Well here's my first dipe. I realized what my mistakes were but by then it was all together and I didn't feel like ripping it apart. I started out making a prefold with a fancy outer layer and I ended up turning it into a contour. Excuse the crookedness of the loop, I tried to do it without pins (major mistake)<br><br>
Anyways here's some pics.<br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0288.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0288.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0289.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0289.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0290.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0290.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0291.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0291.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0292.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0292.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v168/moondancer7825/DSCN0293.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...5/DSCN0293.jpg</a>

Uhmmm Lets see if I can remember. The outer is a stretch knit, Then two layers of hemp jersey for the body and the soaker is 3 layers hemp fleece topped with a layer of micro fleece.<br><br>
I thought about adding a little elastic but I'm holding off on that. I'm still really new to sewing so I'm gonna wait on that till someone can help me with my first try of it.<br><br>
Not pictured is an add on soaker I made. I took some microfleece and sewed it into a pouch which I have stuffed with a soaker of three more layers of hemp fleece. I'm thinking its gonna be majorly bulky though. I'll have to try it out and see.

It's cute! I love that color of blue on the outside.<br><br>
Don't worry about the loop being crooked. As long as it still closes, that's all that matters!<br><br>
Great job <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Looks really good for your first attempt. Can't wait to see it IRL. I'm at work so I can't answer on my email. Sorry for posting here.<br><br>
Love,<br>

Don't worry about it mom. I've almost got an AIO done but I have to rip out the elastic on one side and redo it, hope Dakota likes them and that they fit. Now that I got the stupid machine cooperating it should go quicker.
