The Paige Collection, A Modern Farmhouse Nursery Collection

Paige Scarfie


A modern farmhouse nursery set featuring drool bibs, burp cloths, blankets, and all the goodies! My very first collection!

I’ve been working extra hard to create my first collection for a product line to feature in my future Etsy store. I had no pattern to work off of, yet I managed to figure it out—Paige’s Modern Farmhouse Nursery Collection. 

The Bandana Bib from Sunflower Cottage Crochet


The image above is my first attempt at a bandana drool bib. It turned out to be a scarfie for toddlers!

First, I made this with 100% cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Aqua. 

This is the softest cotton yarn I have ever touched and is a medium size 4 weight yarn that doesn’t pill or split. I am an affiliate of Hobby Lobby or their yarn; I love it that much I had to share! The skeins aren’t huge—only about 160 yards, but you will only need 1 skein for most of the baby accessories patterns, making it pretty inexpensive to work up. 

Most noteworthy, the Lily Sugar and Cream cotton is stiff and a little thick for a medium weight yarn. Yet yarn weights have a pretty large range in each weight category. 

In Contrast, another great yarn is Paintbox Aran or DK Cotton 

Paintbox cotton yarn is soft and easy to work with. Almost as soft and sleek as I Love This Cotton. Paintbox cotton is 100% cotton as well. These come in very small skeins of about 137 yards and many colors. I’m currently testing out “Vintage Pink” in DK Cotton from Paintbox, which is a 3-light weight yarn. 

The size of lighter-weight yarn will make the project a little smaller, which makes it a better fit for babies. And the 4 weight yarn makes it fit toddlers. 

Initially, I started out at the bottom 

Yet I worked my way up to the top and hit a snag—how would I work the straps? Unfortunately, this resulted in too much thinking for me.

So I frogged and started again–and this time, from the top. 

Suddenly, I remembered how diaper covers are made, and my brain said—AH HA! I figured out how to attach it around the neck. By using buttons! Finally, the pattern was taking shape, a bandana shape. I was getting super excited!

Taking a hint from my Paige Hat 

I decided to make an entire Handmade Nursery design out of it. I have two patterns incoming—the bandana bib and a blanket. 

The entire collection is available in our Etsy store, as will all the individual patterns if you wish to try making it yourself!
