Crafty Mamas - Whatcha' making? - Page 5
Thank you! They are cotton tshirts or knit on top, one layer of OBF, two layers of bamboo/cotton batting (probably overkill for most newborn/infants, but I have heavy wetters so far) and a last later of OBF by the baby's bum. I LOVE the OBF... it's the first time I've worked with it and it is the softest material ever! I used indian PFs for the other girls which are great, but these are like luxury prefolds in comparison. Do you think baby will notice??? Nope. Haha! They are just as bulky in the center due to the extra soaker layer, but all over, they are a bit trimmer than a cotton prefold and MUCH easier to fit!
I am so jealous! You ladies are crafty! I started a doll for DD for Christmas and so far that's about it. I have to get a little better at knitting before I tackle a hat (so far I can only knit stitch, no purl-ing at all). I really want to be able to make a pair of booties or something similar before the baby comes. We'll see. Just got a sewing machine so I anticipate diapers in my near future. Those are adorable!
you ladies are so talented! i love all the little woolens. i have crocheted one baby hat so far. i am in a christmas crafting frenzy atm, but after the holidays i plan to sew all kinds of baby things. does anyone have a link to an easy crochet longies/soaker pattern? i am dying to make some for my girls. i spin yarn and have tons, so i need to get crafty with it. :)
I'm also going to task DH with getting the terrarium glass washed, and he needs to figure out how much of the aquarium rocks, charcoal, and soil we need so he can pick them up from the store. Then we'll go plant shopping after that is taken care of. I need to figure out where to store that many terrariums, though...hmm. Especially since bright, indirect light is scarce in this house.
Jillian, I saw this super easy, cute blankie on Pinterest. Maybe something DD could help you with?
(I'm also not bothering with the iron-on vinyl.)
Plus I have been working on solstice gifts for my older girls. Out of old shelving I built two wardrobe closets for their Bitty baby and American girl doll clothes. I can't wait to give these. I covered each one with fabric that I picked out to fit each girl and even covered the shelves too. Added a dowl rod and ordered little hangers. So fun!!!!
A sign I made for my SIL who had her 1st in December. Thinking I need one too, for the UPS guy etc. I hate when they knock really loud and walk away!
Got some new cloth wipes made for the baby, figured he could use some new soft ones. The ones we have used with DD for over 2 years are still holding up, but not so soft anymore.
And finished re-upholstering the platform rocker that will go in the nursery (when it is ready,...someday)
