I just realized today that I totally never blogged this project. Probably because it was pretty darn boring.
Because all I did was make a brown version of Megan Nielsen's great Ruched Maternity Skirt pattern.
And well, it's just kinda boring and brown I guess.
Good news? It still fits me at 36 weeks pregnant! Unlike the lovely blue polka dot one, which I can't get on anymore. I made this one almost two months ago, so it's gotten some good wear. Now I'm off work though, so it's comfy leggings for me till delivery methinks!
I did make the bigger size which probably helped, and visited my sister to use her machine with extra special stretch stitches which made the waistband more co-operative.
Please excuse the crappy pictures (again) I can never catch good daylight these days, and I clearly should work on my indoor photo lighting skills. :-)
Anyways, this will be it for maternity projects for sure. I'm taking it easy this week in order to keep this baby inside till at least 37 weeks (little M was early, and I don't want a repeat of that!)
I'm hoping I feel up to finishing some newborn projects, but no guarantees!

Yes, I realize it's been a week since Halloween, but what can I say, I'm slow these days.
So I'll make this post brief, and just show you a few dark and kinda crappy photos of the costume I made little M this year.
It's a variation of the Woodland Animal Costume pattern from Jessica of Running with Scissors. The same pattern I used to make his bear costume last year.
This year I made it into a dinosaur, but just adding in some spikes along the back, and also make a separate tail using Jessica's popular dino tail tutorial!
I made the 2T because I'm silly, and forget that my kid maybe little, but not that little, and so I should have made the 3T, but it just barely fits. The hood is really too small, but it was ok.
He won't get other wear from the costume, but he loves running around roaring at everyone in just the tail and his bear slippers!
P.S. Yikes! time is running short before the baby gets here! (I'm 34 weeks now!) I'm hoping to get a few more projects in yet. One more maternity project, and I'm hoping to post up a tutorial on making a shower cap style winter car seat cover (as there seems to be none online?) There are lots to make blanket type covers, but I need something more tight and windproof here for those Canadian winters, so I'm gonna attempt to make whats in my mind. Wish me luck?
