What is your experience with it. Does it work well for longies over night? I made my ds several longies and soakers out of it. We use it at night just fine. We have never woke up with wet sheets with these soakers I am not sure i would use it for a heavy wetter but maybe...

But I do have to say the covers I made my ds out of MM are buy far more pleasant looking. many are over a year old and you cant tell on the 20 wt MM but you can...
I have made several pairs for my boys (200wt MM)(one in dipes one not) they both love them for night time. On my ds thats still in dipes, i do use a cover underneath, generally i use a 1 layer 200 wt fleece. but he is a lite wetter I do not think I h=would have done it on super soaker ds1
[QUOTE=neveryoumindthere]also would suedecloth I have succesfully dyed sudecloth with procin dyes. it works great and the color is awesome, but it will not absorb as much dye as a thicker fabric. I liked our results. I think you would need an upolstrey type suede to make these type of shoes. But you can dye that as well. Dharma has great tips on that too. I have never done it myself but I have seen it done
that was the very first i bought. I ordered it from motherwear.com catalog. you have to like padding to like this sling. ds1 was 3 months old when i got it and he hated it but he was not one who liked to be swaddled. I found it difficult to adjust cuz of the padding. so we put it away with ds2 i got a maya and never dug out the slingezze. if you want to try it i can send you mine.
ds will be so excited when he wakes up in the Am...he does not know i got it done for him. kid size sling cant wait i bet it'll look great
ds1 told me it was ok if we did not get to play today cuz..."he wants his sling" so i knit all day long and *sigh* its finally done Kid Size Sling hes going to be excited when he wakes up in the Am I told him i probably wont finish til friday
