Bean #2's *almost* all mama made stash SUPER crazy pic heavy

And almost done ...

Fitteds - 18 mama made, 3 velour T&T NB by little fancy pants (bottom right)



Mama made fitteds have 2 inserts, one removable with fold down rise, no umbilical snap, but a friend used a set i made and they fit well below the cord. Best guess is they would fit as small as 5ish lbs (fit well on DD's cabbage patch )



Pockets - nb/sm size. Hoping these will fit at birth, but not sure. 18 total (black, brown, red, yellow and wild child - animals are apple cheeks). Currently stuffed with infant prefolds, but likely way overkill on absorbancy and bulky, not sure what the final choice in these will be.



Nb/small covers


Haven't decided on velcro or snaps for blue yet. Also have 2 thirsties size 1 and one blueberry mini. Will likely make 3-4 more of these

Also have 18 flats, 6 osycozy perfect fit prefolds and a ton of bamboo and hemp inserts for pad folding and stuffing.

Longies and clothes - NB size (sewn and knit by me, except the one gerber shirt that i added sleeves to)


Meadowlark cw (by nurturing threads)






Ashby cw by Julibeans (will have hat and mittens and prob be coming home outfit)




I have a cw that matches this - blue steele by Julibeans


Have brown alpaca longies half done to make these a set.


Gowns ... Carebears was an old shirt


Breast pads, receiving blankets, wipes, "babylegs"

Whew! I have 3 more pockets palanned (waiting for pul to arrive) and think i NEED to call it quits. Lol. I'm afraid soon i'll have more than i'll ever use

To be honest it was way easier to make the shirts from scratch (i did trace the gerber shirt ) than it was to add those itty bitty sleeves lol. Hence only one. For someone handsewing it may be MUCH easier, but machine was hard! Oh how i those little shirts tho! I could stare at them all day.

A frankenstine one. i started out with the bigger darling diaper free nb pattern, meged it with the smaller DD pattern, and then combined it with some parts from other dipes i liked. Started out with a free pattern and over the process of a few dipes, tweeked it a bit.

Eta: the above was for fitteds. And my friend came up with the soaker configuration (i made the first set for her, so i just did what she wanted for soakers). The pockets are the same pattern with elastic in the front (i love the front elastic in the amp/applecheeks)
