Crafting is in my blood! Just not in my geneology.

Ok, Craftsters!  I need your help.  The wonderful woman who lets me babysit her 8 and 10 year old is due with her third in mid April!  She's going to be a beautiful little girl!  So as a craftster, I'm very excited about the new challenge of baby clothes.  What are some basic essentials that an April baby will need?  Obviously not heavy clothes(We live in central Illinois), but seeing as I'm not a mom, I really don't know what babies need clothes-wise, besides diapers and something to cover them.

    Oh, I also have a limited budget, so free pattern links would be terrific!

Thanks so much!

Hey, that's my post!!  lol

Anyways, as far as weather appropriate clothing, think of things you would wear during that time of year  ((for your area))  and then go smaller.... WAAaaaayy smaller!!

I am interested in personal swaps!
