Every Little Boys Needs a Star Wars Diaper

I think this is my favorite diaper I've ever sewn. I just like everything about it. :-)

It's a pocket fitted from the VB AIO pattern. The outer is flannel, and the inner is two layers of birdseye. Love the birdseye!

The front pocket is so easy to sew. I think I may add a little flap of some kind next time to encourage the insert to stay put:

And since my new sewing machine has an alphabet function, I stitched in a little something to help me remember this diaper is a size medium long:

Etsy Cloth Diaper Team Promotion!

Mark your calendars for our big Earth Day Promotion on APRIL 18! Full details will be posted on the Etsy Cloth Diaper Street Team blog very soon, but essentially each participating shop will have one promotional item (it will be marked clearly if you open the listing). The person who purchases that item will win a free gift with it--free gifts so far range from hand knit booties to bum balm to velour wipes to whole diapers! Every store is offering something different, so it's worth taking the time to look through them! A full list of participating stores will be posted on the blog along with a list of the free gifts. Please, spread the word!!

Just in Time for Summer

I finally finished the BBO mei tai I've had cut out forever. I love it! I put T in it and walked around the yard for a while, and it felt pretty good. Then I put it on again to show hubby when he got home, and it felt even better. I think I tied it just a bit diferently, and it felt more secure and the weight was distributed better.

Here it is in all it's rumpled glory (I couldn't get a decent shot of it all spread out, and this actually shows the fabric better.)

Just in time for summer trips to the zoo and hiking. Hope it works for hiking! We shall see . . .

More Sewing for T--Birthday Outfit

That's right--a birthday outfit! I can't believe my baby boy is two!

(Pardon the little stray thread on the front of the shirt--I just noticed it as I was posting.)

The shirt is from Kwik Sew's Sewing for Toddlers, and the pants are from Kwik Sew pattern no. 2858.

I still need to hem the bottom of the shirt (it's currently just serged with white thread ), but my regular sewing machine is out of commission, so I'll just have to wait until my new one arrives. (Oh yes, I'm getting a new sewing machine! I'm over the moon excited!)

I see lots more of these little t-shirts in our future--especially since knits come in 60" wide pieces.

Thanks for looking!
