Default Newborn props - Swaddlers/Cocoons/Wraps/Slings

There's a small shop in my area that sells these kind of things but they seem to be very expensive.

I was just wondering how much everyone pays for these kind of items?

I also get mine from Etsy..... but someone just recently told me about a few knitting clubs for senors in my hometown, they do beautiful work and they are much cheaper.... you might want to check some senior center's in your location

Hmm, okay I'll look into that.
Thanks for the heads up!

I use a lot of Tric's pieces. She lives near me and Ive been to her home a few times and picked out yarn colors. She's one of the nicest people I've ever met and my customers LOVE her pieces. They're so soft, and the babies seems to love them!

I hadn't knit for years, but I decided to knit my own newborn stocking caps with long, long skinny tails that look like a pumpkin stalk. I made them from that really soft, squishy yarn called "velvet" and they are awesome. I did a soft pink one with a white brim and tassle, a mauve one with white brim and tassle, and a rich red with fuzzy white brim for Christmas shots. By the time I finished the third one, I had averaged 5 hours on each one, and about $5 worth of yarn. I'm sure that the etsy knitters work faster than I do, but now you can understand why they are so expensive. When my friends saw them and wanted me to make one for their prop trunks, I just laughed and told them it would be cheaper to get them on Etsy....

I actually just finished knitting my first baby hat! It was pretty easy too. I am going to be getting some more patterns and make a few. It does take time but it is fun to do. Hopefully I will become faster with time...lol

You could also try http://www.alwaysunderpay.com. I just saw a review of them on a prop blog. Their prices are great.

After spending $75 stinking bucks on just three tiny hats, I decided to go to our local yarn shop and sign up for knitting class. I am currently working on my first newborn hat. I plan on offering the hats to parents for purchase.

If you all are in need of some inspiration for some newborn pics, and props etc...check out a local photographer that has inspired me somewhat recently...she uses great textures with all kinds of different props...some of them which are just products from designer Jonathan Adler.

Her name is Beth Jansen - http://www.bethjansenphotography.com/blog/
Some of her props from Jonathan Adler - http://www.jonathanadler.com/index.php
