months! Also, I love simple projects that are easy to personalize and are fast to make. These hats and bibs definitely fit in that category :-)

Believe it or not, all three of these hats came from the same pattern! The pattern is the Best Baby Cloche from Aesthetic Nest. I used Peaches and Cream 100% cotton yarn. All of these hats are size 0-3 months. On the first hat, I followed the pattern exactly, only omitting the flower and threading the ribbon through the eyelet edge. On the second hat, I followed the pattern exactly. On the last hat, I followed the pattern exactly up to Round 11. On rounds 12 and 13, I just hdc in each stitch around. These hats were SUPER easy to make and took an hour to an hour and a half to make.

I made these bibs using this pattern from the Bernat website. I also used Peaches and Cream 100% cotton yarn for both of these. On the first one, I used a denim blue yarn and a yellow yarn. I changed colors every two rows. On the second bib, I used the same multicolored yarn as with the multicolored baby hat. The third bib is one of my favorites! The eyes of the duckie are very simple. I ch 2 and then did 6 sc in the second chain from the hook, join with a sl st to the first st. Join white yarn, 2 sc in each sc around, 12 sc. Fasten off leaving a long enough tail for sewing the eyes in place. On the bill I used a burnt orange color from Red Heart. I just made the pattern up for the bill, but I don't remember off the top of my head how I did it! On the last bib I used a denim blue yarn and used the surface slip stitch to stitch to free hand the "R" on the front. All of the buttons came from my Moma's or from my button stash. I believe some of them are vintage but I'm not sure.
