I have a LOT of sewing on the go due to the baby, although not all of it's for the baby - some of it is just in acknowledgement of the fact that I won't have the time or energy to sew for DD once he's born!
So, on my to-do list I have:
a winter coat (made with this awesome wool plaid I found at a thrift store for $2.50!)
two fairy costumes for her dance class (one will be a birthday present)
at least one of two quilts - I have fabric for a flannel one and a cotton one - for her toddler bed, which she'll hopefully be sleeping in more often when the baby comes!
a winter pinafore
a few winter tops
a really cute vintage dress from a pattern Mum gave me
a backpack for our trip to Disneyland in December
For the new baby (a boy):
a whole bunch of shirts, mostly made out of old men's shirts, if I can cadge some off family/friends/Freecycle
a whole bunch of little shorts, trousers, rompers etc
some onesies, if I can find a good pattern and fabric
a woven wrap (basically made by cutting a piece of stretchy fabric in half, so I should be able to manage that!)
a mei tai (I'm halfway through making it, and it's gonna be AWESOME!)
a knitted kimono-type top (halfway through)
some knitted baby hats
knitted bootees or socks, if I can gain teh skillz
Basically, enough clothes to last him for the first six months of life. :p
a maternity top I started making, and really need to finish before I outgrow it!
a maternity dress I started making, and really need to finish before I outgrow everything else and have nothing to wear!
a maternity/nursing nightie, out of some blue spandexy stuff I bought on a whim upon discovering I was pregnant, but don't really want to wear outside the house
a stretchy winter maternity dress, out of some red jersey I found at an op shop
His Christmas present! A manly apron with embroidered tools all over it. I didn't get around to finishing it before Christmas, but I really should get on with it...
A bag/pouch thing to hang down the back of the front seat of the car, so DD can reach a water bottle and books and things from her seat. Possibly two, for when the baby gets bigger.
Then after I have the baby, I'll need to find the time to make a few clothing items for me before our Disneyland trip - things I need a waist for, so I can't make them ahead of time! I have the fabric for a cool utility skirt full of pockets and zips and buckles; and a fabric and pattern for a cute 50s-style dress, which will require considerable alteration so I can breastfeed in it. And I want to make DD a red polka-dot dress like Minnie Mouse's, to wear to Disneyland. :)
Will I get even 25% of this done? Chances are slim, especially if I keep fainting every time I try to press a seam. Oh well. Dream big, end up with an awesome stash and a load of guilt, that's me.
