If I remember right, the ooga print was from the yahoo coop group Sew It Seams (used to be This End Up).
I have some pink flowery print and green monkey print from JoAnn Fabrics, and an owl print from somewhere that I'm gonna make up too. (But I'm not very quick!)
I <3 owls!! Can wait to see that one

Re: I finally made an OS AIO!

Awesome! Looks great mama!

Do you mind if i ask a few questions? I'd like to make some aio's, but i've never owned one. i see you use pul at the front and back to prevent wicking, but what is the center part (under your insert)? Is that cotton too? And if so, how do you prevent wicking at the legs? Thanks!!

Eta ... My machine skips stitches when the needle gets dull, is that a possibility

Me too! It's so convenient to be able to pick up PUL locally (even though I'm still trying out their PUL for the first time in the last month or so).

Sure, no problem! =) Yes, on the inside, that is PUL on the top front and top back. The center part is all 100% cotton (for that dipe it was birdseye). When the dipe is on the baby, ya just make sure that the cotton inner is all folded in (not exactly sure how to describe it). The leg elastic is sewn to the PUL side of the fabric, so it tends to fold in towards the cotton. So, when on the baby, you only can see PUL (you can't see the cotton from the outside). Thus, the seams would also be towards the inside of the diaper. I'll try to get a picture of it on DD soon to show that better.

skipping stitches....Yess, when I was trying out sewing with FOE, I tried a bjillion different needles and ideas. Cleaning out the bobbin area, oiling, taking apart bobin area & cleaning, tension stuff, different sizes sharp needles, different sizes ball point needles, etc, etc. Eventually just went with the needle that skipped the fewest stitches.

I've been sewing for years and years as my mom taught us when we were young. I actually remember making an outfit in first grade. But, besides the home-ec sewing classes in 8th or 9th grade or whatever, it hasn't been any "professional" learning. I know I still need to learn more about needle types and fabric types and how they interact, etc, etc. And the 'real' names for machine parts, etc. Someday maybe...

Re: I finally made an OS AIO!

It looks great! When you say your stitches skip on the seams, is it when you are doing the topstitching? I found using a size 9 (65) needle and turning my tension up really helps.
