    Seriously, I want a baby now…or another niece/nephew…these are adorable! You had me at “long sleeved bib”, but they kept getting cuter.

  2. Mama Wrench says:

    Ugh, can we please STOP with the click-through lists? It’s a pain in the butt. No one likes them. At least have a “View all on one screen” option for those of us not using dial-up from the early 90s.

  3. Ingrid says:

    The car seat cover is super cute, but voids any warranty the car seat comes with because it isn’t safe to use anything other than what the manufacturer sends with it. Cuteness is in no way a reason to sacrifice safety.

    And I agree with the click through lists, they are difficult to navigate. I would like a thumnail list on one page much better

  4. Nicole says:

    A couple of those projects are unsafe and should be removed from this list. The car seat cover as Ingrid discussed is not safe because you shouldn’t use anything other than what the manufacturer gives you. Car seat covers are made with the right amount of padding, fabric thickness and flammability. If you want a new cover for your car seat contact the manufacturer. I needed a new one for baby #2 and Graco graciously sent me out an entire new set for free and I have a brand new look now. Also, the embellished top with the buttons which are a huge potential choking hazard.

  5. Jessica says:

    I’d really like the pattern for the first project, the green pants, but he link doesn’t seem to work. Anyone else have better luck?

  6. Amanda says:

    The wraps are cute, but it needs to be added that any stretchy wrap is not safe for back carries, and that 100% cotton guuaze shouold be used if yoyu are wanting to back carry

  7. Amanda says:

    on the carseat cover they are only unsafe if you remove the manufactures cover. a lot of covers can be made to go over all manufactuurer given parts
