When I started cloth diapering so long ago, I never realized how it would change my life. It sounds kooky, I know, but it is very true. Pre cloth diapering I was a mere dabbler in knitting. Now I am obsessed. I am now renewing my rocky, on again, off again relationship with my sewing machine thanks to cloth diapering. Look at what cloth diapering has driven me to:
Yes ladies and gentlemen, I made that with my very basic sewing machine. My husband asked me if I had bought that cover. It felt pretty good to tell him that I had made it all by myself. I found a really awesome free fleece soaker pattern and have been sewing up a storm. I needed (well wanted) some more soakers for the boys. The shorties that I had been making all winter do not do to well under shorts. This is soo much faster than knitting them, I can make one in about a half hour (if there are no kids bugging me). The yellow fleece was actually part of one of the million blankets that we were given as baby gifts.
I think I need to have another baby soon, because I have also been eyeing these websites. I am trying not to go too nuts with the boys, because I am hoping (fingers crossed) to potty train them both after the move (another reason I did not want to knit more soakers), but my fingers are itching to make more cute things than my kids could possible wear. I blame Diaper Swappers and it's craft forum!
