first time sewer.. want to show off

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay.... I am such! a lurker. I learn a lot from everyone, but rarely feel that I have the experience or eloquence to add to the conversation.
HOWEVER!
I have to share b/c I am SO proud!
I never had the patience to sew before... everything always ended up crooked or fell apart. I never had the patience to tear it apart and try again. I quit trying when I was about 15.

Until I wanted to sew diapers
New baby due any minute and I wanted to do some of it myself.
My mom paid for a lot of the materials... I just had to sew it.

So here are my first attempts.
A cover and a matching wet bag.

First:

Second: Congratulations on expecting!

Third: that's your first try - amazing! You should have seen the first diaper I tried to sew, it was a wreck! Post more pictures when you make them.

Thanks So much!!!

We used the Diaper Cover Deluxe pattern.

My mom made the first one following exactly and we are starting to adjust it a little...
We are having a hard time with the snap one for my toddler though, the instructions aren't really clear for beginning sewers.

I love that print too... got it from OSDS
