Milk Bottle Cover - Knitting Project

Knitted Milk Bottle Cover, one more addition to our newborn baby's collection made by my Mum. When we saw the pattern for this project in Baby & Knits Book, we couldn't resist making one. It is simple yet elegant looking pattern. I love the edging pattern.
It will go well with the baby change bag too!! Post coming soon..

Happy Crafting !!


Baby Quilt

Dear Readers,

I made this baby quilt from IKEA Textiles I purchased sometime ago. I made this quilt for our new baby who will join us soon.

Materials Used:
  • 1m length Printed Cotton Fabric
  • Cotton Thread
  • Quilting Needle
  • Polyfill

I loved the Hummingbird Design on this fabric and decided to place it in the centre of the quilt and quilted straigth lines around it to get the fluffiness.
  • The fabric was folded in half and stitched on two sides from the wrong side.
  • Turn the fabric inside out and fill with polyfill or any quilt batting you life.
  • Blanket stitch to close the ends.
  • I quilted small stitches in straight rows at equal distances and ensured the hummingbird is not stitched over.
Its a very quick one day project for a newborn.

Newborn Baby Crochet Set

 Hello Readers,

The great response received for the baby turban inspired me to make a complete set for our new member. So I was back to my pinterest Crochet board to find more patterns.
I love this baby cardigan pattern from  Yarny Days Blog as I wanted to learn the knack of making a continuous one piece sweater. The pattern was easy to follow, but I had to amend it as  I was using very light weight yarn and also wanted ribbed pattern to match with the turban.
Materials used:
  • Light weight acrylic multi coloured yarn.
  • 3.5mm Crochet Hook
Changes made to the original Pattern:
Started with 48 chains instead of 38.
The circumference of the cardigan measured 28 inches before beginning the pattern
I alternated between front loop and back loop for each row to get the ribbed pattern.
Used same colour yarn for the edging
space out the three buttons to close the cardigan completely
Baby Booties: I wanted to try this Baby Booties pattern for so long. Finally got a perfect reason to make these.
Again I made some changes to the pattern. I used 3.5mm hook for the sole and then 4mm hook for the side and top of the booties.
They seemed to be too small for newborn when I made using only 3.5mm hook as suggested in the pattern.
This was very quick project took me only 10 hours to complete the set. I hope it fits the new born perfectly.
Have you created something from Pinterest recently?

100th Post !!Crochet Turban for newborn baby

Hello Friends!!

Meet our little Sardar Teddy Singh! We are celebrating our 100th Post today!!

 I made this cute turban crochet for our new member who will be arriving soon in to our world. I used the pattern from pinterest pin. 

I just got this idea of adding some pearls where the four ribs are clutched together. Its very quick and easy pattern to follow. It took me only 2.5 hours from start to finish for this project. 

 I used baby yarn of 4ply instead of worsted, but crocheted it bit loose, so it matches the gauge required for the project .

Thank you for all your ongoing support and following...... 

Happy Crocheting


Baby Girl Frock Parchment Pattern

Hello Readers !
Today I am sharing one of my old parchment project. I was newly introduced to parchment world and did this project without any guidance.
I I gifted it to my aunt who had her first baby in Jan 2004. She loved and till date it is proudly displayed at her place her in Pune, India.
Recently I asked aunt to click some photos for my blog. I really appreciate her efforts in sending me these pics (though she's not a computer literate)


Materials Used:
  • Plain white vellum paper
  • Dorso Colours
  • Dorso Oil
  • one point needle
  • Embossing Pen (small and medium size)
  • Card Stock for framing

I enlarged one of Martha Ospina's Baby frock pattern and inked it on Vellum paper. I did not have a diamond shape needle tool , so I used one point needle for the net effect in between. (I did not like the outcome, but was too late). I tried adding dorso effect to the frock, but think its bit overdone at some patches.

I Used dark green colour card stock for background and framed it between two glass sheets which added the grace to the final product.

What are the latest projects you are working on?

Happy Crafting!!
