My first homemade Cloth Diaper





I've been making cloth diapers for *Z* this week, and *T* thinks I'm crazy (what's new). I wanted to use cloth diapers from the beginning but couldn't find any I liked that weren't $15.00 a piece. And like I said *T* thinks I'm nuts, and wont even talk about them. I found the pattern for this one online, but when I tried to sew them I realized my grandmother's old sears sewing machine (it was given to me when she passed) needed some work. I got it back from the repair shop Thursday so now I can sew. One of the best parts of this is I have a bunch of flannel that a friend of mine had given me years ago when I was quilting, so they aren't costing me anything!!! And I really like that I will only have a load of laundry to wash, instead of another bag of garbage to pay someone to take to the landfill.

I just had to share the pictures with someone. When I tried to show *T* how cute they are and tell him how easy they were to make, he immediately started asking me if I could sew him some sand bags for his shooting bench. I had to laugh, just like a guy ....
He didn't even want me to get the sewing machine fixed to begin with because it cost as much as I could have bought a new one for. The repairman told *T* that my 40 yr old machine is probably worth four or five hundred dollars, unlike the cheaper plastic ones that they sell now that wont last very long. I'll be sure to make some things for *T* so he can justify me getting old relic fixed, but for now I have some more diapers to make.
