Mycah's New Shorts

I whipped up these shorts this morning for Mycah. I bought extra of this fabric so I could make these shorts and not only just a diaper. Mycah loves planes and helicopters.

I am also working on a quilt pattern for one of the baby gifts I am making. It is a very simple design and I am hoping to get the fabric picked out for it Friday.

Fitted Diaper

Well, here is my latest diaper using my real materials. This is a newborn fitted diaper. I used flannel for the outside and alova suede for the inside and the soaker is made from microfiber. The only thing left that I need to do is put the snaps on the flaps. This diaper is so cute and soft!

Second Fitted Diaper Attempt

Ok, this is my second diaper attempt. This one came out really good. Yes, I know the fabrics don't match but I'm still in the process of using scraps for practicing. The inside of this diaper is flannel and the outside is fleece, size newborn. Christi was kind enough to bring me the correct size elastic and some better touch tape.

Hamburger Buns!

Well, today I made hamburger buns from scratch. They're not perfect as far as their shape goes, but they do taste good! Christi was here when they came out of the oven so she got to taste one and thought they were good too. I ground up the flour for these in my new nutrimill grain mill. These were alot of fun to make, and I just love the health benifits of grinding my own flour. A few more times making these and I should have them perfected :)

First Fitted Diaper Attempt

Well, I made my first diaper today. For this diaper I used cheap flannel from Walmart for my practicing. I can't wait to start using my real materials for my diapers....and to find out what sex our next baby will be so I can start making gender specific diapers.
This diaper came out good. There are a few things that I need to fix for in the future though. I used velcro for this diaper, but my future ones will have snaps on them. All in all I think it was a great first try :)

Saoker # 5

Ok, this is just like the other soaker I made. Karina wanted two of these kind. One to dye and the other to leave natural. Anyways, all of the soakers I have made to date (minus my first) I am leaving here with Karina for her baby.
