I just uploaded some pics of the two diapers I finished yesterday. One is a camo looking AIO and the other is an FB knock off attempt. This is the album where all my diapes are going to be uploaded to so it's got pics of the tyedie contour I did as well.<br><br><a href="http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/babcocks2004/album?.dir=/37e7&.src=ph&.tok=phFXdCDBXEO0n9Z2" target="_blank">http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/babcoc...FXdCDBXEO0n9Z2</a><br><br>
Now I'm all done till I get this machine replaced. 5 broken needles is getting a little expensive!

Lookin' good mama! I have that same blue tie dye knit. I'm making it into a nursing sundress for myself, and the leftovers into fitteds for Z. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ITA about broken needles, I hate it when I break my twin needles!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh">

Aw, they look great! I love the camo print <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm with you about hating the broken needles. That drives me crazy, esp if it's a $4 twin needle!

Yeah I got over that fear. Had to rip out some of the elastic and redo it but that's ok. Also found that it's easier to stitch it to one side and then go back and stitch it to the other side versus folding it over and stitching only once.<br><br>
The FB knock off isn't as good as I'd like but I wasn't using a pattern or anything and only made slight modifications to the template I used on the camo one so I think it turned out pretty good.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong with the elastic? IF you look on the FB knock off inside view you might be able to see what I mean but it just doesn't seem like the elastic is rolling right. On one side it seems ok but on the other side it almost seems like the elastic is rolling outwards! What am I doing wrong?

I have to admit I love the teddy bear for a model but it's really a necessity thing. DS is 7 DD is 6 and we're TTC#3 so no real life model until yesterday when my little brother came to visit now I can use him as my model and guinea pig. I actually did make these dipes for him though. Unfortunately I have to go back and add more loop to the camo because when we tried it on him tonight it doesn't fit! It would if I had put more loop on though. Oh well. Just trying to get things perfected so that when we have another I'll have plenty of perfect diapes sitting here waiting. The only difficult part is trying to find cute but nuetral fabric. I would love to do some in pink but don't want to waste the fabric in case we would have a boy.<br><br>
Ok now I'm rambling. Sorry bout that.

humm... can't tell, did you do anything different? I mean I am not sure how the elastic is sew in those, is it sew into the inner seam? maybe you sewed it on to a different side of the inside seam kwim?
