Pregnancy + Etsy = Newborn Knit Obsession

bunny

This all started on an afternoon I was feeling particularly green. As in nauseous and tired.

I thought I would get on Etsy and take a look at knitted caps for newborns as a way of reminding myself of all the good things to come. I'm now totally and completely obsessed... as if you're surprised.

This little bunny hat (complete with bows) comes from After The Bump where you can even pick your own colors!

Do you think it would be odd if I only dressed my baby in photography props?

It's so soft and delicious and I love the buttons on the ears. Created by Kinley Ash.

Cocoon

Kathy Nielsen Designs has this adorable sweet pea cocoon. I just love the cocoons!

Oh.My.God. There are no words.

All Things Belle has a number of cocoons I also love.

Who doesn't need a monkey hat from The Preppy Peach Boutique?

This boutique has knits for newborns all the way to adults!

Also from The Preppy Peach Boutique. No I am not having twins.... but I do have friends with babies coming along :)

I can't handle the cute. Fear for my child and all the ridiculous things I plan to do to the poor thing.

  1. SO cute! I love the monkey hat, and just might have to invest in a cocoon for some picture opportunities. :)

  2. Just found your blog from LeAnna's. Such a cool story you have! God is good and I am so glad you are experiencing the blessing of a child inside of you. I am pregnant with my first, he is due June 13th, and I have loved every step of it. So fun to read about your journey. And these knits on etsy are so cute! I think I may be obsessed now and might need to invest in one or ten for baby boy's newborn shots :)

  4. Oh my word honey... you just buy every single one! And then post your baby and take a million photos to remember his/her cuteness with!!

    I'm loving this journey! :)

  6. Restraint, my dear. :) It's so easy to go overboard with all those sweet stuff that you see. But then, what the heck, it's your first. You're most certainly entitled. :)

    You might have to sign up to see the Lion Brand ones (the first two). And this is just a sample!! There's this one author (Candi Jensen) that makes patterns that would just make you fall over with the cute.

  9. I wonder how many "takes" the photographer has to do simply because Baby wakes up before he/she can photograph. *smile*

    So cute!

  15. I don't blame you! How cute are they?!! And I can't wait to see your little one all dressed up!

  16. TOO. STINKIN. CUTE! I'm due May 28, and thanks to you, am off to spend some moolah! Enjoy your pregnancy!

  17. Those are adorable. The hard part is that they grow so fast that once they are in it for a month, time to buy more.

    I love you way of thinking though...remind yourself that the nausea is for a very GOOD reason!

  18. Dawn,

    These are so cute, so which ones did you order???

    Where were these when I was pregnant, I would have ordered quite a few.

  19. I'm already planning out what I'm going to make for your babe. Thanks for the ideas :) -Holly

  20. Oh, the cuteness! I can't stand it! It also makes me want to learn to knit, which is surprising since I've always been intimidated by the two-needle thing. Thanks for sharing these cuties!! -Tammy

  21. The sad part is this makes you also somehow want to become a carnivore and nibble your cute baby up! I mean that in a good way, but you'll know what I mean when you see those bubble baby thighs...which are irresistable and the heavenly smell of a baby is intoxicating.

    Hang in there, you'll feel better soon. And yes dressing them is the best part until they get old enough to decide their own wardrobe choices, Lord help me we need the fashion police for princess tennis shoes with dresses!

    If you get a chance pop over and see my post from the kids earlier in the week, they shoved balls under their shirts to imitate Momma's pregnant tummy, it will put a smile on your face!

  22. My favorite one is the pea one. So cute.

  23. OMG, I think my brain just exploded from cuteness overload. If you dressed up your baby in only photography props I would love you forever. Adorable!!

  24. Cute stuff! Don't you just want it ALL! I want to buy it and I don't even have newborns anymore! Sheesh. Then there's all the cute toddler stuff. I might as well just cash in my (measly) 401K and go shopping.

  25. Oh my God the hats! They're adorable.

    I should warn you though... newborn fingers tend to snag in knits. ow!

  26. I love those hats, especially the monkey one. I'm not having a baby anytime soon but I think I need to order that one. So freaking cute. I'm weak from the cuteness too. :-)
