It's a....

I know what you're thinking, "I thought they weren't going to find out the sex." Correct. We were not. But we had our ultrasound & our technician neglected to ask us if we were going to find out, and well also, our little boy is anything but shy (he's also healthy as far as we can tell...which, as we all know, is the REALLY important part). :)  

I'm so excited to know the sex & I'm thrilled to be adding another little guy to our family.  I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I'm planning on making  baby's coming home outfit. Originally, I was going to make one for a boy & one for a girl. Which, now is unnecessary. I bought OOP Kwik Sew 2246 for just the occasion. So now we're on to fabric.  I'm loving stripes, but they are so easily found in RTW that it seems silly to go that route. I've been perusing Spoonflower instead & I've found some lovelies.  This one, so far, is my favorite (click the image to go to the source).  

And I also love this one....

And I'm only getting started in my perusing. :) The knit fabric from Spoonflower is nearly $30/yard (GULP!) so I really need to be sure about my choice. 

Next week I should have at least 3 maternity wardrobe pieces to share, too, so stay tuned. :)


  1. Oh, boys are so wonderful! Congrats to you and your hubby! I think that nowadays it is hard to keep the gender a secret with these OB/GYN offices. My husband and I had to be vigilante with my last pregnancy, or else we would have found out. I had a friend who was waiting to be told also, but the technician mistakenly told her too. Anyhow, now that you know, I look forward to seeing what else you create!

  2. A boy! can sew up those adorable infant baseball hats. I'm glad everyone is healthy :-)

  3. Sorry for coming in late here, but congratulations! Having just had a baby boy myself I am just finding out how difficult it is to find cute boy fabrics that aren't striped, there are so many more options for little girls. I can't wait to see what you sew for your baby 'cos I need some inspiration!
