Newborn Gear To Craft or To Purchase: 22 Totally Adorable Crocheted Animal Sets
Who doesn’t covet the newborn diaper and hat sets? Amongst my favourite are those of the animal kind. There’s something about a fresh, wrinkled, sleeping little baby, dressed in warm, knitted, animal themed gear. I can could barely contain myself (I know, total geek) in creating this round-up for you to enjoy.
You’ll find a mix of tutorials, patterns and ready to purchase little wild things in this collection, finished up with the best kind of geekling you ever did see. He may be the loner of the pack amongst his wild friends, but that’s par the course in the land of geekdom. These can be used as photo props, little costumes, Christmas outfits around the home, or just because! The newborn stage is so fleeting, you might as well revel in all of the cute possibilities.
All of the little ones, all of them gone wild...
Click through for a marvelous selection of crocheted hat and diaper cover sets. There are patterns and tutorials for those who are crafty and ready to purchase sets for all the rest! Don’t let these little critters get away from you.
The Wily Pooh Bear
Always up to mischief, usually revolving a honey pot. *Tsk*Tsk*
Wee Mousey Mouse (Pattern)
Only a baby could make rodents cute.
Sly Fox (Pattern)
Don’t be fooled by all of this cute. You’ve got to watch this one.
Sleepy Owl (Pattern)
Nope, I won’t stop it with the all of the darling. It’s my job to make your decision making process difficult.
The Best Kind of Bear
Winnie the Pooh may be a fictional character (debatable) but he’s still a bear. Therefore a wild thing indeed, however tame.
As my toddler calls all frogs, with much love and adoration. He loves him some froggies. As we can all see clearly why.
Maybe not a animal, technically. But I’m in fantasy land half the time anyways. Couldn’t leave this little Cookie Monster out of the bunch. Animal (of the Muppets, yes) – made me do it, that dude is coercive.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Pattern)
You just died, I know. These things can’t be helped.
You won’t get eggs from this little one, but ahm…well, you know. They DO lay things. Sorry. No more potty humour.
The Sweetest Minnie Mouse
Minnie Mouse is one of my favourite Disney characters, which you will surely be able to surmise by the end of the collection. Options in life and in fashion are always good, I say.
That Mickey Mouse, He's a Versatile Dude
Although this is a roundup for newborns, I couldn’t very well leave out the fact that you can indeed, custom order in toddler sizes. Whether or not you will then take them to Disneyland is up to you.
Fox in the Forest (Pattern)
Your little one will look darling all cuddled up in this cape and cap set. So soft, so comfy.
Puff’s offspring, I have on very good authority.
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
Rudolph may have been dubbed a misfit, but I’m pretty sure he’s uber famous, so.
The Darlingest Owl
So I have my owl lingo. It’s befitting. This is such a perfect hat that your nube really can wear anytime. Especially with the cold weather upon us.
Clearly these two are in for it. No complaints yet.
I’m not sure who has more fun. Me, in curating this round-up, the crafty ones creating these outfits, or the parents who purchase them. Heirloom worthy.
Bunnies Mean Business (Pattern)
Not so much attack of the killer bunnies, just don’t mess. Stink face supreme.
If it weren’t for their stink…skunks would be one of the sweetest critters around. Talk about a tough break. Good looking and smelly. Not this one though. Well, for the most part.
He may not be an animal, and perhaps a wee bit older than a newborn, but you sure are glad I included this one to finish things off – aren’t you?!
