1  Cloth Nappies in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by zucch3ro on: June 18, 2010 10:48:07 PM
My cousin is having a baby girl any day now and she mentioned that she would love to give cloth nappies a try, so I decided to make her some. I made 12 in total and used the Rita Rump Pocket pattern found here:


But they are actually stuffed, I used 3 layers of towelling and sewed it into the lining. I also used a very thin shower curtain to line them to make them more leak proof. So they wont be able to put them into the dryer but the curtain was very thin so it doesn't make those squelchy sounds when they move. The outside is made from op shopped baby blankets, all flanellette. The lining is patterned jersey. If I were to make it again I probably wouldn't use jersey for the centre it made it hard to line up the pieces and it doesn't sit flat like the outside but I m pretty happy with the finished product.

I didn't put any snaps or velcro on so they can be used for a larger range of sizes. Anyway onto the photos ...

here is one all folded up

this is the outside of one laid flat

this is a semi-folded one that shows the inside

this is all 12 of them folded up together

it all ended up taking much longer then i expected so I am quite glad they are finished!

2  My Amy butler pillow - inspired by mozilla in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by zucch3ro on: February 11, 2009 03:53:13 AM
i wasn't sure whether to post this in the original post or make a new one. but i definately wouldn't have even know about this pattern without this thread:
so yeah..

anyway i made mine out of normal craft felt so it was stiff enough to keep the petal shape so i didnt need to use any wonder under or anything like that.
i used michael miller's dainty damask fabric to make the actual pillowcase.
so here are the pics:

this is the closeup of the flower, i used a metallic button in the middle

and the whole pillow so you can see the fabric:

thanks for looking
