Little Somethings for My Little One

In between wrapping things up at work and working on my never ending to do list at home, I've allowed myself to dream of simpler days making before my son arrives. There are so many things that I want to make him - nothing too complicated but little somethings to show him how much I love him. I'll be sure to post the projects that I actually work on (and hopefully accomplish)! None of the following photos are my own:
First on my to-make list are burp cloths. I've seen a couple different styles over the years and think these ones are super sweet! Tutorial found here. I would like to make a blanket or two with the same, simple technique. I may do additional quilting on the latter.
This Contoured Changing Pad Cover tutorial can be found here. I get to re-decorate a bassinet that's been passed down in my family which includes mattress cover(s). I liked this idea. I'm really looking forward to this project!! I have no idea how I'm going to decorate it just yet. ;)
 I thought this was so clever and a really quick project.
 I love these Neon-Painted Boxed Totes (Tutorial at MADE). This is something I definitely want to make at some point - if not before the bebe - although it would adapt into an adorable diaper bag! We shall see. :)
How adorable is this plushie?! I found it on mmmcrafts and she used a tutorial she found at Chez Beeper Bebe. Totally love! In the process I found the cutest idea for what to make my nephew for his 2nd birthday. Yay!
This bunting was found on Etsy in a shop called SparklePower. I've made one of these fabric strip garlands before but I love this one and the tutorial I found at Bump Smitten. Even if I don't end up hanging one of these in his room/space I think they'll make super cute photo props! 
This granny square blanket by Revlie on Etsy has been on my dream to-make list for a LONG time. I found a great tutorial on Purl Bee. My mom knows how to crochet so I'm hoping she can help me with this one! I want to make it large enough to use as a snuggle blanket over the years. :) Wish me luck!! ♥
