Your stuff looks fantastic, as always, happymom83. I've been considering making some OS fleece covers from Adelle's pattern (Abby Rose Creations) which I Again, I'm over your fabric stash . . .

Oh, I had never even noticed your fabric link! That was fun!

I have a fabric problem too. I mostly sell fleece covers and mama cloth, but I have a serious knits problem I've noticed I'm weak to Benartex minkee prints but I have trouble finding them locally. I'm trying to find a reasonably priced supplier right now.

A question - when your OS fleece covers are on the smallest setting, how well do the layers fold up? I wouldn't think it would be too bulky, but I'm just curious. We have serious fleece love here, and I want to make DD some new covers. I found out a few days ago I'm preggers so I'd like to be able to reuse some of them later, and OS is definitely the way to go!

Can you tell me how many inches apart your snaps are? I want to make OS cover too but I am too scared to try! is there a way you can tell me like how to make them one size? Thanks!!!

happymom83, how do you get so much done so quickly??? You amaze me, I feel good if I get three or four diapers done in a week. Anyhoo, here's my latest accomplishment, two more custom t-shirt diapers for a customer. They're medium hhs with sherpa hidden and procool inner. The purple one turned out so cute, despite looking totally wonky in the pic. It's an Italian shirt that says "ciao baby" across the back:
