I win for the ugliest little soaker ever!

So I tried my hand at sewing a soaker with a recycled sweater or two. This has got to be the ugliest (my sewing, not the actual fabric) little soaker in the world, LOL. I hope it fits. I'll try it on DD when she wakes up. If it does fit, I'll try to get an action shot.

Now, it's not that bad! Especially for your first one! Action pics are always better, too; it always looks better on! At least, I told myself that with my first shorties...

You are just being kind! But you were right about it looking cuter on. Here are the pics.

Hey, it fits that's what counts.
I still have my recycled soaker to be sitting in pieces next to my sewing machine.
What needle did you use? I can't get mine to fit under my sewing foot thingie so was planning on sewing it together by hand.

I think it looks great! You should see the soaker I just made. It's really funny looking. I don't think I could get rid of it ffs.
