That was my thought. when it comes to diaper stuff, you always need more. I always used the vinyl covers. Do the soakers keep the outer garments dry?

Here's my latest destash project. I am working on a pattern for something a friend wants to make and figured why not make the prototype out of ok fabric and give it to one of the kids. Why not eh? Uses up fabric from my pile (mountain) and makes them so incredibly happy while I'm at it Wink. Button eyes, fabric nose.

We don't know if it's a monkey or a dog so my little dude named it Mog. Heh.

The first thing I thought of was Hobbs from Calvin and Hobbs, except he is a tiger XD

Oh, definitely I plan to make more!  I'd like to have 4-5 of each size so that I can rotate them in/out with ample time for cleaning and drying.  Wool is a pretty absorbent (and breathable) fiber.  There should be no reason why they wouldn't keep the outer garments dry.

I had never heard of them when my kids were young, but now I see them all the time. It just makes me curious. My oldest is 19 and he is the only one who used cloth diapers at any point.

lapoli- Thank you! Those diaper cover look so cute! Too bad I did not hear about cloth diapers 2 years ago, now the kid is too big for that, maybe if I have another one I will take the plunge!

I have not seen them in action, as most of my friends don't have children.. for whatever reason.  Are you on Ravelry, by chance? If so, you can search the pattern section for diaper soakers and click on the "projects" tabs.  There are a lot of action photographs, at least, of the soakers!  I won't be able to report back on these until September/October at the earliest.

I went to three different stores that carry yarn (one lys), and only bought hooks, needles, and books. I did manage to use some stash cotton yarn teaching myself tunisian crochet and some wool (I bought it for a swap then changed my mind) practicing crochetnit. I made a handful of scrubbies, a couple of washclothes, and a pair of wristwarmers. I plan to continue practicing different stitches with more washclothes and some ron's blanket squares.

So I just spent $75 at Michaels after not having gone to a craft store in months. But the things I bought I needed to finish up my projects. I was given a bunch of beads but had no clasps/closures/crimp things so I had to get some and they're really expensive. And I needed some Mode Podge so I can use my oragami paper to do the decoupage thing. So that will get rid of stuff now I can finish them.  Since the bead stuff is so expensive and I don't see myself doing beading/jewelry in the future (except adding tiny things to a bag or something), I may try and get rid of it all.  My aunt was just telling me that she needs more yarn so I think I'll bring her over some of mine and that will get rid of some too.

I'm working on the decoupage right now since it doesn't take long with what I'm doing. Maybe later I'll pop a movie in and finish the strap to the bag I started in December >.>

I am working on getting rid of my mountain of old jeans!  They take up way too much room!

Here is one of the aprons I made--and I plan on making quite a few more, including full aprons!
