19 weeks, 5 days preggofied
I have been so distracted at work lately. I swear, I should already be on maternity leave, because my mind is racing NONSTOP with BABIES and NURSERIES and NAMES and BABY STUFF and OH-MY-GOD-I-MUST-GO-HOME-AND-SEW-BIBS!
When I go home, I’m glued to the Singer — sewing bibs and burp clothes and going through as much flannel as I have in the house. When I’m at work, I’m in research mode (in between, you know, working).
I keep surfing sewing websites, looking up projects to make for Little Baby. One thing I haven’t really thought of is clothes!
Sure, I made that yellow sundress
like, a million years ago, but that’s it — not to mention that it won’t work if Little Baby is of the male persuasion.
Here’s a quick list of clothing projects I definitely want to tackle:
- A ruffled sun hat. After all, Little Baby is coming in May or June. I was a summer baby, and there are about 8,000 photos of me in a sun hat. Oh, while sitting in a kiddie pool. Must buy kiddie pool.
- A newborn nightgown. These are recommended for the newborn stage — girls and boys, ahem — because it makes it very easy for change their diapers. Plus, they’re nice and light for summer.
- A sleep sack. These will be perfect for the colder fall/winter nights. I always see them for sale in the baby stores. I might buy one, and use it to copy.
- A miniature version of Darling Husband’s uniform. I already saved the logo from one of his worn-out shirts, so this will be fun. Perfect for the first workplace visit!
- Jumpers! If Little Baby happens to be a girl, I’ll be bursting to create gorgeous jumpers (like this pattern from Smile and Wave). I love how Rebecca at Girl’s Gone Child sewed beautiful dresses when she was pregnant with Fable.
