I want to make a lot of pillowcase style dresses.....but I'm only "pretty sure" that it's a girl and not completely sure (we're on team green).
I have a huge stash of fabric....some really pretty floral prints and would love to make a bunch of stuff with the cute vintage-y prints on the outside, lined with the brushed cotton polka-dot and stripe patters I have....but that's SOOO girly.
I don't want to make gender neutral stuff (mostly what my other two wore as babies) when I have come into owning such beautiful fabric recently. It's a bummer. Almost enough of a bummer, that I might want to find out the sex.
I don't know.
Doesn't it seem like that would be a cute idea for a summer baby? Little pillowcase style dresses??
What should I do? Make a whole bunch of girly little things...and a whole bunch of boyish little things...and then consign what I don't end up using?? The only thing about that, is you KNOW if I make some REALLY gorgeous things out of this beautiful girly fabric, I'm going to end up GIVING MYSELF gender disappointment if it's a boy, for the simple fact that I won't get to put all that gorgeous material on a baby!!
I also want to make myself some sort of birthing outfit this time. Something black....I don't know exactly what.Some sort of wrap or something out of very light fabric. A wrap that splits open in the front and back or something....I can see it in my head, but I can't quite articulate.
I want to make some lady pads, too...my last two pg's I wore Depends afterward, because they were the only thing that could contain my flow (I had SERIOUS big-time flow...I think it's just normal for me, it wasn't long, it was just a lot...my periods are like that too) - but this time, I want to make something that can keep up with that level of flow....a large diaper for myself (gulp, am I really putting this out on the internet!!) with large inserts or something like that, that I can change often or whatever. I want to make the outer cover something flannely, because the insides of my thighs are sensitive.
Yeah, that's what is on my "crafty radar" right now!! YES, PICTURES!
