Haircut, Part 1.

Okay, so I took some before pictures to remind myself the next time that I go and get the bright idea to cut my hair, that I probably shouldn’t! I’m sooo scared. I NEVER like my hair right after I cut it and I most often like it right before… Why do I do this to myself??

Okay… Before Pics:

I do admit the back is longer then the rest, but hey, that’s nothing I can’t fix (and have several times before since the “bet” lol) with a pair of scissors…

Any haircut suggestions?

I will keep you posted :-*

Side Snapping Option!

In my original directions I left it up to you all where you’d like the snaps to be on the side snapping version of the Little Starter Cloth Diaper Pattern. I feel that one of the main advantage of ss (side snapping) diapers is that they can be tailored to fit your baby. If you have a larged thighed, skinny waisted baby chances are you would stagger your snap postition in an arrangement something like this:

Inversely, if your baby needs more room in the waist, you’d stagger the other way.

If you are making the diaper for a newborn, gift, or “average” baby, you can use my suggested snap placement. Available to download here! Send me pictures 🙂

New Snaps!

I traded some of my patterns for a whole bunch of SNAPS! Aren’t they beautiful colors?
Molly liked them so much that she helped me pick some out some more snaps…
to finish off her new dress with…

Finally, her hat has a matching dress 😉

Aren’t they cute?

… little monkeys 😉

Sometimes the oldies are the goodies.

So my first Pattern release was my newest pattern and I’m happy to say that it’s been a hit and I’ll be printing more this weekend as I’m just about sold out in one week. I’m also happy to announce that I am working on releasing the second printed pattern. My diaper pattern. It’s the first “kids” pattern I made, dating back over two years ago. There will be instructions on how to make FOE covers, as seen here (these were Molly’s that I sewed up before I knew she was a “she” and I had a chance to meet her eye to eye), Fitted diapers, and AIO all in one pattern.

I am so excited about this one! Hope you are too.

It’s 3am, I must be lonely.

So I was in Joann’s yesterday morning… no I was not buying fabric, thank you! I was in there for my Mom, she is looking for a tiny piece for their living room and she actually picked up some lovely lampshades for their chandelier… lol… now that I’ve over-explained it you are totally not convinced that I wasn’t buying something for me… well… I wasn’t! Now that we have that cleared up, back to the story… Where was I… oh yea, I was in Joann’s and my MOM was checking out and one of the cashiers stopped me and said you have a baby in there? (I always get stopped when wearing my yellow wrap sling) So I walked over to show her and she said oh how cute and all the obligatory baby statements. then she went on to say she “was watching an interview with the girl in Spiderman who has a 2 month old and she said the baby has been sleeping through the night since the day she took her home form the hospital.” I said something to the effect of “oh wow” all the while knowing that since Molly has been nursing on demand since she was born (at home, thank you very much) that she has never done over a 4 hour stretch…

Well, last night Molly slept from 10:00pm till 3:15am! I am so thrilled.
