I’ve had a LOT of friends lately that are pregnant. As a result I have had a LOT of fun sewing and knitting baby items as gifts for them. I had the fun project for one friend of mine to research on-line cost effective/Eco ways to re-purpose your current clothing into maternity clothing. I’m sharing this page with links to other ladies blogs and tutorials with some great ideas!!
