Cloth diaper

Here is a close up of the cute diapers I am making.  I started with the Babyvile Boutique pattern.  Diaper really didn't fit just right.  I used there velcro.  Not a big fan, it shredded, and we had a lot of problems getting them to stay closed.  Also, added about $1.50 to the cost of diapers.  Yikes.  I shortned the diaper, that took care of most of the leaking problem.  I also switched to Sewology velcro.  Love it, stays hooked even in washer.  Lasts, and lasts.  And best of all I got it half price, so it only adds about 20 cents to a diaper.  I also redesigned how the velcro was attached.  These look more like the G diapers everyone loves.  Mommy is much happier with these.

Small Finish

I like this edging a lot.  Love the purple.  Fixing to give this as a gift.  Love having made presents in the gift box.  What kind of gifts do you like to make ahead of time.

Small Finishes

My daughter and I are making these cute little blankets together.  I buy a yard of fleece, cut it down the fold, then I punch the holes around one both.  I get one, and she gets the other one.  When finished we have a cute little blanket all ready for when we need a gift.  More on how I punch the holes later.

Fleece blankets.

Here's a little pile I made for Christmas.  Cute, super easy, and everyone seems to always need just one more fleece blanket.  A lot of these go to dog owners for their puppies.

Block a day

 Chain sewing, working on a block each day.  Does everyone else's desk look so messy when they sew?

Block a day - Goals

 I have been reading about groups that are making a list of what they want to do each month.  February will be my ironing month for blocks.  So I am trying to finish up small blocks, potholders, and blanket tops that I can pop in a good movie and iron for hours.

I am still working on a block a day.  So I will have quite a bit to iron
