Baby Layette

Crocheted, Knitted and Precious

Babies are one of our most treasured events - whether it's the first, or the final one, they all deserve some handmade finery for their initial exposure to the world.

Baby Layette - tiny booties

Tiny hats and bonnets, little socks and booties, blankets made of softest yarns, wee outfits with sweaters, matching pants - all made by loving hands are common baby shower gifts. 

Even those of us that aren't all that crafty can make something to show our love to a brand new baby.

If you're just beginning your knitting and crocheting journey, baby layette gifts are some of the easiest things to make - especially as they're so small, they're easy projects to get completed.

Grandmothers, aunts, sisters and even nieces like to make things for a new baby to wear. 

There are lots of projects that are simple to make, but they can be made distinctive by the use of different textures in the way of stitches or yarns, so they'll be uniquely yours.
