So I have around 11 of those flannel diapers sewn and I thought I'd try my hand at an AIO... it turned out cute, same design as the flannel BUT the suede interior (next to baby's bottom) does not "wick" away the moisture like I thought. I'm thinking I got the wrong kind of suedecloth. So on to a funner (yes its a word) project, I attempted a wet bag (to keep all the dirty diaps in)...
The inner layer is PUL (which is waterproof, yet you can throw it in the dryer) and the outer is fleece.
And here it is with the drawstring pulled...
I'm getting quite addicted to sewing... I didn't see that coming... now I need a craft room! Right now I have the kitchen table taken over!
It looks great! I would love to get back into sewing more but I don't have a machine right now. I'm just using one of the singer hand held stitchers for small projects. It works alright but I can't do anything cool like you.
I can help! Basting is using the largest stitch on the machine - it's a stitch that you will either be removing later using for gathering. The salvage is the edge of the fabric that you cut off (usually a tighter looking weave, with holes) - it's where the machine was holding the edges as it was made and can't be used in the final product.
