Happy to be a mommy and teacher to D , born 1-17-06 via and A , born 10-6-08 with a
Those are so cute!! Did you make the pattern yourself or, if not, what pattern did you use? I'm just starting to learn how to knit and am half-way through making my first soaker. (I'm surprised how easy it is!) My Mom has already made one (she's been knitting for 50 yrs we figured out!) and it's super cute, she used a pattern that she used back when I was in diapers so can't remember where she got it from. I really like your longies though... I want to knit some so if you have a link to the pattern you used I'd really appreciate it if you'd share!!!
Other than that, I've bought one of each of a few different diaper brands to see how I like them before I start really buying. So far I'm really liking the Growing Green One Size fitteds -they are SO soft! I know I'm going to do fitteds with some prefolds thrown in and I'm going to try to do wool as exclusively as I can for covers. I want to knit my own mostly, but I did buy one Aristocrat to see what it was like and I'd like to check out Loveybums as well. Also thinking of having some pockets on hand for outings though.
So I still need to get my stash!!! But at least I'm making decisions, which is better than I was a month ago feeling really overwhelmed with the choices.
|Wow!! I sew, but I am just now teaching myself. The lines of my DD's dresses I make for her are so funky I am too intimidated by making diapers, especailly the sewing down eleastic part.|
Diapers are GREAT for teaching yourself to sew - make the first few out of something cheap, like old t-shirts or flannel sheets, and I bet you'll be surprised just how easy it is, even the elastic! And if you use something cheap you won't feel bad if you mess it up. I actually think diapers are waaaaaaaaaaay easier to sew than things like dresses. And since I started sewing diapers I think I've actually become a much better seamstress.
Good patterns - what kind of size do you want? Free or not? Darling Diapers has a free newborn pattern, but I think the full Darling Diapers pattern is totally worth paying for - really detailed instructions, 4 different sizes, from newborn to large, and pretty much every possible option you can imagine (side closing, front closing, snaps, touchtape, covers, pockets, fitteds, whatever you want).
