I thought I may show off to you all today and reveal some of the sewing I’ve been doing.
First, my selection of cloth nappies. The minkee zebra stripe and pink dot are made of PUL backed fabric I purchased and the rest is fabric I already had in my own collection (with a basic PUL inside to make them waterproof). I also used some near new baby wraps that I had hardly ever used. I used the snaps for fastening however as much as they look better – I really do think Velcro would have been easier…hmm maybe next time!!
Miss Z looks adorable in her little pinafore. I think the fabric I used was just perfect for it. I had so much I ended up making two matching nappies for it (’cause we always need a matching set LOL!). The good thing is it will probably still fit her in a year or so as a cute swing top. You can find the tutorial and the pattern at Smashed Peas & Carrots.
Miss N loves her new T Shirt dress. This one is totally re-purposed using a shirt and fabric we already had. I think it looks sort of vintage:) I made a small ruffle at the top of the skirt and added a cute waist tie. Its fairly long on her however she’s such a girly girl she thinks its fabulous:) This pattern is from Tea Rose Home.
For someone who can’t really sew much at all, I think I did pretty well!!
