Our diaper stash September 11, 2008

Once I figured out how to sew diapers, I was totally hooked and went kinda bonkers, actually.  DS has TONS of dipes, and #2 already has a sizeable stash.  I can’t help myself, they are so easy and ridiculously cute!  I’m kind of torn about how many to make for #2, though, since we don’t know how big or small it will be.  I made about 6 of the super tiny dipes (used this doll pattern to make them) just in case #2 is as small as DS was.  All of the newborn patterns I found online were GIANT!  As in, they would’ve fit DS when he was from about 3 months to about 8 months, so those obviously won’t work.  So I just modified the doll pattern, making it a little bigger, and voila.  I have about a dozen of these.  My goal is to have two dozen total.

So here are the dipes.

I also have made little fleece covers for both DS and #2.  Check out the difference in size!!  These are such a snap to make, I’m gonna wait till #2 arrives before deciding which size.

I’ve made a few wool shorties for NOR, but will wait to make any for #2 until later.

Here's his wool shortie stash

We also have TONS of prefolds that we got from a very nice lady on freecycle (check it out at freecycle.org, it’s a GREAT sharing program!) and lots of plastic covers, as well.  Plus, I have lots of supplies left to make more dipes. . . somebody stop me!
