    Hi girls, I have been sewing

    Today I embroidered two nappy cuts, one for a Christmas nappy that I need to find some red velour for the inner before I can sew it up, and one little blue fox that I have turned into an AIO tonight. I have only ever made one AIO before and I basically copied a Bubblebubs but added extra layers as Austy's Bubblebubs just weren't making the distance for his 2-3hr naps.

    This one I drafted myself from scratch and when I put it next to the very baby nappies and fuzzi bunz it looks about right for size so my fingers are crossed that it's not just ornamental Here are the pics:

    I need a bit more practise with the velcro (soooo reliant on my snap press!), and probably didn't need the fold over tabs since I used HTH velcro which doesn't really stick to anything, but just to be safe, and more practice! I did a whole bamboo fleece body layer that the soaker pad is stitched to so it's a tad bulky - not sure if I would switch that for flannel next time, like bubblebubs have (Austy's have been worn to death so the flannel is exposed on a couple ). It's nice and soft though...

    Looks good jgal! That HTH does stick to other stuff I have found but it tends to be other velcro nappies that can end up really rough looking. I reccon it's the worse for coming off it's laundry tabs. The normal velcro is better for that.

    Kel lol that sounds well deserved

    Very quiet in here lately... is everyone busy sewing? I made bub her first Christmas AIO the other night so I will blog it tonight to give you all something to chat about. I embroidered the bum, this time with a reindeer and used a tute to help me roll the fleece in on the legs - it worked a treat!

    **** Bertha is back in the house!!!!! I havent used her yet...she has been my personal bribbery in getting so many much needed to be finished orders done. so one more week and I can play again!!!

    I have finally bitten the bullet. I made my very first AIO last night for one of the clothy girls who pg with number 3.....I bought the most gorgeous material from Spotisville last week and I just had to make a newborn out of it. It has ahidden booster on the inside, hidden PUL and a nioce booster to match the nappy.

    No wonder you girls love making nappies..**** it is so nioce and fun to do after making covers (boring) for so long. I could so soon get addicted to making these

    Im gonna put it up in the gallery....once i find the camera and I'll put up a link

    nope.

    Get your 2 pieces of cloth (I use flanno on one side, terry on the other) and sew them together wrong-side-in leaving a spot to turn them inside out.

    Use a straight stitch to join them, and if you don't have an overlocker then use a short zig-zag to go around the edges, to stop fraying.

    Turn them right-side out and go around the seam with either something decorative (zigzag) or straight to keep it all in place

    good luck!
