For the last several weeks, I haven’t sewn much of anything. But I’ve been working on some major changes in my life, and the one major change I’ve made is freeing up quite a bit of time for me to actually sew (and clean, and spend time with my family, it’s amazing!). I had an order for some diaper covers for a friend that I finally got sewn up. And the other project I’m working on I don’t know if I can blog about yet, so I’ll keep it under wraps for now!
I don’t think I’ve talked about cloth diapering much here, we TRY and be a cloth family most of the time (lately that’s a major fail though, shhhh). When I started making them for my kiddos, I kinda fell in to sewing them for others as well. I’m a licensed seamstress for Trimsies, which are my favorites-although I definitely don’t claim to be any sort of an expert!
So anyway, since I have actually been sewing a bit, I thought I’d go ahead and participate in this weeks I Made It Thursday from Everything Etsy.
All of these covers are a cotton woven outer, with the inner layer being made of PUL-a fabric laminated with waterproof material. I bind them in FOE (and we know how much I love FOE already right?), and then use snaps for the closures. Funnily enough, the whole pile of ones I had cut out already (plus the couple more I cut out for my friend) contained all sizes so you see small, medium and large laid out here. I didn’t really intend to use a bright red velvet background, but it certainly snaps things up a bit don’t you think?
As you can see, I hadn’t put the snaps on these yet, this was just a quickie pic. I just love cloth diapers, you can’t beat this amount of cute on your kids booty! So anyway, that’s what I made this week!
Tomorrow I’m going to start talking about the new blog series I’m starting up for all of us small craft business owners, so be sure to pop back in for that!
