Not the best pic, but here is a snap front sleeper I finally got the snaps and elastic done on.

I'd like to make some wet-bags, and try my hand at some diaper-covers, but I'm still a bit of a novice.

Is there a specific name of the cloth I'd ask for that's waterproof- or do I just ask the lady at the cutting table for waterproof cloth?

Also, the Post Partum Pads- are they a lot better than disposable? I mean, obviously not going in the trash is a bonus (Green, yay!), but are they more comfy? What material do you use? I would venture to guess flannel.

I need to take pictures, but so far I've made: a reciving blanket, a LONG burp cloth for my tall DH, a pillow-case style sheet for my pram mattress, a hooded towel, some wash-cloths, and I am about to make a cover for a changing pad.

OMG I saved a lot just buying some foam on sale instead of one of those contored thingies. We're co-sleeping, so the top of our dresser will be our changing station, baby has no room of her own for now.

The waterproof fabric you're looking for is Polyurethane Laminate or PUL. You may not have much luck finding it in a local stores, though some Hancock's carry it (mine doesn't ) You can find it online in tons of places. The diaper making forum is a good place to find resources.

Wow, everyone is so talented. I knit a little gnomey hat for the baby on Monday. You can see it here. I'm still working on the baby's blanket.

This might have already been asked, but what are everyone's favorite soaker patterns? I've knit the punk knitters one before, but it was for a charity (before I was pregnant) so I didn't get to try it. I also bought the Vanilla pattern a few days ago because it looked nice. Thoughts?
