What a delightful book of baby crafts! “Make It For Baby” tells how to make all kinds of necessities for baby’s nursery, 1950s style.
The author will have you ready to stitch a layette and embroider it, knit and crochet some accessories, and then you can practice your woodworking skills by constructing a crib! Some cute toys to make, too. As the book says, “It’s really an adventure, getting ready for a baby,” and this will get you started.
