Yay, I'm really excited! So after I made that fitted diaper as practice, and worked out what I needed to change with the pattern I designed... I felt brave enough to use some of the PUL I have and make a pocket diaper. I have enough of the aqua PUL for six diapers, so I wasn't too worried if this one didn't turn out like I wanted... however, it turned out REALLY well!

It's not perfect... I'm not a very good sewer (especially making a straight stitch... I kind of go all over the place, lol), so there are some imperfections with it... BUT, this was a great practice run and I might be ready to use my "fancy PUL" (prints and stuff, lol). Anyways here are some pictures of how it turned out, and some with Seamus in it... tell me what you think!







lol, this face is funny...

Cute! It looks really trim, too.

What did you use for the binding on it?

You did a better job with the bias tape than I did when I used some to edge a swaddling blanket! That stuff is tricky around curves.

Wow! That looks really really good. I hope when I start making diapers that mine look as good as yours.

Wow.... I'm not sure I could do that good and I am ok with sewing. You did an excellent job, I can't wait to see others you make.

I have no idea if my diaper-making will turn into a business... but if I get better at it, who knows! Right now it's just for personal use though.

Oh I know, he looks drunk in that first picture, LOL. It was the flash of the camera that made him do that.
