Make Your Own Baby Stuff
So you want to make your own baby stuff? Creating and crafting your little one's world can bring such a satisfaction and a great outlet for creativity. From sewing, crochet, and knitting, to whipping up your own batches of homemade baby food - you'll gain piece of mind and save a little money too.
From before the time my first child was even born I knew I would spend my free time making all sorts of baby stuff and gear. Sewing and creativity is something that had been passed down to me from my mother, to her from my grandmother and so on. It just seemed like second nature!
But then I began noticing the price tags on some of the cutest baby clothes and kept thinking how easy it would be to just make it myself! And it didn't stop there. I started to pay attention to the labels on the backs of baby food jars and noticed ingredients that I just didn't want to feed my baby.
Research brought me to the conclusion that most foods and products contained a laundry list of things I didn't want to feed my baby or even to touch my baby's skin.
Before I knew it I was making my own baby stuff everything! And along came baby number #2 and the research went on and on.
I used cloth diapers, made my own baby wipes and somewhere along the way became this super organic earthy nature momma! And I love it because my kids are all the healthier for it!
Now I want to share it all with you! Here you will find patterns and recipes, baby craft and nursery ideas. Ideas to save money, and do it all while keeping it all natural and organic. We'll upcycle and re-use and find ways to make natural and healthy baby stuff while also keeping the carbon footprint low.
I absolutely love the a simple and easy to make top that can be transitioned form spring into summer! The baby pinefore tops are easy to make, and you can use them all the way from spring into fall. Make it into a cute baby dress and then, as your baby grows lossen the elastic to make it into a top! Waer with long sleeve onesies or sweaters in the cooler weather, or with simple bloomers or baby shorts in summer! LOVE!
You can mix and match fabrics, upcycle old clothes to new and interesting pieces. Add ruffles or lace to a boring piece of clothing, or even hand dye fabric to match your favorite colors.
You can hand draw pictures or graphics, hand stencil or add an iron on featuring anything you want!
You can make your own baby slings, ergo and other carriers for a fraction of the price of store bought. Sew your own diaper bags. You can even make your own lotions, balms, and cleaning products.
Every little bit helps in not only saving precious dollars from your everyday budget.
Scientific testing and studies are showing that many common ingredients in health and beauty products are known carcinogens and cancer causing agents. And you skin will soak these up faster than you would believe.
The best way to ensure that your baby does not come into contact with these chemicals and toxins, is to know what is in your products. Keep them out of your baby's environment. It is much easier than you think to make your own products. You can make everything from lotions to household cleaning products and it is not difficult or terrible time consuming. I want to show you how!
I think it may be a common misconception that making baby food has to take up a lot of time, but if you plan ahead you can make food that is so much healthier, tastes better, and is more inexpensive than jarred food.
