yep, i have the LDD pattern and it's great. i didnt see the directions, but that's how i do it!

That died CV is

So I re-did Ds's "pull-up" the right way LOL. The only thing is I did not cut the inner fabric the rin the right direction so there was no stretch and therefor it did not fit Oh well I get it ALL right next time. On a good note I FFSed it so it is on its way to a new home where it will be loved Here are the pics n-e





I think next time I am going to put the opening in front AND back b/c that thing was a BEAR to stuff LOL

Hey it looks nice! You did a great job~ I love my LDDs, but they are bears to stuff too, I think I'm gonna stick to back pockets, I always make front for some reason, but I def. a back pocket kidna lady, A LOT easier to stuff!

Re: ~*Homemade Diaper Thread*~April 26th-May 3rd

I'll have 3 matching DDU nb fitteds with snap in soakers to post later tonight. I have one 100% done, and two more need top stitched. I'm not sure I like the snap in soaker in a nb dipe, it looks like it would shift around too much. The first one I did, I did 4 body layers (1 waffle knit print, 3 hemp jersey) and 6 soaker layers (1 waffle knit, 5 hemp jersey) and it seemed too bulky. So for the other 2 I did 3 body layers, and 4 soaker layers. I hope that will work better. I have enough quick dry soaker layers cut out of the hemp jersey for 2 more snap in soakers, then I'm going to re-cut more layers out of hemp fleece in the internal size and sew them in that way, and make a few doublers. I think that will work better. What do you all like for your nb dipes?
