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.

y'know, now that I'm thinking of it, I think I still have the leftover fabric from the wrap I made for my niece. It's girly, but I mean... Who cares? lol. I need to go closet diving!

So a fleece soaker works just like a cover, right? Can you put it just over a fitted? What about wool?
