I shortened a pair of maternity pants for the summer.
Then I added lace panels to the sides.
Now I just need to remove the basting stitch.
I’m out of inspiration for the time being. There are plenty of things I want to make once I’m back to a non-maternity-wear me, but, for now, there’s the shortening of pants.
My ladies are throwing us a baby grill (girl) party next weekend (in lieu of an all girl baby shower). It’s a pretty unique affair with games (like a ‘don’t break the water balloon race’), scandalous prizes, as well as great food and drinks (I heard tell of white russians to be served in baby bottles). They’ve put a lot of time and love into putting it together and, in the meantime, I got together their thank you presents.
I ordered personalized flasks for each lady,
except for my pregnant friend, who’s getting a “Green Shirt Thursday” pregnancy tank that I stenciled
to match her husband’s “Green Shirt Thursday” t-shirt (which he wore every Thursday during the years we spent together in grad school).
(For the picture, I hadn’t yet peeled out the “holes” in the Es, S, D, and A because the paint was still a little wet.)
Then I wrote everyone a card and made gift bags.
I love giving presents. I hope the gals are happy with ‘em.
