In browsing through the Flickr commons, I came upon a picture taken in my home town, Tallahassee.

The fabulous photo inspired me to finally adorn my thrifted Samsonite carry on. Officially the hottest cloth diaper bag in town Wink

Aren't they all just so dreamy! And it's funny because I know many a fixie owner who dresses quite similarly, ha!

Looks fabulous but I second the button warning! No doubt if my daughter had worn this she would've had those in her mouth. We went through a phase where we couldn't ever play in the front yard without her stuffing her li'l chubby cheeks full of acorns, literally! If you are looking to make more diapers, I would consider investing in a KAM snap press or making one yourself and buying the snap die sets (the pieces used to put the snaps one). I have used our snap press for her diapers, making cloths and I know use it daily to put snaps on the cloth menstrual pads I sell. It's well worth it especially when you know you don't have to worry about them ending up in babe's mouth :)

Oh, and if you can't get your hands on some PUL, try a using a fleece blanket for the outside! Polyester fleece repels moisture so it's makes for a great cover :)

This looks great - good job! And congrats for using cloth. As a po' mama myself, I don't know how someone could afford to NOT use cloth! Sposies are insanely expensive AND so bad for Mama Earth. I actually learned to sew because I was too poor to buy retail cloth diapers, like yourself! When I saw they were $20 a pop and I would need at least 12, I was like, hell! Might as well buy a sewing machine and do it myself.

As one who has been sewing cloth diapers for over 2 years I just have to say that using the table cloth materials is going to cost you more in the long run than if you spent the little bit extra and bought some high quality PUL (polyurethane lines polyester) which is what diapers like FuzziBunz use. It usually runs $7/yd and I can cut 6 mediums diapers out of a little less than a yard (I buy by the inch so I get just the amount I need). I've been using those diapers for well over a year now and they are still standing the test of time and hundreds of washes. The thing with the tablecloth vinyl is that is was not meant to be washed very often. Multiple washes will start to take their toll and soon enough you will have to replace them which will cost you more money and they will most likely have to be thrown away which is what you are trying to avoid in the first place! When I first started CDing I hoped to find a good cover fabric in local fabric shops but you just can't. Buying the PUL that will last years as opposed to months is well worth the investment!

I like to use Kids in the Garden because it is run by a stay at home mom just looking to make ends meet. She's also super sweet :) I actually have 3 yards of PUL (melon, citron, and white) and 3 yards of organic hemp sitting on my kitchen table just itching to get cut!

Gorgeous! I love love love the artistic quality of old timey tatts Smiley Did they put it on the wall in their shop?! How flattering! How fun would it be to have a tatt that looked like this, with the detail to make it look like an embroidery?! Mind = blown.
