I just made these this weekend.... finished up with the snapping today. Inners are organic cotton/bamboo velour, and the trifold snap in soakers are OBV and organic hemp/cotton fleece. This noob will have quite a cozy bum!!

Plus, she gets the bigger girls hand me down stash, and diapers from a diaper shower on the diaper sewing forum. She'll have a nice little stash!! They're all fattycakes fitteds (My own pattern )

GORGEOUS, mama! I love all your outer fabrics.

I've finished a NB stash of 30 dipes, and have 30 smalls all cut out except for the outers. My fabric just came in the mail over the weekend, and I'm looking forward to getting it cut up today.

Isn't OBV just da bomb?!?

Those are FABULOUS!!! I'm sooooo jealous of your baby!

I too am very jealous of diapersewing Mamas!! I've ventured into sewing my own fleece/wool covers (also very fun!) but I would sooooo love to sew my own diapers in lucious fabrics like that!!

I just got an OCV/BF and I swear I want to sleep with it! I just kept thinking how lucky to be that Mama's baby!!!!

You mean this whole time I've had the 'original' Fattycakes Mama in my ddc, and I didn't even realize it?

LOL, yeah... that's me The fattycakes mama!!


I still have all her pocket diapers to sew up... so I'm not even close to being done. I still have to knit more soakers. I don't know why I waited so long to start!! Now I'm rushing and panicing!

I'm with you, mama. Hugs. Now off to my sewing room. Or... should I knit the cuffs onto those soakers??? Hmmm, off to do something productive, anyway...

Those aer SO pretty! You are making me want to get my machine out and sew a few up for my boys! I sewed several pockets for DD#2, but I'm not suer I'll have time after the boys get here. I do have a few pocket making friends IRL who are making me some, though Just think how soft they'll be on your baby's bottoms :heart:

Ditto with the sewing envy! I love those diapers, they are soo pretty!
I know how to crochet, or at least I used to used to. And I can knit..half-assed. I wish I had spent more time learning those, I would have so many cute baby stuff now!
I am so bugging my mother to reteach me when she comes down.

waiting on the power of the three wolf moon.

So cute!!!

I've only got six outers cut out, I haven't even washed my inner fabric yet... I'm doing 40 newborn diapers and 30 smalls, I should probably get to work!
