For a long time, I felt nervous whenever I got client inquiries about newborn or baby photography. But after gaining some experience over the years, I realized there's no need to be intimidated. Creative baby photography doesn't require specific props, lights or instructions. It requires heart, soul, patience, time and — most of all — imagination.
We've all been there: you have a baby shower to attend, and need to whip up a handmade gift, stat. Never fear — these adorable baby socks are quick, cute, and the parents-to-be will love them. The best part? They don't take much yarn. In fact, you probably have enough sock yarn leftover from the last pair you knit yourself!
Whether it's your very first quilt project or one of many in the works, making a baby quilt is tough to beat in the fun department. They're small (which equals fast!) and, of course, are irresistibly cute. Get ready for all the oohs and ahhhs you'll hear at the baby shower!
Fact: babies can never have enough booties: And since those little wiggly toes grow so fast, you're going to want to make a bunch. Lucky for you this pattern is super simple and super fast. So simple, in fact, that the pattern stays the same, regardless of which size you're making: just switch up your yarn and hook to whip up different sizes.
Baby hats are a quick and easy knit and make an excellent gift for a new little person in your life (or a donation to your local NICU). And don’t get us started on the cuteness factor, which is Off. The. Hook.
It's a boy! It's a girl! It's a cake pop! Gender-reveal baby showers are about to get even more fun. The white candy coating on these retro-style cake pops keeps the big secret until everyone's ready to take a bite.
The smash cake. This may very well be your baby's first real taste of sugary sweetness and your first go at kid-party planning. Heck, it might even be your first venture into cake decorating. Wherever you stand, welcome to the sweet side where we always have cake. Lots and lots of cake.
Having a solid baby hat is clutch: you can turn to it again and again, knowing you'll always have something adorable to bring to the baby shower. Just think of this tutorial as a recipe — add in whatever yarn you want and crochet at whichever gauge makes you happy. There's always room to adapt, get creative and make the hat entirely your own.
