1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Oilcloth diaper covers??? on: August 28, 2009 10:03:15 PM
plummy: Thanks so much for the info!  I figured there must be a good reason why oilcloth (or a form of it) hasn't been used for diaper covers.  I'm going to stick with my knitted wool cover, then.

FriendlyJas: Yep, through my diaper cover research I learned about wool covers and their need to be specially laundered. Thanks for looking out for me, though! Smiley

Thanks for the replies!

I was thinking the newer oil cloth, but I bet treated cloth would be more comfortable.  Thanks for the tips about new vs. old oilcloth.

I did some more research, and I'm in the process of knitting a diaper cover out of wool. I've learned that natural wool has lanolin which makes it virtually waterproof.  I'm going to try it out and see if I like it.  Otherwise, I may end up making a cover out of the newer oilcloth and see what happens.

I've been thinking about whipping up some cloth diapers for my little one.  I was thinking about making a couple diaper covers instead of buying them or making them out of PUL.  I have a bit of oilcloth in the house, and was wondering if it would be OK to use for diaper covers.  I've tried searching online for advice, but I haven't found anything.

What do you think?

Beautiful dress!  I also appreciate the comments about historical clothing - I too love to learn new things Smiley.

These aprons are super cute!  Plus, I was just checking out the U-handbag blog ( http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/ ), and it looks like a pattern for this apron is in the UK's new "Sew" magazine.  I wonder how easy it is to get my hands on one of those magazines?  Hmmmm. Time to Google.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Painted Tree - who needs vinyl? on: June 22, 2009 06:48:02 PM
After some deliberating, I decided to paint a tree in my son's bedroom. I poked around on the internet for vinyl options, but I had trouble finding exactly what I wanted - something simple but realistic (not too whimsical).  I found a photo of basically what I wanted and just printed it out and folded it several times to get a grid to work from.  I spent a bit of time measuring both the paper and wall *numbers crunched* and sketched an outline with pencil. When I was happy with my sketch, I just outlined it with painter's tape, painted several coats of brown paint, and VOILA...a tree.

The idea is to add leaves, animals and other nature items to match the seasons as they come and go.  We may also take creative liberties and add space aliens and the like Smiley.

The room is still 'in the works'.  I'll post photos of his entire room when it's finished.  Stay tuned.

Gorgeous!  I love the gathers - very designer-looking.  It can be tough making visions a reality.  I'm so glad yours turned out.  Great job!
