Free Pattern: Maternity Sash for Gender-Reveal
I've seen these pregnancy "flower belt" photography props on Pinterest and Etsy, and I knew I could make one. I love how it turned out.
1 or 1.5 inch ribbon, enough to tie around the pregnant belly
Yarn in coordinating gender-appropriate colors, varying weights
Buttons or beads
Make 5-10 flowers in coordinating, gender-appropriate colors. I made this one pretty small, for a mid-pregnancy gender reveal photo shoot. If you are making one for a full-term momma, you might want to make it fuller, by layering some larger flat flowers and expanding it out more. You could use a piece of felt to anchor a larger arrangement of flowers.
I made one small-size no-sew rose (worsted acrylic), three swirl flowers (baby weight), one rounded five petal flower (worsted cotton), and three bobble flowers (two baby weight, one sewn to the five petal flower; one worsted cotton). I sewed beads to the one of the swirl flowers and the rose. I also added a single leaf from The Hook Hound's pattern here.
Arrange your flowers on the center of the ribbon (since it's a photo prop, it's ok for the bow to be directly behind). Hot glue in place.
