Sewing

I’m really starting to enjoy sewing. It started with me wanting to cloth diaper. I bought some prefolds when my husband and I were expecting through adoption but I knew after 3-6 month’s I’d want to start using AIO’s or pockets. So I bought the Jalie Pattern and started sewing.

and this is when you turn the diaper inside out. This makes drying easier

After sewing a few of those I decided I wanted to try making some AIO OS (all in one, one size) so using the sprout snap pattern I made these:

I also decided I wanted to use cloth wipes too. These are super easy to make. They would be even easier if I could get my serger to work!

I’ve recently started using the fatty cakes pattern: very easy to use once I got a picture tutorial.

I have to get more material in order to keep making diapers so in the mean time I decided to try making pillow case dresses. They aren’t actually made out of pillow cases any more but they easily could be..

This one was made out of an old skirt I had:

this one I made from some left over material that I had. This one is my favorite!

I have also made some fleece covers recently. They are really easy and fun to make: They  are used as a water proof cover. YOu can put them over prefolds or fitted diapers.

I didn’t get to sew today. It just didn’t work out. I tried but first my serger stopped serging. Then I spilled all my needles on the floor. Then when I started sewing more fleece covers I couldn’t get them sewn right. After that my bobbin ran out of thread so I called it quits. I did manage to finish sewing one but I probably won’t be able to sew again till next week. I start working full time next week so I will do the majority of my sewing on the weekend.
