Congratulations for making a great little dress. I'm tempted to cut out one for my granddaughter. I have plenty of fleece but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the corners square. I usually do rounded ones because it's easier. Smiley
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Share your Mess...Then let's clean it up! on: January 09, 2010 07:48:41 PM
I have just spent the last couple of hours reading through this thread. I'm so relieved that I am not the only member with one very MESSY crafting-room. I'm intending to re-organise mine this week. My daughter suggests I move all my stuff into the other larger spare bedroom - but if I can already successfully create chaos in a small room I'm a little worried about my continued creativity with more space. Regardless of whether I change rooms the mess has to be sorted first.
It was great seeing the the posted results. Good on you.

PS As I was nearing the end of this thread the thought popped into my mind "I could have done a lot of sorting in the time I've been lurking here" but then I spoke back to myself and said "Yes, but I wouldn't have been as inspired if hadn't completed the thread  Smiley    Smiley    Smiley

Seasons greetings to all  Smiley
I have used PUL for the backing on bibs, as a cover for a nursing pillow as well as for the waterproof liner on cloth nappies. It is not sold in the sewing shops here in NZ but there is a nappy supply company called GreenBeans that does supply it and it is quite costly unless it is at sale prices.
This fabric washes well so it is worth the initial price.

Hi there, This is a really great idea. Thanks for the 'tuto'.
It's an idea that I think I will try to make for my DD's expected baby in August - Winter-time in NZ. If I can find nuetral coloured vest I'll get cracking on it.
What size vest did you use?
I'll re-read your post and see if you mentioned it.
Keep on creating   Smiley

Congratulations. You have created a very beautiful dress for your little girl. Smiley

These are so cute. They would be as waterproof as the plastic ones except they allow the babies skin to breath. If they are made in fleece fabric it holds the water well.

Hi, that was a great idea to use a disposable to model your pattern from. Your tute was easy to read as you guided us through the steps. I wouldn't worry about the zig-zag stitch hurting the baby, it will soften up with frequent washing. The 'gusset'  was the best part. I've made some cloth nappies for my little grandaughter to wear, but as she was a winter baby and they live in a tiny flat disposables were best because there is a limit to just how many indoor clothes frames you can put in a room as well as all the other baby stuff  Smiley. I'm also a great fan of serging the edges - it takes away all that extra work of 'turning rightside out etc.'. Serging also stands up to a lot of washing, I know because the original cloth nappies I made for my first child in 1981 lasted through three babies and beyond (I gave them away when I had no further use for them  Smiley.
Your post has generated heaps of great ideas and made some of us think now of other ways to do things and that's what craftster is all about.
Did you consider leaving an opening in the back for an insert like a 'pocket nappy' ? (at least I think that's what they are called).

What a wonderful little baby. You are so clever. I also thought it was a newborn baby at first. It's so cute and perfect detailing. Congratulations.

What a great book. I was amazed at the actual size of the book. It's beautiful. If that is what you can achieve when you are only learning to embroider we will have to watch out for some masterpieces won't we?
I'm sure it will be loved and appreciated.

Well done. It suits her perfectly. The various materials/fabrics that you used look wonderful together.
When I first read your post I had trouble wondering why you would need to take so long to complete it unless your are like me - I start projects with great enthusiasm and often never finish because other important things get in the way. My youngest daughter's hair took about two years also to grow and then came all the golden curls.  Smiley
