They won’t really explode. Twinge maybe. You can read on though, without the fear of having to call an ambulance.
Okay, so health notes out of the way, I like babies. I don’t have any of my own any more, but I like looking at other people’s. Not in a creepy way, just in a ‘oh my goodness, those chubby wrists! I just want to eat them up!’ way.
(You see, totally non-creepy.)
I don’t actually know many babies in real life at the moment, so I have to get my baby fix online. Normally I just look at my friend Fritha’s baby Mabli:
Because a significant amount of the time I am meant to spend working is looking at pictures of Mabli/cute things for babies, I thought I’d do you a little round up of some of my favourite DIY projects. So, grab your baby knitting patterns, dust off your glue sticks, and let’s get busy…
Gold dipped baby shoes
I’m going straight in here, no messing around, with a pair of gold dipped baby shoes. Guys, come on, baby shoes are already one of the cutest things in the whole world, and now you can DIY gold dip them. You’re welcome.
Knitted duckling slippers
When I was pregnant with Bee, I knitted her a sock. I was so proud of myself, that I never did get round to knitting the second one. (Socks are hard you know!) I did make up for it a little bit last summer, by knitting Belle a whole pair of socks as we drove around Ireland in a motorhome, although I don’t suppose that’s much consolation for Bee.
Why make socks though, when you can make duckling slippers?!
I’m kind of hoping that Bee doesn’t read this, and say ‘to make up for only ever knitting me one sock, you can make me a pair of crochet jellyfish to go over my bed.’ It’s the sort of thing she’d make me do. I’d have to learn to crochet first of course.
Yeah, I know, squirrels are the rats of the sky, (or is that pigeons?), or rats with fluffy tails… Whatever. They are cute, and when they are made of soft felt like this one, there’s definitely no chance of them giving your baby the plague.
