2 yds of short OV, 2 yds of OC fleece which I bought through a diaper fabric co-op. They're both so soft & yummy that I keep petting them. Now the fun begins - getting some nice prints & making some squishy new dipes for my ds!

that's so fun! i love the organic cotton fleece. i am dying to get my hands on some oc french terry and some of the short pile oc velour. i have some of the long pile and it is soooo luscious, but it's a little bit like a cake that's too rich. for your first couple of bites you're in heaven, but then you realize it's just a little too much. :LOL:<br><br>
today, i got some really cool bright blue/green/purple snake woven fabric that i drooled over when karen (i think that was her name) had some at the berry patch, back when i bought diapers. it's in the wash now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Uh-oh - don't start this addiction! You're going to have to become a diaper sewing WAHM soon in order to justify your stash (ask me how I know) :LOL<br><br>
Short velour is a fairly new fabric, there are shortages quite often because as soon as the mill finishes up a run of yardage and delivers it to the distributor it sells out immediately. I had to pre-order my last roll, and when it finally arrived it was already sold out again. Think I'm going to have to pre-order right away this time!<br><br>
Long OV is awesome too, I think it gets a bad rap because it's a little harder to sew with, and it's not what you would think of when you imagine 'velour' But I LOVE it for diaper inners as long as the soakers are topped with short OV.<br><br>
And the wool --- love it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
