a first-time sewer's NB fitted stash!

I bought and used a sewing machine for the first time just before Christmas... all with the intention of making some fitteds for our baby due in April...
I watched a million youtube videos before trying, practiced running stiches on scrap fabric to get the hang of it.. and then cut up my old flannel recieving blankets and made some practice diapers... here are a couple of those
(I made about five, each time fixing a mistake I made the previous time...)



When i felt confident that I'd gotten all the trickiest parts figured out I dove into the OBV... nervously...

I used the darling diapers pattern... a bit modified, and had dyed up some OBV in preparation for these diapers.

Here are the 3 different colors of OBV outer/inner (DH isn't too keen on the "purple" for our boy )



The rest are flannel outer with OBV inner:






The whole stash together (22)



Thanks for looking!

Awesome! Tell your DH it's not purple, it's maroon like Southern Illinois University, Minnesota, Miss State, TX A&M, etc. (And if any of those teams are rivals..well..it's a diaper!)
