Oh Baby!

What do you think of when you think of Spring?

Color, new life and a time of renewal all come to mind for me!

Cotton Clouds brings you a burst of color and new projects for the little ones in your life, perfect gifts for upcoming baby showers, first birthdays, and other fun events on your calendar.

Read on for our great baby kit deal!

Modern Cotton Project Inspiration

Modern Cotton, a Pima Cotton/Modal Rayon blend yarn, is a great choice for any baby project. The stitch definition, easy care and generous yardage is a great jumping point for so many projects – just imagine the possibilities!

Garments for babies and children can be a great way to learn a new technique, and they work up quickly. A special handmade Diggory or Rosebay sweater or Bilberry dress is also personal and more unique than anything you might pick up in a big box retail shop.

Wouldn’t the Babbity Bunny would be adorable peeking out of an Easter basket, and you can make two from one kit!

Of course, there is a baby blanket pattern and with the range of colors it is easy to go with a traditional colorway or bold and bright. We have kits for each of the projects shown above, they are a great click-and-purchase grab-and-go project!

Weaving for the Wee Ones

Is there anything cozier than wrapping up in a handmade blanket? Woven blankets are always a welcome gift! Durable and lightweight, you will enjoy exploring color and texture as you create the fabric.

Cotton Cloud’s Baby Blanket Weaving kit-of-the-month club will give you just the right amount of yarn for each project without having to buy full size cones.

Our Basic Baby Blanket Collection features all 100% Cotton blankets plus one luxurious silk/bambu blend yarn blanket.

The four kits included in the Deluxe Collection features bamboo, rayon chenille and 100% cotton yarns. All of the blankets are machine wash and dryable, a real plus for any baby item.

Truly Unique Baby Gifts

For a truly unique and special baby gift, take a look at this woven Heirloom Christening Gown. It is suitable for a boy or girl, heirloom quality, and affordable in perle cotton and Bambu. The kit also includes enough yarn to make a matching set of booties!

Baby-wearing is not a new idea but has come back into fashion. The Rosepath Baby Wrap will let Mom keep her baby close, calm and happy while having her hands free!

Exclusive FREESHIP KIT Sale! freeshiptruck
