I am pretty sure most people do this.
Oh, you mean washing fabrics before sewing... I thought you meant something different? Lol. Yes, I do that. Made that mistake only once because the diaper shank a size after washing. Fortunately, I can use it now on my newbie, so all's not lost.

Got some more "donated" material from the hubby, even one with very impressive stripes! Was able to cut out six large and one medium outers and pin two sets of inners/outers together tonight. Not bad for what I usually get done. I'm hoping to get them sewn together after the holiday.

Anyone else get anything done lately?

Re: Fitted Sew-A-Long

Thanks.

The problem is I work on so many at once, that they stay partially done for a long time then all come together at once!

I'm curious about the legs on those - do they work well against leaks? They look like they're loose or is it meant to be that way?

It's because it's just the shell and the doublers are out.
