Homemade Diapers

I wanted to show off my pretty homemade diapers, I made the pattern and cut it out on 100% cotton fabric. I was going to sew them also but found out that my mother-in-laws sewing machine is so old that it only sews a straight stitch and this required a zigzag stitch, so we asked our neighbor and koobara (wedding witness) Nicki to sew them for us and she kindly did so.

This is just too cool! What a great way to save money and space in a landfill. Way to go Mara.

Well...They do look beautiful now..you'll probably put a few huggies in the diaper bag...I remember the diapers I used on Eric in Australia...maybe you'll like the cloth ones best..Grandma B even used a dish towel in a pinch. Love, Ma
