Thanks for the info Phoebe. That would make sense as he's always like "Nice diapers but put speakers on them". Now of all the websites to visit why does he pick cloth diapering ones?
(sorry OT again)

You know I was going to take you up on this offer, but I am pretty sure this won't even fit my alien babies! Geesh what is the world coming too!?

LOL

I just went and examined it closely...
It is turned and top-stitched, which makes it very bulky and stiff. I guess that would also account for some of the shortness in the wings??

Well this is how I "see it", and I do hope someone DOES email her and helps her notice the flaws....

1. 7 layers of sherpa? OMG, don't you think that's excessive (3 in diaper 3 in doubler + 1 body in sherpa and 2 body in interlock/knit. This diaper WOULD be super bulky and take forever to dry.

2. My first thought was "corseted baby waist?"

3. turn and topstitched CB?, hmmmmm I wonder if she has allowed for seam allowence.

i could keep critiquing, but that wont help and can only lead to hurt feelings. suffice it to say, i've never been a cb fan and this explains perfectly why when i suggested to kimi to have cottage sewers for her poopockt pattern why she refused due to not being able to control quality.



*sigh I feel for her, but imo she needs more experiance/practice. When I trade or sell I try to let people understand that I do this as a hobby, and am by far at wahm quality. I know my dipes aren't perfect as I'd want to see when I spend oodles of money (which I don't/won't charge until i feel they are worth it). some people dont see the imperfections.

Ahhh tea the essence of life.

Ok, I thought I was . I'm new to CuddleBuns, so I wasn't sure if it was just me. I'll send an email and see. I've already won one of her other auctions:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ory=26269&rd=1
but it looked ok to my eye. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

My first CBs were from www.MyLittleTribe.com and I was sooo happy with them. So I hope this works out for the best.

I clicked on the instock link at her page, and all the CBs were $14.95 or so. But, I didn't notice that they don't come with a doubler. If you buy the doubler it comes out to about the same.

Sorry alien babies, no love here...looks like these are for human babies after all.

She just pinned the waist for the photo! She put a new pic on the auction...ok, off to bid! That print is soooooo cute it's worth a try!

Why would you pin the waist for the pic? I think it makes it look funky... I guess she thought it looked cuter that way.

Uh, what was the point of pinning the waist? : it looks freaky to me.

mostly WAHM, sometimes WOHM to my : two boys.

Well, if the only reason it looks weird is because she pinned it for the picture, that doesn't explain poor Jen & her not-fit-for-an-alien-diaper:

Well...
As a recent purchasee of one of her dipes, I would say that the picture is indeed accurate.

If anyone has a child (human or alien) that this will fit, I will happily forward this to you.
Weird...

SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! The print is too cute, I'm praying that Jen's was a fluke!

Jen - Have you emailed her to see if she'll exchange or fix it? She's got a guarantee, it’s worth a try.

Hope Jen's was a fluke for your sake. It really does look strange.
