Pacifier Binkie Clip
I love baby gifts that are practical and pretty. This pacifier clip is one of them! Skip those store-bought pacifier clips that are harsh on baby’s skin and instead crochet one of these in your softest baby yarn or even a nice cozy cotton.

Crocheting for a baby boy? Attach this to a simple single crochet cord to make it a bow tie. Stitching for a girl? Glue a baby hair barrette to the back and it’s instantly an adorable hair bow. These bows can even go on shoes as shoe clips. If they’re useful and baby just can’t get enough of them, crochet them in a few different colors.

Bella Baby Pullover
If you’ve crocheted a granny square before, you’ll recognize it nestled in this bright pullover. Granny square fans also know that granny squares are great stash busters, so grab your sport-weight scraps that coordinate well together.

Crochet Baby Booties
Baby booties are a traditional stitched gift for babies, but that doesn’t mean you have to crochet a pair that also looks traditional. Omit the embellishment for a pair that’s unisex, or add your own embroidered design. Flowers, stars, dots — there’s no limit to how you can customize these.
