I never washed any of my microfiber more than once. :? I don't have any CB's, but I'd think they would be the same as any other.

I read on another board that they are staggering when they clearance. Lol. Mine just got them too. I think it's for new prints or colors orsomething. Some ladies said they did this last year too. :)

UGH, I'm so mad at myself... I just bought 2yrds of stay dry fabric from Babyville's line at JoAnns, thinking it'd be best to use as an inner since it keeps wetness from the baby's skin... but durrrr, I'm using a snap in liner! Argh, pregnancy brain I hate you. Maybe I'll have to just do sewn inbetween liners. Grr. So mad at myself. T_T

I found a bunch of stay dry shirts I'm using lol. I've done some pockets but I made some pads for myself where it's just on the layer between me and the inner fabric. I'd assume you could do that on a snap in soaker as well. Put the stay dry fabric around the insert to keep it dry. It might actually help because when Scarlytt was a nb she peed so much and her pee was so acidic she got an awful rash twice in the first two months :( as soon as she fit in pockets with the micro suede to keep her drier it went away. I have to alternate my AI2 and pockets frequently for that reason. If she wears all AI2s all the time it comes back. So maybe you can avoid that issue by putting the stay dry fabric on the side that's on baby's bottom?

Good idea! Thanks for the suggestion. I wish my brain would work haha. The heat plus lack of sleep plus pregnancy brain... it's a wonder I'm still alive lol

Finally busted out the sewing machine. I set out with the intention of making a larger fitted diaper and I made a pattern from a large fuzzibunz. Well, it turned out kinda on the huge side, but hopefully I can squeeze it under a cover. :P



Next up, wipes, wipes, and more wipes!!



I have a ton of jersey knit and fleece and no clue what to do with it? Any ideas?

Hybrid fitteds. Fleece covers. Stuffed animals!

Does this look like its on the right rise and all that? I haven't cloth'd since he was too tiny for these and I think we completely skipped the first rise setting, BUT in the alvas he's still in the first rise? idk.

Looks fine to me. As long as he is comfortable and you aren't getting leaks it should be good! :)

I just pinned a tutorial on fleece covers the other day. I've never used one, but I might try it out.



I want to make a wrap, but I don't have quite enough full yardage for one. I think I may buy some just for that purpose this weekend, though.

I thought about stuffed animals! lol. I've only ever made one and it is the weirdest looking thing, but DD loves it. It's like a bunny type critter and it has button eyes and no mouth. :P

Care to share? I have a cover pattern/tutorial but it doesn't look like it's be good for a newborn so I gotta find another one.

Like what does the tutorial say :? I didn't know I needed to do anything special lol



And if you're buying material for a wrap I'd just do an osnaburg wrap instead.
