This is going to come off as conceded, but so so be it… I feel so beautiful when I’m pregnant.

Honestly, I am filled with so much gratitude that my body is able to bare and birth babies that when I look in my mirror I see nothing but goddess glory. I feel like my clothes look great and my hair, thanks to the horse pill size that is pre-natal vitamins, is at it’s all time thickness. Though I may be sick and sore, I feel pretty. Oh. So. Pretty. Especially in a dress.

It’s also the one time I feel super confident wearing any kind of head wear. I know not why, but I just look way better in them when I’m preggers.

I had to take photos with my favorite wildflower while they were still in bloom – shooting stars!

I would have loved to throw in my 2 other cowkids in the shoot, but they’re kind of in the hard-to-take-photos-of adorable phase. But if I’m being honest, it was just going to be too much work and tears to pry them away from Grandma and the trampoline…

DIY Bandana Dress

How to make a cute and cheap bandana dress for your little girl

DIY Bandana Dress. Camo. countrybestblog.com easy sewing project dresses for little girls

I am not a sewer. I kind of hate it. But, this bandana dress was insanely easy for me to figure out how to make for my daughter! I made 3 of them and they looked so cute on her! I even had her wear it as she grew as a sort of shirt because it looked so darling. There were a few images of paisley dresses on Pinterest that I had seen after I had cowkid 1 that caught my eye. So, I decided to wing it in making one myself out of bandanas. After all 2 bandanas are around $4, so that’s not much of a loss if it turned out horrid. To my surprise, my easy peasy design worked and I headed back to Walmart for more colours!

Below are all the fun details to make one for your little girl too.

Supplies Needed:
Sewing Machine
2 Bandanas
Ribbon

Instructions:

(scroll down to see diagram)

Step 1. Wash and dry the bandanas. Decide what is the front and back (usually the back is slightly faded). Flip the top front over to the backside and sew in a straight line. Do this on both bandanas. This is where your ribbon will be threaded through so how much you fold over is pending on the ribbon size. Mine was folded over about 2 inches.

Step 2. Place the bandanas on top of each other so the fronts are touching. Then leave a gap for where the arm goes (about 3-5 inches may be) and sew a diagonal line inside to the bottom corner of the dress on each side. The sew line shouldn’t be too far into the bandanas.

Step 3. The dress is currently inside out so flip it outside in and thread the ribbon through the top part. You can do two ribbons and tie them over each shoulder or make it long and thread it through both tieing it only over the one shoulder.

Done!
