Journey's Nite Nite Diaper

Stephanie is busily making larger diapers for Journey. This time she's making fitted diapers without the waterproof cover (called "all-in-ones" or "AIO"). AIO's tend to leak more than diapers with separate covers, plus having just a few covers will be cheaper than using the waterproof material on all diapers, and the drying time is much faster.

After cutting out all the diaper layers (birdseye, velour (for the layer next to baby's skin) and super-absorbent microfiber terry) she was short one birdseye layer but had more of the terry, so it made sense to make a super-absorbent night time diaper. To make it easier to identify, Grandma embroidered it!

Baby Burp Cloths

I made these burp cloths for a baby shower this weekend. These colors match the baby's nursery - not the usual pastel pink & blue.

I used my new embroidery machine to stitch the baby's name. I made them just like the tea towels described in a previous post, but used birdseye for the main fabric.

Easter Pictures

Here's Journey in her Easter dress and bonnet (made by Grandma of course).

Isn't the setting cute? Her Great-Grandma has an Easter display in her yard every year and it's perfect for picture taking. Doesn't Journey look like a little DOLL??

Here's a family picture:
