Well, many of you know that we are expecting out first in a little over 7 weeks-YIKE-that is hard to believe! The hubbs and I decided not to find out what we are having-which has been a lot of fun-but it has made some things difficult. When you go into baby shops- it is usually devided into boy stuff and girl stuff-with very little in between. Now, girls can wear blues, greens, browns, and yellows-but little boys can not wear pink, flowers and little girly slogans. While I am touching on this-why is it that everything has to have a slogan right across the front of it! Little slugger, Future All Star, Mommy love me...I mean come on!!
My point is, there is a very limited selection of nice gender neutral clothing out there. This got me to thinking(late at night when I couldn't sleep but should be sleeping)....So I pulled out my old sewing machine(by old I mean this bad boy was purchased in 1998) and went serching for ideas on the internet.
This is my new project...
making my own baby gowns. I love baby gowns because they are cute and oh so easy! I can purchase my choice fabric or make them from old t-shirts(love this green idea)!
There is a great tutorial here for making baby gowns from old t-shirts
If you make one, please post a comment and share your pictures! I would love to see some of the results!
