I def. need to make legwarmers, some of the diapers we have are going to give bean some serious junk in the trunk.
the adventures in fluff link that I posted uses the GMD sizing, FYI.
My husband and I have been practicing on a teddy bear we have for bean, and as usual, Chris is better than me.
Diaper number 2 today! I already had to re-start because I forgot to turn the t-shirt inside out first, d'oh! BUT the line I did get done before I realized my mistake went way way better.
I was planning on making a crib-sized mattress pad and lanolizing it. I got a nicely felted wool blanket at Goodwill for $5, and I'm just going to cut it down to the size I want and lanolize it in the tub.
Wrenmoon, would you use a walking foot for making prefolds (multiple layers of tshirts w/a flannel cover)? I make baby quilts as gifts and often think I'd get more professional look with a walking foot. Hmm... maybe I'll finally cave and buy one.
I agree, I bought mine for quilting because the thick layers just were not working with a regular foot. So it's great for that, but it is also a LIFEsaver when sewing knit fabrics like t-shirt material. They don't pucker and bunch and rumple under the foot with a walking foot. It would have been almost impossible for me to make the diapers I made without one!
The only downside is that you can't sew backwards with it, but I love it so much that I just leave it on my machine all the time and just lift things and turn them around when I need to backstitch.
Mine cost about $20.
