    I finally got my act together and fixed my sewing machine yesterday, and spent a blissful afternoon finishing off my prefolds!!! I also get creative with some left over fleece and made my puppy a jacket.



    Maz - I Maxi swirled the edges of my prefolds... They look fabo... DH even thought they looked fancy!!

    Felt so good to get back into sewing. Tonight I have to finish off my covers... I am going to try and make one with gussets...

    It must have been the day for it yesterday. I was off work sick (figured there's no point me giving everyone in the office a disgusting cold) and so cut out all my fleece patterns & liners. I might tackle the bamboo today. I'll figure out how to pop some pics up and post them.

    Hmm, wasn't getting notifications for awhile. *shrugs*

    Jols, I prefer snappi, because it gives such a versatile fit.

    Sorry non-sewer crashing in on the sewing thread. My sewing experience is limited to quilts (ie straight seems etc) I have a Happy heiny that is exposing the elastic in the back... so how do I sew elastic, do I just stretch it out as far as it will go and sew? Any tips?

    TIA
