Gorgeous diaper and I also think Christy's work is fabulous. I would pay that much if I really wanted it. I think that her diapers are worth a lot, especially since they are so hard to get. That will be one royal tushie:-)

It is georgous but I can't afford $155 for a dipe. I'd have to have 12 DC and be able to pass it down to each of them in order to justify it and then still wouldn't buy it. SORRY, I have a tight budget and I HATE to spend $$. I do want to say again it is very beautiful.

Wow. Some of you would seriously pay over $155 for a diaper? Seriously? Granted, it looks beautiful, but still.

It's not just a diaper. It's a hobby! It's a work of art! It's something that brings happiness. Totally worth it! Some people spend all their money on video games. Some have a hundred pairs of shoes. To each her own. Spend your money on what makes you happy. Give me soft wearable art to put on my baby any day!

That diaper is beautiful but I could no way afford to spend that much on one diaper...I hardly even have that kind of $$$ to spend on my whole stash! ...

ONTH..If I was rich, I would def. support that kind of diapering

Christy is such a wonderful wahm. Her items are hard to get for a reason. They are fabulous!!!!!!! My computer and my fingers are not fast enough so I get it the next best way. Pay up the ying yang for it.

I actually picked that dragon for a custom and Christy had made a double with another color windpro. Dh and I liked the other more so the blue one went on the auction block. And YES! I am sure it took a lot of work. It is a very complicated design. In my opinion, it was worth it and then some.

If I could afford it. Totally. But right now I can't justify that kind of expense for a diaper.

Yup, I would and I have. I would have LOVED that AIO but we just bought a house and need a washer and dryer so I had to put that first over fluff.

Christy's diapers (and Christy herself) are worth it. I'd pay triple that for Christy herself

I would if I had the money!

I would never, ever let DD wear it though. I would just sort of hang it on the wall and pet (with clean hands!) and admire it every time I passed.

I would also never mention it outside of MDC, because NO ONE else understands!

Yeah, killer dragon. I keep going back just to look at it. I've been on a dragon kick lately, but I keep missing them, d'oh! I really like the look of embroidered dragons right now. Someone is gonna get a killer diaper, b/c you KNOW it is gonna look so much more cool irl.

Are her designs done by hand or machine? I can't imagine doing that by hand. It would be worth WAY more than $155.

ETA: Ok, looking at it again, there's no way that would ever be done by hand. Sooo, why is it so difficult to do? Don't you just put the thread colors on, choose your design, put the diaper fabric on the little stretcher thing, and push some buttons? I don't see the difficulty.

machine I believe Kathryn... but even by machine that dragon is likely to have taken at least 2 hours to stitch out (if not more)... a ton of stabilizer and who knows how many thread changes. Not fun

It was done on a embroidery machine. Not by hand. I am not sure if you have a embroidery machine, from your comments, I would think not. 40,000 stitch count took over 2 hours I would think. Lots of thread changes and embroidery thread is not cheap. Lots of stabilizers and a really good machine. Add that it is fleece and there is more trouble. It is not as easy as you think.

Wow, that is a long time. I thought the machines were a bit more advanced than that by now.

Oh yes...that would definitely take a LONG time to stitch out. The embroidery looks flawless too (and I know how hard that is!!)
