in 12 photos. Here is my biggest baby project undertaking thus far, learning how and making a quilt. I wanted to use the napkins from our wedding that I hand screen-printed in a special way, so I designed a modern, colorful baby quilt to incorporate them. I have never tried so hard to cut and sew with pin-point precision, but I'm really glad I did, because it came out beautifully!
Like my studio, the baby room has the unfortunate circumstance of not having an overhead light, which is a pet peeve of mine. So, I crafted my own. It's a knock off of the West Elm Bentwood pendent or the CB2 Peel Pendent. I adapted the tutorial from this one, following the same basic steps, though I have to say, it wasn't quite as straight forward as they would have you believe. There were some bumps in the road that I will address below. But in the end, I think it looks awesome and for a fraction of the cost of the other guys' version.
Last time I checked in with my maternity style I was 20 weeks along and things have definitely changed since then, namely my belly, it's grown, a lot. Back at 20 weeks I was still wearing regular jeans and lots of non-maternity pieces. Flash forward 8 weeks and I finally bought a pair of maternity jeans (these), but still squeezing in a few last wears of the boyfriend jeans. I've been relying heavily on the t-shirt/blazer combo and soon have to invest in a few maternity tees that are long enough to cover the bump.
Meanwhile, I am still feeling great, though stairs have become my enemy, but I am keeping up my routine and trying to stay in shape as much as possible in prep for the cold, long winter months. If you follow me on instagram, you'll know that I've been busy with baby projects and the room is coming nicely, more updates on that to come.
