My latest sewing gigs
Here's my first homeade diaper. It's so soft, made of microfleece. Unfortunately it's not terribly absorbant so I can't let him wear it too long. I've made a few since then that have turned out better. I used hemp jersey as the inner layer and cotton flannel for the outer layer. I even made my first diaper cover this weekend that the kids really like. It's blue instead of boring old white. The pattern is called poo-pockets which my children find totally hysterical.
The hat I made today during naptime. Dylan picked out the fabric and said that tigger was so appropriate for him. I agree. He wore it for a long time without trying to take it off which was a real accomplishment. He's so fair that he definitely needs a hat in the sun.
The next things on my list are matching sleepers for Liam and Gavin (the probable name of our newest son), a dress for Taylor, and a maternity outfit for me. Then I'll be sewing newborn diapers like mad and teaching two sewing classes. I'm glad my hobby is so useful.
