    I am just entering the world of sewing and I intend to learn to crochet soon as well.. But I am concerned with making sure that the clothing, blankets, etc. that I intend to create are NON TOXIC to myself and my family.. Since I have heard of all the toxins in dyes and material of many clothing...

    I need something productive to do for my little one due in Feb, so I want to start making cloth diapers. I made some 5-6 years ago for my older kids and liked the Very Baby AIO pattern but I added gussets. I used diaper flannel and organic hemp fleece. Any thoughts on those? I'm sure there...

    So this is my first post here, I lurk on here from time to time, but don't have any babes of my own yet. My cousin is having her 3rd child and has decided to try cloth diapering. She doesn't want to spend any money on a newborn stash and from what I understand is getting mostly OS AIO or pocket...

    I am due in about a week and have total diaper sewing fever but am running into a couple technical difficulties. I decided to go with Rita's Rump Pocket for my pattern. I've made a couple CDs so far that are flannel with a strip of PUL sandwiched in the middle. I spent maybe $20 on PUL from Kids...

    Hi ladies. It's been a long time since I've been on this forum, but I used to come here frequently. I've made tons and tons of diapers in my life but now, with baby number 4, homeschooling, and a new home with too many projects to count, I seriously just cannot even think about the possibility...

    So from my understanding microfleece wicks and other fleece repel water- but does anyone know WHY if they are all polyester? I dont understand. I have been using blizzard fleece as a liner to prevent diaper rash and while is does work a bit, without compression the water never soaks through and...

    would it work to not take out the stitching or old elastic and just sew the elastic with a zig zag stitch the length of the leg cuff? The idea of ripping out the seams on the amount of diapers I have is daunting. edited to add- i am working with happy heiney's one size pocket diapes

    There are a lot of sources for wool these days. Anyone got a great rec for an affordable, quality wool yarn? Alternatively, if I want to sew some wool covers, where would I find (or what do I look for) wool fabric that's not stripped of lanolin, or would be able to be "relanolized?"

    Any one used this pattern? I made several and they all leak horribly. I used 2mil pattern PUL from and used cotton velour and french terry from I also bought the snap press from and have issues getting my snaps to set right. Its like i'm not...

    Where has it gone? I have been watching the patterns page on the site for a few weeks and haven't seen it. Anyone have one or one like it they could share? I need a good cover pattern that uses velcro and PUL. I don't mind paying if it's not a pattern that's available for free.

    Maybe this is the wrong place to ask this since most people are probably GOOD at sewing here....LOL How hard is it for someone who can just sew a button on to replace the elastic in pockets?? I am contemplating it but am nervous I'll mess them up.

    I'm due to have a LO at the end of May and plan on CDing. I think eventually I'd like to try and make some of my own dipes. I found the Very website through a Facebook ad and was curious if anyone could to speak to the quality of their items and if their prices were relatively...
