*Sorry it's taken so long to get pictures posted. First all the problems with the cord, then my DS was pretty sick yesterday and now they're taking FOREVER to load into Photobucket. Anyway, I have some of them ready to post so check them out, here and here
and here and here!
I hope these links work!!
Thanks for looking!*


I have stacks and stacks of newborn/small diapers in my sewing room, more cut out and stacks of fabric to work with. I think I have 40 newborn and small diapers already completed (mostly flannel fitteds, sherpa fittes and PUL/suedecloth pocket dipes) and probably another 30 cut out.
Right now I have a close friend that is due in April, my cousin due early July, DH's cousin due in August and I'm making diapers for all of them! For DH's cousin I'm just making some to give as a gift but for the other 2 I'm making their entire stash! On top of that both me and my sister are TTC and I'm working on diapers for both of us!
I can't wait to post pictures!

I have to either wait for my sister to come over so I can borrow her digital camera, or I have to use up a roll of fill and get it developed! Do ya think I need a digital camera!

Wow! Gotta see those pics!!!!

My brother hasn't yet told me whether he's CD'ing or not. He's ALOT more crunchy than I am, so I think he probably will. If he does, I might have alot of newborn diapers to make by the end of March. Eek! I need to make a few for my friend due in May - she wants to use sposies for the newborn period and then switch to cloth when the sizes even out and you don't have to buy more diapers. Although she will test some newborn diapers for me and that might convince her to switch earlier (can we say "poop leaks" with sposies on a newborn?!?!?). And then I'm TTC right now (two negative tests down - I should *really* wait until the day of my expected period ), so I'm hoping to need to make newborn diapers for myself this year! We'll see.

Maybe if I start sewing newborn diapers now, it will get those eggs and sperms doing the happy dance quicker...

I want to see them too. I love itty bitty dipes! I may have to go make some now.
It takes me forever to sew....40 dipes would take me at least 80 hours!

I've been doing them assembly-line style. I spent a few days cutting out the flannel, and then I just left them stacked next to my sewing machine. If I had some time to sew I'd sit down and sew the elastic in or sew the soaker in. I have little piles and baskets of each step.
I'll figure out someway to take some pictures and I'll get some of my sewing room too!

You're so sweet Jenn! I've got something to inspire you, but it's a secret. You'll find out later.
I'll get those pictures posted as soon as I can get my sister down to my house! She's in college so she's pretty busy...I'll probably have to wait until the weekend.

I would love to see your pics! You go, Super Mama!!

So....my sister brought me her camera but forgot the cord, so I can't transfer them to the computer! She's supposed to bring it over tomorrow, so I will put them up as soon as I can!

Cute cute cute!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really need to get started on NB diapers... Maybe that will cause those pregnancy tests to actually show a positive, since I'm pretty sure I am!

Those are great! I love the patterns, but the first one is EXACTLY what I want to make. I just received my VB pattern (is that what you used?) and I am trying to get everything together such as fabric and everything else to start making my newborn stash. Would you mind sharing what materials you used? Fabrics?

The white dipes are the Very Baby fitted pattern, all the rest are Poquito Pants. With the Poquito Pants pattern I added a little bit through the crotch so they'd be more absorbant.
I have more pictures, I'll try to post more later

cutie tootie!! I love those prints!

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

The first one is made with the Very Baby pattern and I used sherpa. the one on the left is the newborn pattern and the one on the right is the mini-diaper.
Here are some more (I still have more to transfer to photobucket):
Pirate Print Flannel
Orange Polka Dots
Assorted Floral Prints
Orange & Green Flannel
Stars & Moons Flannel
