So now that I’m home and have tons of time on my hands until Baby Smith makes his/her arrival, I thought it would be cool to work on 9 handmade baby projects for the 9 months of pregnancy. Consider it 9 unique gifts to Baby Smith from Mama Smith. To name a few ideas… baby sweaters (delicate homespun cardigans in browns and naturals), vintage-styled quilts, whimsical clothes, organic blankets made on a hand loom, colorful bibs, stuffed animals from my imagination, and peculiar cloth shoes.
A part of me does not want our children to know that clothing stores and toy stores exist. That way, they have to wear and play with what I make them. It makes life easier because there are less options to choose from. I think it also enables kids to think for themselves and design and create at an earlier age because they end up making their own toy creations and inventions. Not to mention that it also makes life more interesting. I’ve always wanted to churn my own butter…maybe someday I will. : )
