I'm the same way. It sticks to me cause my fingertips get dry sometimes. And it feels weird. And then when I stuff it they twist on me or bunch up weird. I just hate it. The crappy part is AI2s aren't as "dry" on baby's skin. But it works better for us. And now Scarlytts butt is clear and we have no issues. I think it was either the coconut oil or an adjustment period to cloth. Or maybe using vinegar in the wash and tto in the wipes has helped. Idk.

I'm ridiculous :oops: I'm so excited I've been telling anyone around be that will listen about the cheap wet bags in Moses' co op. I'm so excited.




Oh and I stuff everything at once. It's easier for me since I'm a working momma to have everything ready to go for the diaper bag and for my hubs. He will put them on the kid but not wash or stuff.

I am excited too. I am using mine for pool bags :) And I did as well. I'd sit down with my favorite show and stuff diapers once a week :)

I think I might add one more....



Will you run these again?



Yeah I hate folding laundry of any kind. Much easier to sit down and stuff every 5-7 days.

IDK I just did these on a whim lol. For how cheap they are, most likely. I NEED to get other things run though. I need to get the Easter buy closed. And I want to open another my little legs, they just got new swaddle blanket prints. I am trying to stick with as much local, US companies as possible. I want to run green virgin soon too. So much, so little time lol.

Lol, hey, neither do I. And I just ordered some on the last one. But they are soooo soft, and huge and Adrien loves them. I bought 2 A&A ones with the intentions of putting them up and Adrien found them. And well, there was no taking them away lol. So they are his for now lol

Quoting ~The Lunar Flower~:" Quick question. When making your own flats out of receiving blankets, what measurements do you use?"



I used receiving blankets once, but I didn't cut them. They were the small ones. I know I've seen huge ones people cut up on youtube but I have never seen one that big in person. Where do you find them that big?



If it's for a smaller baby I would just use a standard size one as is.

Here you go, Rachel!



These are the two t-shirt ones I made. Hope you can see these ok, my flash was sorta bright.

In case you decide to use a shirt instead of actual material, I used one extra large shirt for each and it was enough for a newborn size. They had kind of v-necks, but if you used a regular t-shirt and cut it long ways you could probably get a bigger sized diaper out of it.



I also got some more fleece today! I made two blue ones and have material for two green and probably 4 of this pretty blue, green, and purple tye dye. :) I only sewed the blue, but here are those.

I've got six so far and they all look different even though they are cut from the same pattern. I've been looking up ways to improve my seam allowances.

On another note, what do you ladies use in your wipe solution?

you did great!! i have noooo crafty talent at all lol! :oops:



for wipe solution i use a baby wash with all natural ingredients & essential oils - a couple of drops of that mixed in water & poured over wipes.
