If your nesting instincts are starting to get the best of you and/or you’re itching to start some DIY baby projects — whether it’s baby clothes, crib bedding, or even baby shower decorations — Babble is about to make you really, really happy.
They recently took on the overwhelming assignment of curating the Top 50 Craft Blogs of 2012 — which is no easy feat, given the sheer amount of crafty bloggers out there.
Babble also narrowed down their comprehensive list into Top 10 categories, and here are their picks for the 10 Best Craft Blogs for Parents:
Prudent Baby 1 of 10Whether you want to make clothes, bedding, nursery decor — you name it — you'll find killer tutorials from these two crafting mavens. Prudent Baby is one of the most popular craft blogs for a very good reason (even snagging Babble's coveted #1 Best Overall spot).
