Crochet Gifts for Every Occasion: Baby

If you are friend or family, sooner or later you are bound to receive a crochet gift. I can make about anything in crochet, but what I love to do is baby items. Babies look adorable in crochet hats, booties, and blankets. Sure I can go through registries and buy something that won’t take as much time, but one thing I will tell you, If I make time to do something for you, you are indeed special 🙂

This is my recent baby gift for a friend’s baby. I saw that in their registry they had asked for leg warmers, so what do I do? I crochet some leg warmers… and a few other things. Here is what this beautiful baby received from me.

I don’t remember how I made the leg warmers. That happens to me a lot. I pick up a hook and some yarn and say “I think I’ll crochet this today,” and it all magically appears.

And I kept going. These leg warmers needed a matching headband, and voila!

I also ordered a pack of rattles a while ago to use on all of my amigurumi and I tested them out putting one inside this beautiful little owl. The rattle is a perfect size and it’s loud enough to be stuffed inside amigurumi. I can’t wait to make more.

To top it off I added the cutest beanie ever that supports and encourages breast feeding. The pattern for this is pretty simple, like any ordinary beanie but with a few rows up before increasing.

One of the items that was not crochet but indeed handmade is the blanket with ribbon tags. Babies love tags and this can be used as a burp or quick wipe cloth.

Handmade gifts are always the best and I love the face of appreciation and happiness when they receive them.
