Terrific Tees and Tanks!

I know this is a baby blog but I have to share non- baby news. I had a total confidence booster today. I followed tutorials to spruce up a plain tee and and plain tank and I LOVE them! Recently I have started reading a lot of blogs and some are really crafty. I found this post on the How About Orange blog that links you to a bunch of tutorials for adding ruffles to shirts. I decided to give 2 of them a try. I was so pleased that I was able to pull these off. I feel like I got some style for cheap! I bought 2 tees on sale at Target for $6 each, cut one tee up to add the ruffles on the tank (which I already had, I was actually wearing that in the last belly pic) and to add the "corsage" to the other tee.

Now, these are not maternity tops but I can't wait to wear them so I'll have to layer them with something to cover the ol' belly until the bun is done.

Baby is doing good, I really feel like walking more but it's so hot. He gets the hiccups a lot. Today I started my 38th I can't believe we are fast approaching the finish line. My last day of work is July 26th even if baby boy hasn't arrived yet. It would be nice to have time to tackle some last minute organization projects and maybe some more crafty projects, too!

My work had a baby shower for me on Thursday. We all got together for tasty treats and presents. They are so kind and generous and they are all rooting for the baby to come soon since I am getting SOO big!

Well, my energy is fading fast....I hope I can get to sleep tonight.


  1. Those sure are some stylish looking shirts! :)

  2. You did an amazing job on these. After baby boy is born, you'll have to give me some hints on how to do this. Great job!
