I have a baby coming soon...

I feel so much bigger than this picture makes me look.

And I didn't save any baby clothes after George was born.  I wasn't sure I was going to have another baby, and we lack storage in my house, so I just haven't saved clothes.  I'm 27 weeks and counting, and I really do need to get just a couple more things for my baby boy made.  Or I need to go to Target and buy the necessities, but there is no fun in that!!

The Quick Change Trousers are definitely going to be my *go to* pattern for this new little baby.  I love it.  The pants I made last night were made from cutting to final stitch in 1 1/2 hours.  A fast project which is my kind of project. This time I made the Quick Change Trousers out of three knit t-shirts the Italian was giving away.  I kept them out of the giveaway pile when I saved the two dress shirts I turned into pants for George.  Sorry I have no before shots of the t-shirts.


I do have some cute ones of the after product though.



Stripes on one side,





and solid on the other.  





Of course a little airplane onesie was a nice compliment to the mini pants.  What boy doesn't love airplanes?  (Even my big boy husband and his dad love them.)  



With 13 more weeks to go, I have a feeling this is not the last time you are going to see Quick Change Trousers with onesies!

Next up I'm tracing patterns for 3 different projects from Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings.  I'm off to watch Grey's Anatomy (and maybe Friday Night Lights) while I do some tracing!

The baby outfit is adorable! That's so great to be using all these recycled fabrics! I'm pretty sure I look more pregnant than you, and I'm not pregnant! You're adorable.

Um, you kinda look like you are just pretend pregnant and sticking your stomach out :) Hope you are feeling great this pregnancy! Can't wait to meet your little guy. I can't believe you are only like 6 weeks behind me.

What a great idea to make those pants out of Knit. So comfy and cute! Jack saw the airplane shirt and said, "I want a shirt like that!" :)
