Ruched Materity Shirt

I picked up a cute maternity shirt from Old Navy during their clearance sale back in January and based a new shirt off of it.  They are pretty much the same, but with small adjustments like longer sleeves and more room in the shoulders so the neckline isn’t so wide.  The little ruffle embellishment at the neckline is circles cut to the center, then opened up flat and sewn so it hangs in folds.  That may not make much sense, but leave a comment if you’d like more explanation.   It looks better on a person than lying on the ground.    And even better when the sun isn’t shining in my eyes. I’m not a very natural model and Mr. Jiggs and I felt a bit silly taking pictures at the park while the two little piggs were playing with a remote control car.  Well, Pigg#1 was driving the car and Pigg#2 was running away from it sobbing or standing still sobbing–petrified because she couldn’t figure out how to get away from it fast enough.  So focus on the shirt and not on my my modeling. And yes.  Pigg#3 is on his way and should arrive the middle of...

Tie Shirt

I’ve seen tutorials for these little tie onesies in many places and finally decided to make one to go with the knit receiving blanket and hat I made for a baby shower.  I didn’t particularly follow any tutorial because it is pretty simple, but I didn’t come up with the idea myself.  And then I thought it was so cute (and I’ve always wanted to make one for my own boy but never gotten around to it) that I cut out several more ‘ties’ so I can make a quick gift when I need it.  And the fabric came from one of Mr. Jiggs’ old dress shirts that I had to cut up.  I’m sure it will show up again in other projects because I love the blue and green combo.  They were my wedding colors.  And are colors in my kitchen.  But don’t worry…I’m starting to expand a bit.  My living room is spinach green and brown. I think it’s perfect for taking your newborn to church!  Comfy and a bit more...

Receiving Blanket and Knit Hat

I saw tutorials for binding knit with rib knit to make receiving blankets and matching knit hats and thought it was perfect to make for a baby shower I went to recently. Except I have very little Boy fabric.  At least knit.  So I went for a white blanket with blue binding.  I wish I had had better knit that white because that first blowout will probably stain the blanket.  But It will be good for church at least.  And I do like the color combo.  Just not as practical as I’d like it to be. The Tutorials are over at Make It and Love It.  I love the color of blue and am so glad I have some leftover that I can make some more projects...
