Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I am goiing to learn how to knit this time! I already have some recycled covers that are GN. I will make more for DD and the new baby. Kinda hopiing DD is close to PT soon after the baby. I've never had more than one in diapers for more than 6 months.

I will make a few big blankets and lots of hair pretties if it's a girl. I will also make tie dye shirts to match longies!

Most of my craftiness is edible. I could make myself a beautiful baby shower cake, but that's not terribly practical.

Here are a couple pictures.

The big one had 2 on the green poles and 1 on the short blue poles. The little one had only 1 on each yellow pole. It was easy, I just wished I glued them in. I will probably do that eventually.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I'll be sewing lots of baby clothes, making more bows(if it's a girl), and I would love to learn to sew either some fitted diapers or some prefolds. All you mamas that make diapers, what pattern do you use? and what fabrics? I need barney-style instructions

That was me too. There are lots of free patterns, but I used the ladida pattern that I had to pay for. I think it was like $8. It gives a lot of suggestions and walks you through fitteds, covers, pockets, AIO, and AI2's. It also just has a bunch of things I would have never thought about for tips and tricks when doing diapers. I am a fan of how trim and low cut it is. My kids are pretty skinny though, so not sure what it does on chunky babies. I love using bamboo for my diapers. I have done bamboo velour, bamboo terry, and bamboo flannel. It is just so soft and doesn't seem to pick up the smells that my microfiber does.

One of my friends that makes A LOT...and sells them...uses the trimsies pattern and really likes that one. I would just start googling and see what you like the look of. There are so many great ones out there.

Re: Crafty April Mommies?

I can't wait to start, but with my nervousness about this baby "sticking" I am putting on the brakes for just a bit.
I wanna make a blanket, clothes, and hairbows - if it's a girl...


Just have to wait and see.
