Okay, this is my 4th job pinning and it is getting better but how the heck do I get the legs tight? I have tried many different folds but cannot seem to do it! How does this pinning job look to you? Thanks for any help you guys can give me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/v166/mommysjoy5/pinning/" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/v166/mommysjoy5/pinning/</a>

Looks good, the more you use pins the better you will become just keep at it and don't give up. I find the bikini twist gives me the best fit around the legs. (but hard to do with embillished pf's) Just pull tight and pin.

Looks good to me. Always make sure when you are getting ready to pin to pull the fabric tighter than you want it because it will have some give after you are done. I also roll the legs in to get a snugger fit. Besides that it is just one of those things that gets easier and better with time.

good job mama, I LOVE pinning. And sicne we go coverless alot, snappies dont work. Emma gets stuck on the couch litterally with a snappi. If oyu keep your pins in a bar of soap they will go thru the fabric easier which is great when you are trying to get the tightest fit. I agree with roll the dipe in around the legs. I usually fold the dipe in 3rds, so it is just as thin as the center of hte PF and then I pul a bit out on the back and then the front but just enough to pin it,and I always pull it tighter than i need. HUbby has yet to figure this out. either that or it is a great ploy to NOt change diapers. But never fer. I made AIOS just for him LOL<br><br>
I also wanted to say LOOK AT THOS THIGHS!!! can I chew on them?? I have such skinny babes, and I am jealous of those thighs :LOL
