Lovely image. And thank the stars the man has a foreskin! I can't wait to see it finished!!!

I made the carrot cake, the only sugar was from concentrated apple juice. It had cream cheese frosting and looked like spongebob! NO ONE could tell it wasn't a "normal" cake- in fact, it was a little too sweet for me.

You gals now have a pregnant lady searching for a squeeze bottle to make this  Grin I think we just finished a bottle of ketchup. It looks sooooooooooo gooooooood.
Well, except the can thing, too much packaging for pancakes for me... though I do want easy cheese now, too  Shocked
I shouldn't be here right now  Cheesy

So, how comfy does the padding make it? I've never used a padded one, just a ring sling or wrap (which I love, don't get me wrong). Just wondering if you can compare it? I've got another kiddo coming in about 8 months  Grin

I can still carry my kiddo on my back or hip with a wrap (just a long, narrow strip of fabric)-- she's about 26 lbs and totally comfy for short rides  Wink

For those interested, my favorite baby wearing site is www.mamatoto.org

I am so proud of each and every one of you!
16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about sewing diferent fabrics on: November 20, 2007 12:05:40 PM
When using knite, I always use a ballpoint needle, otherwise it sticks and makes the tension crazy.  And I keep the woven side down because I don't have differential feed dogs on my sewing machine (uh, the bottom fabric should be the least amount of stretch so that it doesn't pucker or ruffle).

And use the needle for the heavier fabric (like denim & ribbons) otherwise, the needle won't pierce the heavy fabric.  If it's a really flimsy fabric, you can use a stabilier or stabilizing strip of fabric to bulk it up on the seam (or handsew).

Serger rules are the same  Grin

I think you could claim these as "reversable"... if the sole seam were decorative enough (satin stitch, something tight and in a coordinating color).  I've seen them that way, so, maybe... not an enclosed seam on the sole, but still "reversable"... Am I making any sense? cause i can't see any other way of doing it without handsewing it shut.

That picture makes my ovaries ache!

I have to make one for my two year old. Grin

MamaBird has a great AIO pattern, well, I haven't tried it, but it looks insanely easy and, well,  http://www.geocities.com/rew4birth/AIO_Instructions.html

And, I prefer pocket-style-- here it is with PUL or Windpro Fleece (the stuff from Wal-Mart and JoAnns WILL NOT WORK) http://www.geocities.com/mamabirdcloth/index.html
The fit for the dipes is absolutely perfect for my DD, who is 2 now, and has been in the same size mamabird since.... well over a year.  She is on the thin-but-muscular side, with thin thighs (don't think these would fit chubby thighs at all).

Hope that helped some!
20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Nappies / Trainers (4 Pics) TUTE ADDED! on: October 22, 2007 04:40:32 PM
Okay, so I made one of these... and I'm looking at the leg openings where the PUL meets the inner layer... I have a really bonehead question. Should I bind the legs with PUL? It looks like the legs will wick because the inner is kinda rolling toward the outside. Can I topstitch through the PUL so that the inner cotton doesn't roll to the outside?  Huh Thanks!

ETA- I'll answer my own question-- I can, and I will. And you can too, but only if you want to Smiley
