Baby Projects

I am nearing week seventeen of my pregnancy, which is hard to believe. As much as I hate to admit it, I am starting to get a bit of a belly too, which is exciting but also a little bit scary (once the belly starts growing, who will know where it will stop). Since I am busting out of my clothes, I am going out tomorrow to stock up on some maternity essentials (new shirts, shoes, fun accessories).

But now that we’re only three weeks away from the “big” ultrasound (when I get to see my baby look like a real baby and find out Baby S.’s gender) I am starting to think about some baby-oriented sewing projects for the summer. I have already started cutting out fabric for a kimono pajama set that is gender neutral. I’ve had this adorable sock-monkey fabric for some time and when I saw the pattern in Amy Butler’s Little Stitches for the kimono pajamas, I thought the pattern would be a fun first project for baby.

I also stumbled across this baby quilt pattern from Oh Fransson!, and I am pretty sure I am going to make this quilt for Baby S. I can’t wait for the “big reveal” day so I can go out to the fabric store and start making it.

I don’t plan on going to crazy with the projects over the summer, as this pregnancy is a major life distraction and we’ve got to work on a nursery and making the house ready for baby. But I hope to make a fun Amy Butler diaper bag for myself in addition to these two projects. We’ll see how I feel come July and August.
