This is great! I know you said you didnt want to show the serging of the diaper, but if you ever decide to I would love to see it! Also, next time you make one of these, can you show how you put one sleeve in the other in a little more detail? I cant quite picture how it works.

For the pants waist, did you pin the elastic in and then just sew along the edge or something? I am such a beginner sewer that I have no idea how some of this stuff is done.

When I make pants I sew a "casing", so I sew along the bottom away from the fold in the pants and then thread the elastic through. I am not sure if that is how she is doing.

And I think with the pants/sleeves, you put them together, one inside out and the other right side out, with right sides together, and the inside out side on the out. . .I hope that made sense and helped some!

Can I post the ones I made? I had so much fun with these. The gray one is really stretchy so I'm not sure how it will work. It was a $3 WalMart clearance and the red was a maternity shirt that I didn't wear because it drove my eyes nuts. I have plans for a white fleece top for those.
