Other Crafts...or why my posts are so random!

Ok, my apologies for no paper projects lately. I am otherwise occupied BUT am still crafting...just with fabric this time. My second grandbaby is due to arrive in early December and I am scrambling between working full time and starting university to make some special things for baby and parents.

Project # 1 - This project was a better-have-an-alternative-plan project. You will see a little further down why!
I found a wonderful YouTube video series that makes these disposable diaper "cakes" without waste. Nothing in this glued down so the whole item can be torn apart and used for baby. The only throw-away part are the "axles" which are cardboard tubes from wrapping paper. Here is the link to Thom's Facebook account which will also direct you to her blog and YouTube channel:

Project # 2 - This is the original project which is quickly falling behind schedule - hence the above project. The internet is chock full of different free diaper patterns so I settle on this one...for now.
The outer shell is made from PUL ( do not ask for the technical terminology!) and the inner layer is made using microfleece. PUL is a fabric that provides a waterproof barrier so that you eliminate the need for outer pants. When used as the outer layer of fabric it's a cloth replacement for the disposable diaper! LOVE IT!

This first one has too large of legholes for a newborn so I made adjustments in diaper # 2.
Number 2 is closer to what I want to see in a newborn diaper so I will play with it some more and post number 3 when it is done.

Happy Crafting!!!
