Training Undies

Standard

Flashback!

I’ll be posting some things I’ve made over the last few years that used to be on my old blog. That blog is lost forever now so the pics are moving here!

 A few years ago I experimented with different styles of training underwear for my daughter. Most of them were a bit too small or too tight or too loose around the legs for her but the striped one was a winner. She continued to wear it even after training.:) These were made from old t-shirts with a patch of terry inside to catch leaks:

T-Shirt Dishrags

Standard

Flashback!

 I made a lot of these dishrags from t-shirt scraps. Red was a mistake though because it bled all over for the first few weeks it was in use. The other colors performed much better! These are double sided with pin-tucked centers. The tucks create ridges for scrubbing.😀

Window Quilts

 These are the window quilts I made for the kids’ room from old sheets, blankets and t-shirts:

Toy Bowling Set Bag

Standard

This project was pretty far down on my list of priorities but this morning I wanted a quick project to do that didn’t have to be anywhere near perfect.
I used the bottom of an old cotton blend t-shirt, using the bottom hem as a drawstring casing, scrap fabric, cheapo buttons and beads, and an old salvaged shoelace.
Very easy and much neater for the set! I did see a bag like this somewhere online but can’t remember where to give the credit, sorry!

The Finished Stack of Cloth Diapers

Standard

Here are the finished 9 diapers in Rusty Wallace, floral, Matt Kenseth, surfing, tie-dyed and Penn State prints. They turned out so cute but they are quite small. I doubt they’ll last the baby’s first two months before they’re outgrown.

Fern and Fairie Fitted Cloth T-Shirt Diaper

Standard

Here’s the first finished of a set of cloth diapers I’m making from our old cotton t-shirts. I used the free Fern and Faerie pattern/instructions that can be found here: http://fernandfaerie.com/sewing_fitteds.html . I chose to make the stuffable style.

The only snag I came to was the elastic around the legs. The pattern doesn’t say how long to cut the elastic. The difference between notches on the pattern for small is 10 inches so I tried 7 inches of elastic. I think that’s too long since the legs don’t seem to be cinched in very much at all. I’ll cut 6 inches for the next one.

I have a bunch of these cut and prepped that were just waiting for the velcro so now that I have velcro the next diaper post should be a picture of a stack of finished dipes.😀
