I think you have a good start.  I like the wood floor and the bit of trim on the otherwise blank wall.

No direct light coming in your window is a good thing.  You'll have harsh shadows otherwise.  Are you in between the window and the subject?  Or is the window to the side of both of you?  That will make a difference with how you bounce the light around, so I'll give some general pointers right now...

Do you have a lamp or something to point at the ceiling and light that up?  (I'm assuming you have a white ceiling like most houses).  When I was a broke college kid, I bought 2 of those clip on work lamps and clipped them to various pieces of furniture to light up my scene.  You don't want to point it directly at the person as that will create a bunch of undesirable shadows but up at the ceiling and towards them a bit. 

Put your camera on a tripod-that's always a good idea and you can use the tripod as a place to hold a piece of white foamboard to bounce even more light onto your subject. 

Pull your subject away from the wall a bit too.  Then you can actually light the wall separately from them if you want.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dancing Donut Bun Maker on: May 25, 2015 01:05:52 PM

I made this bun maker for my daughter's dance recital this past weekend.  Her hair was too short to put up into a regular bun so I whipped this up after I decided I was too cheap to spend the $3 on a donut at the beauty supply shop.  I thought other people might like to make some too so I wrote up the pattern and put it on my blog:

Very cute!  I've been looking for something to wear on top so her cute diapers show.  I'm sure she'll have a dozen or so in the next week.

Flannel usually wicks.  I'd try something thinner and less absorbant for an outer layer.  I usually make my diapers with the hidden PUL layer and top with a designer cotton print and it works fine.  Your pattern and how it fits on baby will determine if it wicks.
