The Pregnancy Countdown Tee for those who like to color!
I received some exciting news from a friend recently and knew immediately what I wanted to make her. You might be thinking, “Aw, what a good friend.” but really I have absolutely selfish motives. Since she lives far away, I wanted a guarantee on weekly belly shots so I can see her pregnant belly as that baby grows bigger and bigger. What better way to motivate her than to make her the perfect Pregnancy Countdown Tee. The original idea for the Pregnancy Countdown Tee calls for crossing off a number each week but, since she has a artist’s heart and boundless creativity, I knew she’d have fun getting to decorate the shirt herself as she counts down the weeks.

Print out Pregnancy Countdown Template, tape together and trace the template onto freezer paper. Iron freezer paper stencil onto the t-shirt. Place something in between shirt layers to protect the back of the shirt. Use fabric paint and a thin paint brush to paint only the outline of each number. Let dry.
Once dry, peel off the freezer paper and paint on inside circles for numbers 4, 6, 8, 9, and 0.
Wrap the Pregnancy Coloring Countdown T-shirt together with a package of Sharpie Fabric Markers and instructions. Now the recipient can color in or decorate a number each week in order to countdown their pregnancy! This makes such a fun way to keep track of the weeks and photograph their growing belly.
