|The first one I made is on the left...it's a bit bigger.|
I knew there would be a learning curve working with new materials, so I expected the first diaper to turn out not so great...which is exactly how it turned out. I think with a little tweaking it will be a great diaper for later this year or next year, so it wasn't a complete waste! The second diaper I basted the layers together before adding the elastic, and that helped quite a bit!
|Layers carefully basted so they don't shift while sewing on the elastic.|
I'll probably use this pattern again to make some pull-up diapers once we're ready for them. It was so easy to make these!
|He loves wearing them!|
I've also been working on making some sheets for the Peapod travel tent we just got.
|I've been winging it...which means a lot of trial and error.|
I was hoping elastic would work, but the sheet wasn't cut large enough:
|It just slips off...the next sheet will have extra fabric so this will work.|
Next I plan to try velcro. I hope it works, this small, simple project is taking up a lot of time.
