Yes! If I didn't have so much fabric sitting at home sometimes I think about just caving and buying. But they r just for catching waste...after all I have to remind myself of that.

Re: Fitted Sew-A-Long

Thanks. I'm getting a bunch of cute fabrics on Tuesday, and then I will start to really sew some up. I just need to pick a serger thread and go with it. Wooly nylon and polyester need very different settings and I just need to keep the machine at one setting!

Oh man. Finished my first diaper. Elastic is going to be the death of me. It's very wonky but I have to remember this is my first diaper. Please let Serging be easier.
