If you missed the news, I just recently announced that we’re expecting baby #2. Since good ‘ol Pinterest wasn’t around with Elodie & life was crazy back then, I didn’t really document the first one. I knew I wanted a chance to document this one! Thanks to Pinterest, I found the perfect way to do so…
This Pinterest challenge came at a great time for me for me to share the shirt I made.
I went to Target & bought a plain white maternity shirt, then to a craft store to get stencils & fabric paint. Unfortunately, unlike the tutorial, I don’t have the supplies to make 1-40 stencils like she did, so I had to do them all separately using 0-9 stencils. Mine was probably more time consuming than hers, but it turned out great! Also unlike the tutorial, I didn’t make my fabric paint; I just bought red & black paint.
Once I placed the first couple of lines.. it started off well!
But then, using the stencils over & over again with the fabric paint.. I ran into an issue.
So my smart hubby suggested that I use a fabric pen instead. Great idea, right? Except.. you’ll need more than 1! BUY SEVERAL!
After a second trip to Target to get another plain white shirt.. I was back in business again.
It was smooth sailing from there & turned out great!
I added the “due: 9.25” as an extra touch! You like?
I was about 5 weeks when I finished this… and looked like this
And 5 weeks later.. my belly has definitely “popped.” People tell me that’s normal with baby #2, but I’m not ready to be in maternity clothes quite yet.
Please excuse my hair in these pictures… it’s been a long day! Anyway, there’s my project! I’m so glad to finally share!
