Honestly - I can't get/find cool fabric like that around here either - I get/got/find it on eBay Wink Gotta love eBay!

That's funny because I was going to mention that the only place I have seen fabric like that is eBay!  I buy SO much fabric off eBay, it's just silly!

It does make me wonder where the EBay sellers get it, though.  I mean, it HAS to come from somewhere, right?  *imagining little elves frantically drawing dinos on muslin to slip in an EBay seller's stash before they wake up*  Grin

LOL!

I'll take a look and see if I still have a piece of the selvage with the writing lying around - at least then we'll know what company makes it...

What's kind of funny is that DD and I did painted fat quarters for the Sweat shoppe swap that's going on now, and we did, indeed, use a fabric paint marker and draw oodles and oodles of cupcakes and suns and moons for some of them, and then hand colored them in.

If there are elves drawing dinos on fabric, I feel very sorry for them. It's somewhat tedious.  Wink 

Oh, and yes, if you happen to find the selvage with the company that made the dino fabric, I'd love to know who makes it (but don't go to too much trouble finding it.  It's not worth pulling apart the trash unless you have a sewing-specific trash that doesn't have dirty diapers and banana peels to sort through.)  Smiley

greenapples and muria-
tell me a bit more about that diaper pouch. Does it all fold up into one piece? or is the changing pad seperate? Was there a tute or could you tell me how it was made? I might need to make one of these for my new baby. ( Hope I can remember how to change diapers! )

Changing diapers is like falling off a bike, you NEVER forget how.  Smiley

I'll see if I can get some more pictures of it up so you can see what it's like.  The changing pad is separate, and velcros in place.

I made it based off of a pattern (a Simplicity one I think). I say based because I cut out the pieces for the change pad, then,in true pregnancy brain fashion - lost the rest of the pattern!

I went from the picture on the pattern, and cut 2 largish rectangles, then placed the pockets based on the pic from the pattern company website, and cut pockets based from that. The pockets were supposed to be zippered, but well..pregnancy brain + zippers didn't seem like the greatest of ideas (I did already misplace the pattern, didn't I?!). For those, I just went by the pocket size and cut flaps, sewed those on, then hand sewed 3 snaps per flap.

For the closure for the pouch, it was supposed to be a buckle, but I went with Velcro instead (how often is it that you have 2 hands to get all the diaper change stuff ready when you're on the go? Velcro just seems quicker and easier to me!).

As Muria said, the change pad Velcros onto the pouch (great for washing - then you don't HAVE to wash the whole pouch when the change pad gets dirty - plus there's the option of making a second pad to go with it when one pad is in the wash, etc.).

That's pretty much it - but I'll look and see if I can find the pattern number for you (and verify if it was simplicity or not - lol!)
