Baby Fever - Mommy + Daddy = Baby

I just love this idea posted for Valentine's Day over at Whorange and I think it would make adorable baby room decor. Using handprints or thumbprints and a long rectangular frame or four separate frames to hold each print (plus the + sign). Image found here.

Baby Fever - Baby Room Decor Yarn Wrapped Letters

I just love these yarn wrapped letters from a wedding over at Green Wedding Shoes

I need to get hubs started on the letters. If I ask him now, he might get it done by our (not-yet-conceived) child's fifth birthday.

Baby Fever - Toy Travel Blanket from Merriment Design

I've posted on this before, and I still can't express how much I adore this idea. I still have yet to cross it off my to do list, but this baby phase thing might propel me in to it!!

Found at the Merriment Design blog.

Baby Fever - Name Blocks

I made these to go along with the fabric toy rings. I just love the idea of personalized gifts!

I used the flannel fabrics from JoAnn's and felt for the letters.

Baby Fever - Mommy Thumb Awareness

So some folks that haven't been effected by this may think it's a bit silly, but I certainly don't. Especially for crafters that use their hands a lot, and working moms with Blackberrys (I know, we're all addicted to those things).

Check out an article on mommy thumb and remember to try and limit repetitive motions and stretch/warm-up often!

Happy crafting mommies!

Baby Fever - Diaper Pouch & Change Pad

Anna over at Noodlehead is such a genius. She posted a diaper pouch tutorial a while back that begs to be followed. Here is my version.

I ended up using belts for the cotton webbing as it was one I never wore anymore, and it matched. I also thought a changing pad in coordinating fabric might be a nice addition to this gift. Check it out.

I think I'll be making a few more of these sets for my mommy-to-be friends and family!
