18 Etsy Craft-Tastrophes for BabyCasey Mullins
Etsy can be a magical place of creativity and inspiration that can suck your Paypal account dry with the marvelous textures, talent and handmade items available for purchase. Vivi’s entire nursery was inspired by Etsy and I constantly find new and amazing things for everyone in my life in the farthest corners of the online handmade market.
While talent abounds on Etsy, taste is sometimes…negotiable. But that’s the beauty right? Where else are you going to find a hand knit placenta or a fused glass uterus pendant? The truth is these sellers are selling it because some buyer is buying it. What follows are 18 unique and sometimes ridiculous finds on etsy for your baby.
Heart Cherry Wood Baby Rattle 1 of 18I mean, you see it right? The most inappropriate item to have "wood" in the title.

Fruffly Baby Leg Warmers 2 of 18Now your baby can have Big Bird legs!

Rainbow Leg Warmers 3 of 18So there's nothing wrong with the legwarmers, but the photo creeps me out to the extent that I don't want these leg warmers on my kid.

Soft Tree Rattle 4 of 18You saw Beetlejuice (right?) where the chair attacks the mom and makes her sing Day-O?

Stuffed Eyeball Rattle 5 of 18Nothing says "Love you baby!" like a jingly knit eyeball with the optic nerve still attached!

Psalm Onesie 6 of 18I'm all about Creationism, but not blatant Bible Onesie-ism.

Unicorn Sock Baby Doll 7 of 18I mean, it's cute. But, lovable? I don't know...those eyes...I think they can see my soul.

Mini Mario Mustache Pacifier 9 of 18I can't not smile at this, but the baby looks like he's been betrayed, no?

Baby Bling Pacifier 12 of 18Save your $15, buy a regular pacifier and give your baby some Polly Pocket shoes to swallow instead of super glued rhinestones.

Peacock Costume 13 of 18Babies drool SO MUCH. Covering them in $65 worth of feathers just seems futile.

Peanut the Pug Stuffy. 14 of 18Mom? The baby's toy...thing...is staring at me again.

Tigger Diaper Wreath 15 of 18From the listing — "Baby poo, ewww! Why not give Baby Pooh!" And here I thought $44 worth of denim diapers couldn't be sillier.

Sports Crib Sheet 16 of 18With Peyton Manning out for the season I'll bet she's getting a lot of orders out of Indy.

Baby Top Hat 17 of 18If I were to put this on my baby it would be impossible not to call her Lady Berkshire Potty Pants in a cockney accent and subject her to tiny performances of the Can-Can.

Lace Pettiromper with Flower 18 of 18I don't like the pettiromper craze. I also don't like the enormous flowers on babies craze. Guess how I feel about this culmination of fruffles and flowers?
