So I just recently taught myself to crochet and decided that since all my husband's coworkers were having babies it would be fun to do crochet baby gifts. I found ravelry.com and starting picking out patterns. So I started doing a blanket in the nursery colors of the closest expecting mother.
(I can't post pictures yet but here is the link )
While I was shopping for yarn for the blanket (paint swatches in hand) I found baby camo that perfectly matched (and was appropriate since Expecting Mom and Dad are both army). So I of course had to snatch it up and ended up making this guy which probably belongs in the amigurumi category but I thought since most of this post is crochet it'd be ok:
and his mom (not pictured but I just altered the pattern to make it bigger after my husband decided the first one just wasn't big enough)
Then I went and got a gift bag and realized that it was WAY too big and needed to be filled up! So I used some of the leftovers to make these:
The booties ended up coming out a little funky but overall I'm happy with how everything came out. I had a lot of fun doing this and finally had to make my husband get the bag out of my house so I would stop making things for the baby. He instantly commissioned his own goodies too.
Let me know what you think and Thanks for Looking!!!!
