Two diapers

I've recently made 2 diapers with laminated silk as the outer, one has velour inner, one has alova suede inner.
The laminated silk is supposed to make it an AIO, but I'm not confident in their abilities. LOL.
So for the meantime, they will just be "less leaky fitteds"

The finished Miss Madeline

I finished this 2 days ago, and it was SO stinkin cute on, I had to share.
I've used this pattern 2 more times since, and I'll be sure to post those later.

The start of the Miss Madeline Dress

I decided to try the Miss Madeline dress pattern since I didn't love how the last one (sans pattern) turned out.
So far I like it. I'm a bit further along than this now. I think the whole project could have easily been done in under 30 minutes had I not dealt with 3 phone calls, an HVAC appointment, 2 individual nap times, 1 storytime, getting snacks for kids, an crash and burn injury to my 3 year old, and a diaper blow out (plus putting in a new load of laundry and moving my car for the HVAC guy). In any event, this is the only photo I have thus far.

The peasant Dress

Last night I had to go get some sherpa for a few diapers I wanted to finish for Lily.
While there, I can across these two impossibly cute fabrics that I knew would make a super cute dress for Lily.

I used a tutorial online for a peasant shirt/dress and went to town.

I love the fabrics together, however I don't love how the dress came out. I mean, it's cute, but the skirt is a little too straight (needs to be more a-lined) but that's my fault b/c the link is just a tut, not a pattern so I should have made the shirt wider. Oh well. Live and learn, right? ;) In any event, its cute on... just now crawling friendly ;)

I'm now the proud owner of...

a snap press!!!

I don't love the placement of the snaps on this one, but it was a practice one. Also, ignore the ugly diaper. It was the 2nd one I ever made. Haha
