back to basics~~~ monday mayhem

we are basic folks. we chat about lots of stuff and are a friendly bunch. we mostly use pfs, wool and cheap stuff. so if you want to stop in and say hi, we welcome you.

they girls went to bed late, so shouldnt they have slept in??? oh well, at least that means a good nap.

wotb. a plain ubpf w a wine soaker(the only one that fits right now)

so guess whats on my agenda today.....
making soakers!!! i dont have one to even air out right now. one soaker, several shorties (not shortie weather) and longies.

And I only get 100% wool ones, because I could never remember which ones are not otherwise. If I was open to blends or cashmere, acrylics I could have even more to choose from. I have just as many soakers and half a dozen hats too.

I've got a small stack of summer weight sweaters I need to make longies, shorties, and soakers out of too. I love to use the super thin silky merino wool sweaters for this. I probably get asked the most about this one, which uses the same kind of sweater:

The wool is literally as thin as a tshirt and works beautifully as summer weight with a thick diaper, or under any longies that would otherwise not be nightworthy or carseatworthy.

So ladies, if you can sew at all or know someone who can, stuff like this can be yours inexpensively
yes thats beautiful - put me inline cherly for manpris for the summer out of that kind of wool- nb sized

Obviously this was not for my son, it was for someone else's DD in a trade. One of the first skirtypants I did, so I didn't know you are supposed to put elastic in them (oops). But it looks expensive, right? Only because of the sweater.

CEEEUTE!

Are gmd browns and reds pretty similar in size? I know I posted this pic yesterday in the weekend thread, but our babies are kinda close in size but wearing browns and reds...

What fold are you using? This is the jelly roll:

I'm sitting here sipping my tea and eating cooking, trying to make myself feel better. Maybe a little jaunt in the fresh air will do it. It should be fun to play with E and DP outside in a little bit.

I personally love the longies, soakers and shorties from Bellies, Babies n' More on Hyenacart. Great fleece and really reasonable prices, I think. And the crescent butt makes the fit great over fluffy bums.
