Fabric Paint Onesies

 I had a little fun with fabric paint today. For the gold onesie I just made an outline of a collar and filled it in. Then I took a small cork and dipped it in the paint to make the fake buttons. It took two coats of paint. After it was dry I placed a piece of material over it and ironed it a little to set the paint. I then hand sewed the bow onto it. Before I attached the bow I burned the ends so it won't fray.

For the mock pearl shirt I used the same cork and stuck a push pin in the top to hold it, and dipped it into the paint and just free handed the necklace. Then I flipped the cork over and used the bigger end to make the larger string of pearls. The pink flower I already had left over from making headbands a while ago, and I hand sewed it on. I found the little shirt at a second hand store, I'm pretty sure it is one that the hospital uses. I'm going to put it on my baby after she's born, she going to be the fanciest baby in the nursery, hehe!

 I'm 27 weeks and huge! I get asked when I'm due constantly. When I say October I get a lot of deer in headlight looks. Yes my tummy gets huge, it has with the my two previous pregnancies also. I've also been asked if I'm having twins, nope! I do feel nine months pregnant already though, does that count?
Sorry for poor picture quality on this post. I really enjoyed making these you should try out freezer paint. You can get a small tube for $0.99 at Hobby Lobby!

Boppy Pregnancy Pillow Review

I was so excited to review the Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow. 
It truly is a custom fit!  What I loved most about this pillow is that is is actually three separate pieces that Velcro together. The Velcro is very sturdy so you don't have to worry about it coming apart during the night. 
I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and I already need a pregnancy pillow.
I already bought one of a different brand a few months ago, and I prefer the Boppy. Why? Because I toss and turn a lot at night and it's hard to flip the entire huge pillow over with me when I want to switch sides. I like to use the pillow without the middle section. For some reason I can stand anything touching my stomach at this point. I'm also pretty tall, so I think this pillow is great because you can customize it for your height/size.

 The pillow is so comfortable for your head! I will probably be using it after I have the baby. The longer portion goes between your legs so your hips are aligned and it's so comfortable! It's so much easier to switch sides when your hips get sore during the middle of the night. Why not use two normal size pillows? Honestly the shape of these really does make a difference. I used a ton of pillows with my first pregnancy and they were so large and bulky, and did not hold their shape. So they were pretty much worthless. I highly recommend this pillow for your pregnancy. It is a must have! There are only a couple of things I would actually splurge on during pregnancy, and this would be one of them!
