Re: Pinning challenge! :D

Ok, I'm in though it will only be pins when I'm changing her as DH refuses to use them. My thing is that I can do one pin just fine but not two, always ends up too loose and I have a hard time pinning cotton PFs. Bamboo isn't usually a problem but the PF has to be big enough to use one pin. I need the challenge. Will start tomorrow.

You get an idea just how tiny he is when you realize that the length of one pin is over half as wide as he is I gotta take his measurements today for a pair of longies, and I'm interested to see just where he's at

That's how my prefolds look 95% of the time!!! We just gotta keep trying!

Now I have the Yo Gabba Gabba "Keep Trying" song in my head. "Don't, don't, don't give up! Don't, don't, don't give up! Keep trying, keep trying- don't give up! Never give up!" HAHAHAHAH! I'm a dork though.

Maybe today can be our practice day and tomorrow we start officially? I don't know, what does everyone else think? It might make sense to start tomorrow since weekends are kinda slow.

Re: Pinning challenge! :D

I'm game. Are there better brands of pins then others? Or do they wear out over time. I have a few dritz pins that I bought at Joann's Fabrics but I have the hardest time getting them through fabric, even after sticking them in a bar of soap
