Tonights pacman creation has been the best yet. Totally straight snaps, great top stitching...I am so pleased with how this came out.
Oh and by the way, I recently bought some cute one sized pockets from some chick recommended to me...I will never ever do that again. Her attention to detail was HORRIBLE. These have PUL on the inside of 2 layers of wonderfully soft minky. Well, they leak. I investigated. The PUL in the wings was all jumbled and stopped halfway into the wing. No no no! There was more but I don't want to sound like a snob. It was clear they were rushed and that makes me sad.
Anyway, hurricane Irene is coming tomorrow. We might be without power for a few. I hope it's not too bad.

I was busy sewing today, like really busy! But, I loved every second of it.
Today I played around with snap placement and when they should applied. In the end I like them all visible because they just snap better that way.
Then I played around with the elastic. I tried tacking it in before hand. Nope, didn't work. Then sewing it totally in before turning and top stitching. Nope, too much of a hassle getting things pinned together to sew the different layers together.
So in the end I think the casing method is the easiest, but I need to get it to look more professional.
Tomorrow is another day, and I have so much more fabric to play around with while I get everything just right.
Oh and I washed the first three...and they didn't fall apart!
Here are pictures of 2 and 3 and also 1 on Zakary...until tomorrow!

So like I said on day 1, I am working towards starting my very own WAHM diaper company. I am going to perfect my design before selling to anyone. I am doing this so I know they work and trust their quality, plus I need to figure out the elastic a little better.
Today, I got my fabrics and snaps to start!!!
I ordered everything either off ebay or etsy and very reasonable prices and am so excited to get these babies on Zakary's bottom.
I may just start tonight!

My husband is a sailor, who is currently deployed and has been for quite some time. I love him more than I ever thought I could love someone. We met Nov 11, 2005 and haven't been apart since. We have been separated more than we have lived together but I love this journey we are on together.
Hayden is one of the smartest kids I know. He is my doer. He can build anything out of nothing. He will be 4 in about a month.
Jayson is very funny and is my thinker. He will ponder and think about everything for hours before ever making a move. He will be 2 in January.
