nearly completed - just have hem and top stitch left plus I have to erase my marks (hot pink water sol pen on green linen stands out!)

will be back to post pictures when I find my camera cord.

I washed but haven't ironed or cut my linen yet. We now have about 1/2 of our kitchen put back together (the usable part - the base cabinets and tall pantry cabinets). On a side note, I bought the slush mugs for my kids for Easter and I bought an extra one for me! I found them at perpetualkid.com (well, nostalgic win found them at perpetual kid and I followed a link).

How are you guys doing?

I've got room in my freezer right now so I'll pull a trick out of my Grandma's bag and not dry it all the way, ball it up and stick it in the freezer. Apparently, it's easy to iron things when they are frozen... I've done it with table cloths (where did Grandma keep her table linens? the freezer, of course! The whole point of their deep freeze was to store clean but unironed table linens and our slushee cups)

I don't have a serger (it's on my list but it's not high right now with the kitchen renovations brought on by buying an over range microwave that ended up being too heavy for our 30+ year old now-quite-obviously-homemade mdf cabinets) but i think i'll zigzag about 1/4 inch in before washing. sigh... I hate ironing... :-(

should I wash my linen? I'll have this dress drycleaned. I probably should. How should I treat the edges so they won't fray? zig-zag, fray check, something else? I usually work with knits for my kids that don't fray as easily.

I picked up the fabric and the pattern today but I lent my sewing machine to my best bud to make her trousseau. McCall's M5655 view C (with the bow like the girl on the front), mint green linen.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Intro to Cloth Diapers (Request for info) on: February 25, 2009 07:12:55 PM
I'm a newbie to cloth diapering too. I only use cloth for potty training. For my girls, I bought gerber training pants and put the vinyl pants over them but they hated the plastic pants and kept taking them off.  so I'm making training pants with velcro sides (like Huggie's pull-ups) for my son using a combo of a couple patterns (he's a skinny kid so I had to work to fit him). From what I've read on my babycenter board, most moms prefer all-in-one diapers with velcro closures which look almost like a disposable diaper with a PUL cover and an absorbent inside tacked together with FOE. You can stuff them with a soaker for extra absorbency as well by putting a pocket in the back.

there's a lot of information about all sorts on a website called diaperswappers.com. It's what the CD ladies I know talk about most often. You can often even buy or swap used diapers there too - sometimes helpful when starting a new project.

Is it too late to join? I saw the McCall's M5655 and fell in love (helps that they have a really similar one at Talbot's for like $200 to push me over the edge!). I have a wedding to go to in May (my best bud's) and this would be perfect!

I love brown and pink! I wish my pale, blonde girls looked good in it but they end up looking washed out. My niece looks great though!

They are all cute. I can't decide if my favorite is the teal polka dots or the brown with pink and teal flowers. My girls are too big for these dresses now (4 and 7) and my son, like yours, isn't into dresses (not to say that he isn't into hairbows and jewels though).
