Creative Ramblings of One Crunchy Mama
For FROGGIES of course!!
I’ve been sewing a lot of diapers so far this week and I have posted all my work over on CafeMom to share with all the other cloth diaperin’ mammas.. can you believe someone actually had the nerve to tell me they thought I was just trying to toot my own horn! How Rude!
Anyway, I always try to share most of my sewing projects over here too because I KNOW there are other sewers lurking here on Xanga!
So this morning I went rummaging under my son’s crib looking for flannel. Having two in diapers has forced me to make more wipes. (I stored most of my fabric under his crib because I had to put my sewing table and shelves into storage to fit the second crib) And I was pleasantly surprised when I found a walmart bag tucked into the scrap box. Inside I found 6 yards of really cute boyish flannel – that I apparently already washed! I made a pile of wipes and 6 fitteds (one of each print) but here is my fav:
I was never a fan of fitteds but I’ve found them to be much more convenient then prefolds on my son.. there really is a difference in diapering boys and girls. The soaker is sewn in on these and consists of 2 layers microterry, 2 layers flannel and 2 layers birdseye (basically this was a compilation of the miscellaneous absorbent materials I found in the scrap box that I distributed evenly to the 6 dipes.. haha). It is turned and topstitched, but I did not topstitch the leg elastic. I used my PUL cover pattern for this and extended and squared off the wings. I did not add snaps or aplix because the weave on the flannel I found is thick and loose – perfect for a snappi. These things fit my newborns tiny butt perfectly.. and honestly, how adorable are those froggies? I love it!
