Ok, So I've been sewing like crazy getting ready for this 'Thanksgiving' Due date baby!<br><br>
I finally got my newborn covers and a 'Chloe Toes' stash of 8 (only 7 in the picture) in Newborn size! I ran out of white FOE, so used some pink and black with a lavendar PUL/Lavendar MM microfleece. I just stuffed them with birdseye cloth (washed about 10 times to soften and fluff up) folded into a long rectangle. Fits just right!<br><br>
I have a few more covers, but these are my favorites!<br><br>
Here is the link, hope it works!<br><br><a href="http://weblife.earthlink.net/photo/PhotoAlbumView?AID=jvzqnwxm::LO:a6g3" target="_blank">http://weblife.earthlink.net/photo/P...qnwxm::LO:a6g3</a>

You did a great job! I like the color choices. They are adorable. I just made my first Chloe Toes pocket the other day and LOVE that pattern. Good luck diapering that sweet new babe!<br><br>

The purple fleece and the charcoal gray covers are made with the Chloe Toes freebie cover pattern (newborn size). I actually made the crotch slightly narrower also for a super trim NB fit. The purple microfleece diaper with side snaps will fit just right in the purple cover. It's almost like a bikini fit! It is lined in flannel with a two layer BKT hidden soaker.<br><br>
The tan, 300 wt polar fleece aplix cover is the 'New Conceptions' Deluxe Diaper pattern, the 'Quick Wrap with Gussets' one.<br><br>
I've also made a few double sided PUL wraps from the 'side snap' version of the New Conceptions pattern. I just haven't taken pics of them yet. They will be closer to a 'small' and for use over flat folds after the cord falls off and heals well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm also making up some 'pseudo' Fuzzi Bunz/Swaddelbees type ones now, in small, that are still trim, but for post NB size. I just had some extra fleece and didn't want to sit there staring at it..hehe..<br><br>
I need to take a pic of the moses basket liner I did. It's very fitted to the basket, and made of bamboo velour...SO soft! Nothing scratchy to touch baby! I made matching bamboo velour receiving blankets too...now I want a blanket for MY bed!<br><br>
Thank you for the compliments...I was obsessing over getting these NB diapers finished, as I didn't want to buy NB sposies for the first few days!

Hey, you can do it...just takes some practice!<br><br>
Hehe, I should have taken a pic of the first 'FOE' trial diapers...I was HORRIBLE using it. By the third diaper, I got the hang of it, and then they turned out pretty good! (Glad I used my 'off' fabric for the first few trials).<br><br>
I am doing PP pads atm...I also made some more 'smalls'. They are T&T, white PUL with a black micro fleece inner. Kinda 'tux' looking..haha They were 'scrap' to use up.<br><br>
My goal is to make diapers like the one mom that does 'applications' on the diapers. I saw her link (can't remember name) and was like OMG those are georgeous!!<br><br>
I will take pics with baby in diapers when time comes (that could be very soon...) I'm 80% effaced and 3-4 cm atm..and baby really isn't due until the 23rd...but things seem to be progressing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
