10 Tutorials for Things to Make For Babies for Christmas Mega Post

I have Christmas crafting on the brain.  I don't really mean making ornaments, but making all of the gifts.  I try to give at least 1 handmade gift to each person on my list.  I find that even among my friends, the handmade items are more treasured than just things that I pick up. 

This mega roundup is dedicated to things for baby.  I will be doing a few roundups each week for different groups of people.  The next one will be a toddler/preschool roundup.


Free Baby Booties Pattern & Tutorial





from Just Tutorials









Personally, I like to make my burp cloths from scratch, but this tutorial is very nice.  It also occurred to me that because she uses receiving blankets, you could actually make the burp cloths to match the registry items by using receiving blankets from the registry.
