This dress is so sweet, I think I just got diabetes.  Adorable!

That is gorgeous!  Making a pattern from scratch is intimidating, but you rocked it!  Nice job!

Thank you!  I hope they work too.  I'm working on a couple more as we speak. 

And, yes, that is the mustache fabric from Alexander Henry's line.  I didn't fussy cut it because I wasn't really expecting my first draft to work...but, it did.  So, it's just half 'staches.  Sad  Oh well!

We're expecting baby #2 in May.  I've decided to try my hand at cloth diapering this one since sposies were so expensive for our first one. 

The orange dipe on your left is a Bumgenius diaper.  I used it to make the pattern for my knock off version on the right.  Mine is quite a bit more bulky since I had to use terry cloth for the soaker.  Crossing my fingers, hoping it works!

On the whole I felt they were much, much better for a hot climate than plastic pants.

Good to hear!

A wool soaker is to be used over a prefold or fitted cloth diaper.  It can hold 30% of its weight in moisture before feeling damp.  It's also antibacterial.  I've been told by friends and family that I might be crazy for making this for my baby due this summer, but cloth diapering mommas everywhere seem to all say that wool is more breathable, and will keep tiny behinds cool in the summer.  We'll see about that part. 

Also, assuming one doesn't leave their munchkin in the thing for hours on end and it doesn't get saturated, wool soakers don't need to be washed as frequently as other diaper covers due to their naturally antibacterial properties.

We are expecting our second baby in May.  I used disposables with our firstborn, but am planning to cloth diaper this new kid.  Newsflash: Cloth diapers are expensive.  Plan:  DIY that crap. 

This wool soaker is made from a 100% wool sweater I found at the thrift store for $1.25 using a free pattern found here http://katrinastyle.webs.com/ .

This sweater was already pretty felted when I bought it, but I ran it through the washer and dryer one more time to be sure.  My only concern is that it might be too big.  :/  I made the newborn size, but it seems more like a 1-3 month old size to me.  Maybe I'm wrong!  It's been a while since we've had a baby in this house!

Thoughts?  Do/Did you cloth diaper your little n00bs?  How'd it go for you?  If you made your own, what pattern did you use?

Thank you!  I'm in love with Aneela Hoey's "Walk in the Woods" fabric.  It was sad to have to cut it!

Ditto.  I love the simplicity and the color scheme!

I had never heard about Jelly Roll Race quilts until about a month ago, and just knew they would be the perfect gift for my nieces and nephew for Christmas this year.  I didn't start with a jelly roll, so cutting the strips took some time. (2 1/2 hours, actually.  O.o)  These are just the quilt tops.  I haven't gotten batting yet.
