making something for baby

I dont really know how to sew and i definitely dont know how to knit or crochet but i really want to make something for my baby. I dont really want to make a tie blanket either.. ill be 16 weeks tomorrow so i have plenty of time. Any suggestions?  Is knitting or crocheting easy to learn?

Make a scrap book for him or her. Decorate it real pretty. Put pregnant pictures of you, ultrasound pics, you and baby's wrist bands after you deliver. Stuff like that. Best wishes hope's this helps

Crochet is easier than knitting.. only one needle to worry about.  There are lots of good you tube videos that will help you.

I Crochet and i find it easy, i learned when i was 10. I'm now 29. I have taught my 11 yr old, and I just finished making a blanket for this new baby.  I'm also into painting and drawing, so i painting her a picture on a canvas.
