Sewing, Orders, Fluffy Mail, On the Needles and mindless ramblings

Sewing

Mel and I had another sewing day and actually got some sewing done - we each made a cloth pad. Not prefect but we will get there. I did have a great day though :) oh and mine is the pink one.


Orders/Purchases

Mel and I have ordered some Hemp from Bubba Earth - I also got some overlocking thread and some maxi-lock swirls to make things pretty.

I bought some Longies from Buy for Baby for $19 (plus post) - 12ply so nice and thick - lets hope they are well made and fit well.

Also bought 3 AIOs from Baby Beehinds (magicalls) - on pre order to be here end of July I think???? I got purple, green and orange.

Fluffy Mail

I bought some nappies from Cuddly-Bub I was curious to see what they were like - they were very cheap due to an error on their site so I paid $26 (I think) for 4 hemp one size nappies. They arrived and I am not happy with the fit, or the fact the materials are not pre-washed and the TT is cheap spotlight type that is very hard.

I plan on washing and drying to shrink and then removing TT, opening turned end, removing leg elastic and cutting down the crotch size, re sewing the elastic and either snapping or using 1.5inch TT.

I got a Swadlebees Hemp pocket in a swap with Ying - size M - it fits Nate really well on the tightest setting. Very narow though and Scott could never stuff it - although he never changes/wases/has anything to do with the nappies so not a big drama.

On the Needles

Bumble Bee shorties and matching beanie with "Busy" on them - to be worn in spring. Yellow and black stripe. Wish me luck, LOL.

Mindless Ramblings

I bought some new jeans and have been getting asked if I have lost weight which is always nice - I have lost a LITTLE but hope to loose another 10kgs in the next 6 mths or so. I am still breastfeeding Nate so I will see how we go - A BIG YAY FOR ME for breastfeeding for 15.5mths so far (10mths exclusively before solids) - I am so proud.
