maybe layer the plastic?  You shrink a flat base, and the lettering, then layer and reshrink. Someone else did something like this to make a fish pendant that looked like it was underwater. it's on this board somewhere.

That would give a more sturdy product.

Hee gee, trying to get my 20 month old and 3 week old to sync up naps has been difficult but I can probably do some night time sewing
I haven't gotten mine to sleep early enough for that yet! But were working on it. I'm trying to make another one of these shirts right now. Smiley

This is awesome!  i may have to try making a shirt like this for when I'm out in public.
Its really easy and only takes an hour or so. I made this one in a few naps. Smiley

They look cute, love the clouds! But why not lining them with PUL so you don't even need the plastic cover? (I could send you some if you like, just let me know)
We still use cloth diapers for our son (2 y/o) who's potty training now and we love it.

I have pul just been saving it to make covers with. these are a newborn size so where only used in this manner for a short time. I use the flip system so now I newspaper fold and use them as inserts.
I don't think you can use pins with pul though. and prefolds only work with snappi's or pins. to my knowledge. sadly flannel won't snappi. Sad

thanks! I am a bit self conscious about it since I'm still new at nursing. Smiley

How fun!  I LOVE cute cloth diapers on a baby bottom!  When I was diapering my kids I only had unbleached India cotton prefolds and plain diaper covers.  Your fuzzy clouds make me want to do it all over again!!
I have those too. planning tie dye them to make them more fun. Smiley I want to buy more flannel and make more in bigger sizes!

So Most breastfeeding/nursing shirts cost major $$$. Like 40.00 or more. Ridiculous! So I looked at them for ages on amazon and various websites to get an idea how they work. I came up with a plan to make my own.

(nursing bras are so not cute either but that's something for another craft.)
I've bought some more shirts to make 2 more. I will have the best fall/summer nursing wardrobe ever in a very short time. Just need to find more shirts to use!

I used a random fabric from my stash for the straps and duck cloth for the body. I would use something like a stretch denim, or a broadcloth for the straps if buying to make from scratch.
The pattern is really easy to follow. I made it in a few short naptimes.
Oh the body fabric is from ikea. Smiley

We;ve been cloth diapering for about a 4 weeks now. I love it but sadly the kind we picked(prefolds) do not usually come in cute colors or prints. So as a crafty momma I took matters into my own hands. And using this tutorial:
And only modifying size I made some prefolds with this cute fabric I got at walmart! I also used microfiber along with the terry cloth in the center for extra absorbency.
I finally located some pins so I can show them off!

You use them with a water proof cover so they don't wick on to baby's clothes which is what she's sitting on. Smiley I had to leave it open so you could see the diaper.
