First, here is a close-up of my new toy:
A vintage thread spool holder that I scored at a thrift store. It is my new favorite, after my sewing machine and scissors. :)
And here is what I have been working on:
Making afew of my own all-in-one cloth diapers for when little one comes!
This one is almost done. It just needs a visit to my wonderful friend's house who has kindly offered to help me surge outside edges.
The best part is, the inside absorbent fabric, (under the flannel,) is from my 6 year-old's old pre-folds that he used for awhile. We used the old Gerber style cloth diapers and pins with him for a time because it was the best we could buy back then. I am so excited to have the time and know-how this time to make and buy some things that will make cloth diapering more comfortable for all of us this time around.
I will have more to show as progress moves along and as I get more creative with recycled fabrics. (Terrycloth inserts, anyone?) :)
