My new mama cloth stash, OBV, Swirl dye, & Minky
 
I've been needing to get more mama cloth for oh, a year and a half now. I just keep putting it off. Well, I finally got fed up with having to wash every evening so I had enough to take to work with me the next day. So I spent some time this weekend getting these sewn up. I did the swirl dyeing on the OBV myself a few months ago. I made a total of 16 pads, 8 regular and 8 liners.

The green dot one in here is Minky and the white liner is as well. I really prefer natural fibers but I've been curious why everyone loves minky so I'm trying out one of each size. The rest are OBV I dyed.

I haven't sewn anything in a while and it was fun to finally have something done and something to share.

pattern? I had a bunch of patterns when I made my first batch a couple of years ago. I combined the parts I liked from them and came up with this. There are TONS of patterns out there, but it's honestly pretty easy to just trace out your own. Not really sure which pattern this is most like at this point.

Is that flower fleece you used on the bottom? It is so pretty!

Honestly, I'm not sure what the fleece on the bottom was. It did have flowers on it. But it was off the 75% off rack at Joannes. I was trying to use up scraps and such.

Is it one or two layers of fleece for your bottoms? I only used one layer and my snaps pulled through :(

It's one layer and I've had no problems with it. The batch I made a year and a half ago were the same flower fleece and they are all still going strong, but it is a thinner fleece. The purple/gray fleece is a malden mills windpro diaper making fleece and that is thick stuff so it's no surprise to me that one layer is plenty.
