oh I am totally going to make myself some! Sure beats spending $25+ on them! Thanks!

Do you mind if I post this idea in my due date group?

Go for it! I'm sure someone else has already came up with this idea, it's not that original.

I haven't seen too many people talking about making their own - so you get lots of credit for that!

Sweet! I actually kinda stole the idea from a DIY maternity pants tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28377 I just didn't put pants on the bottom of mine.

One thing I have found, after wearing one of these all day yesterday, was that they tend to ride up a lot if you're constantly sitting then standing or laying down or whathaveyou. So they might work even better using a shirt or fabric that has a lot of stretch to it and can move with you, whereas a regular T-shirt would only have a little bit of stretch.

Re: Make your own belly band - easy and CHEAP!

just had another thought for your bands...

For those Mamas who are very selfconscious nursers and/or use nursing tees, this would be the perfect (and much less expensive) alternative!!!

That's not me by any means, I don't care if someone sees a side shot of my bare muffin top, but I might be changing my tune as I'm nursing in the middle of a Montana winter this time, This looks like a great way to keep my fat warm!
