Last night I found some fabric that I already had and set out to make a dress. I had so much trouble with the gathering that I finally got frustrated and went to bed. Today I finshed it and it's not as good as I imagined, but it will be fine for a playdress. I couldn't get her to stand still for a picture, so you only get to see the back.
Whenever I'm getting fabric cut at Joann's they always ask me what I'm making and they often look surprised or confused when I say I'm making diapers. Today the girl asked me if I made up the idea by myself, and then if I sometimes throw them away when they get dirty. I told her no and said that a lot of people even sell them used, like on ebay. She looked incredulous and also like she might throw up. I think it's funny that most of those who cloth diaper don't think twice about buying used diapers but the general public is so dismayed about it.

my mom used cloth with us, and she seemed dismayed when both of my sons became pampers boys. i think the real reason they are pampers babys is that i heard one too many storied from my mom about rinsing poop into toilets! Seriously, i think mothers who can make the commitment to cloth are amazing. i did try them with my first son, who promptly got a rash. i gave up. good luck, and what a neat idea to make them yourself, they would look better than the plain old white our service offered.
