Part of the fun of planning for a new baby is shopping for all the tiny clothes, shoes and accessories you imagine dressing on that tiny body. Let me introduce you to one of my favorite Etsy shops for darling baby stuff: HandSpun Creations.
HandSpun Creations specializes in crocheted baby gear — everything from tiny shoes to hats to toys and even some fun items for mom. I think these pictures speak for themselves, but I can’t stop myself from oohing and ahhing over how darling each piece is:

Every item is made to order, by hand, in Salt Lake City, UT. When it comes to cute baby stuff, you’re totally covered — baby can wear these on a regular basis or you can hold onto them for special occasions or photo shoots. Keep them for your own baby or give it away at a baby shower where you’re sure to win the award for most creative, unique gift.

The amigurumi animals are particularly cute, and perfect for babies and kids. Each piece can be made to order in almost any colors you want, and since the entire thing is crocheted there are no small parts that are unsafe for babies to chew on or swallow. Lovey princess toys (think Snow White, Belle and more) also come with dresses that spread out to 18″ wide, making them the perfect security blanket for little girls.

I have made a few special orders through HandSpun Creations as well, including this darling bow tie for my baby to wear to my brother’s wedding in January. Finding a mint green baby bow tie in the middle of winter is harder than you might think — but they accepted my random request and got it to me in record time:
