Out of girls curtians...

 I found these girls curtians at the local thrift store and just knew that they would be perfect ReCreated into little girls dresses. 
Pictured  first is a infant flower petal dress and second, a toddler dress for the Ottobre magazine.  I lined the dresses with a bright pink broadcloth that I had in my stash. 
I have to say that I am in love with them and only wish that I had a little girl to dress them in.   Figure that they will possible go on Etsy for sale and then if not sold by April will be put on the Take 2 Kids Consignment sale.

PUL One Size Diapers

OK, I have actually made some cloth diapers.  Now, no laughing, but I have had this PUL fabric for at least 2 years now. 
The reason for the delay in making the diapers was confusion and fear.  For the life of me, I just could not wrap my brain around how to make them.  So after talking to my friend SS, I went on line and found on You Tube a tute from Jalie about how to make them and Thump in the forehead, I got it.
Now, I did purchase the Kamsnap pliers and am very happy for the purchase.  It has made the construction very easy. 
I lined the diapers with a stretch velour and the soaker is 2 layers of thrifted towels and a micro terry. 
I am very happy with how they have come out.  Now I have some solid red, lite pink and lite blue to work on. 
Hoping to sell them in the end.
