Helpful Hints

  • Small baby items make perfect take-along projects. Granny squares, mile-a-minute strips, hats and booties work up fast and are easy to carry in a purse or tote bag.


  • Make a hat to match a preemie or baby afghan.


  • Use soft, washable yarns in pastel or bright colors. Try seasonal, holiday or sports team colors for hats, blankets, or "take me home" outfits.


  • Weave in all ends securely. Baby items are washed frequently and need to be durable.


  • Sew buttons securely. Unwaxed dental floss works well.


  • Avoid metal fasteners (snaps).


  • Ribbon or crocheted ties work well to fasten garments.
