Wow! Maybe you're starting a new trend! At least they won't show the dirt!

hehe whatever covers the stains!!! you could always add some cute bright paints to the bum now and they'd be beautiful! i'd buy a black pf with something bright painted or stamped on the bum, i'm sure lots of mama's would! some bright greens, reds, pinks (for girls)...pretty pretty!

I like them.. they don't look black to me though, the look deep purple, which is even better.
I have done the same thing before (not with diapers) baby clothes, or even my clothes that have become stained. At least you can still wear them and they dont look like you have been wearing them for 3 days.

I think it's fun! I'd probably paint on them too.

How about a neon orange diaper cover, you'd be all set for Halloween!

Hmmm, I would worry that the dye would rub off on their bums....? does it rub off? If it doesnt rub off, I might get brave and try it w/ some of ours! AND the onesie thing is a GREAT IDEA too- as long as it doesnt rub off....

I'm not sure I could hand piant a dipe, so what I would do is go buy a pre-made embriodered applique and hand sew it on the bum area- I actually bought some myself the other day to try this... They sell them at Walmart, Hobby Lobby, and JoAnns- AND it seems like I remember reading a post on hear that a mama made and sold them...?
