(I was going to share this post sooner, but it got preempted.) Miss Moppet just recently received some lovely gifts that I want to share! This knitted bag came from a dear friend, Christina, in Alabama. I'm going to use it for a diaper bag. NO ONE will have one like it. (c; Notice the … Continue reading Baby Gifts
Preemie Cloth Diapers
Today I was trying to decide what to do with a stack of old washcloths and realized that if cut in half and then folded in half lengthwise, they would make good centers for preemie diapers. After receiving those adorable preemie diaper covers, I figured out that my smallest prefolds were too long for them. … Continue reading Preemie Cloth Diapers
Baby Stuff Updates
25 weeks today! Yay! 🙂 I have an appointment with ultrasound in 2 weeks and I hope nothing happens before then. (Nothing should.) I made some diaper covers/soakers out of an old fleece jacket that wasn't otherwise salvageable. They're small but will be good for a newborn. Out of some of the scrap I cut … Continue reading Baby Stuff Updates
Yarn Along: Some finished items
I finished the first of two sleep sacks for my sister's twins. 🙂 I'm pleased with how it turned out. I've started on the next one and hope it will go quicker this time since I'm not feeling my way along. (I took notes so I could replicate it exactly.) I'm getting better at side … Continue reading Yarn Along: Some finished items
This was a bit of an experiment because I knew I wasn't necessarily going to get the right size. One pattern (the fitted style) was "one size fits most" which looked huge so I made my own pattern based on it (but kept the original - I do expect baby to grow!). In general I … Continue reading First Covers…
Prefolds are easy!
I saw some photos of preemies wearing cloth diapers online. That's when I decided I'd better make some smaller ones. Yesterday at the thrift store I saw some faded flannel receiving blankets...marked $2 each!! Outrageous! I told the lady there that they were WAY overpriced and she let me have them for a quarter apiece. … Continue reading Prefolds are easy!
Tutorial: Replacing the elastic in Kushies All-in-One Diapers
When I dragged the diapers out of the attic I realized that I was right to worry about the elastic. It was shot. *sigh* I looked for some tutorials online to help replace the elastic in AIO diapers* and found what I thought was the perfect tutorial. The only problem was, I discovered that the … Continue reading Tutorial: Replacing the elastic in Kushies All-in-One Diapers
20 Weeks plus Diapers
I'm 20 weeks today! Very exciting milestone. Considering I'll only just barely get to term in the best case scenario that means I'm more than half-done. Yay! After going through what I had in the way of diapers I realized I needed more smalls. It seemed like a reasonable thing to try making my own … Continue reading 20 Weeks plus Diapers
I went out on a huge limb this morning and got down three totes full of baby things from the attic. I also got a large bag of diapers down. After going through the boxes I put two back in the attic and kept one out of things we would be likely to use right … Continue reading Baby Doings
I love turning something into something else. That doesn't necessarily mean clothing. Over the years I've found some of the niftiest repurposing tutorials ever. Some of them people have sent me and some I've just stumbled upon. I decided they were too fun not to share. This Shirt Skirt Tutorial has got to be one … Continue reading Repurposing Tutorials
