Ok, so I'm on baby #4 and let me tell ya, things shift REALLY quick the 4th time around, it actually caught me by surprise and I had no maternity clothes in my closet. I went to the thrift store to look for some but man they are all super ugly, so I decided to just make my own. While I was doing that I decided to create a photo tute to share so that maybe I could inspire other pregnant ladies to do the same.

The tute is here: http://soulfulhuesknits.blogspot.com/2008/09/easy-repurposed-maternity-shirt.html

Here's the prototype:






Then I did a couple more. Blog post about them: http://soulfulhuesknits.blogspot.com/2008/09/couple-more-shirts.html

This one is my favorite so far:









Pants tute coming soon

I love them all, specially the white top. I would wear that now, and I'm not pregnant, I already have 4  Grin  You look super cute and comfy in all your new tops! Congrats on baby number 4, he or she will be here before you know it.

OH no no no. I meant once you give everything away it always happens, which it hasn't yet and that's how I would like to keep it, haha.

THIS is what I've been looking for! Thanks so much for the tutes. I had a depressing "shopping" trip today to check out maternity gear. I decided then that I needed to hit the thrift store and do some recons, but I'm a little timid and needed some inspiration. Thank you! Value Village, here I come...
