And now lots of people I love are about to have babies.
So I’m going to share some of my favorite baby things that you can make as little projects. They are quick and easy and cute and useful. All good things!
The first one I’m going to share happened by accident. As most of you know I was on bed rest for quite a while. I needed my hands to be busy, but really when it comes down to it I really didn’t finish making almost anything. (unless you count two babies.) So I had lots of partial projects. I ended up having several little crocheted squares that were floating around and somewhere along the way I threw them in the bath with the babies and ended up loving them!
Here's an action shot for you:
They are only about 3 inch squares, so they are teeny tiny and cute! The babies like ‘em and they scrub great! Did your grandma ever make you those crocheted dish cloths? Well mine did, and they scrubbed like the dickens. I loved those things, (I sense another project coming on…) and these little cuties are along the same lines. They are tiny for tiny body parts, but you put a little shampoo on there and it is great for their scalp, too.
Here's a little game we play:
First you put it on her head. Then you see what happens.
Then you put it on her head again and again.
This is a great take-along project. I like to have something to do in carpool lines and waiting rooms and usually have something like this in my bag. You can get these done super fast and they’re great for scrap yarn, too.
(If you don’t have any babies to bathe, you could always make some for yourself—they make great little face cleansing cloths, too.)
You crochet-ers out there, just go and do. But for those of you who like a good recipe, I have taken the liberty to write it down for ya. (if you google “learn to crochet,” you’ll find tons of tutorials, both illustrated and video.)

I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
