Spring/Summer sends me on a creation crusade.
There's something about the season that makes me want to be creating something new or transforming something yuck in to something better...
I made some Veggie Chili yesterday.
It's normally a winter meal for us, but I had a craving for it - and boy was it good!
MMMM, I love anything garlic!
I tried my hand at making cloth diapers today.
I have made 3 sucessfully.
1 for Ethan, and 2 for Evie.
I only have pictures of Ethan in his right now, but I will post some soon of Evie.
I made Ethan's out of recycled clothing - Karl's sweatshirt and my old little black dress.
It's actually my own design. Totally made it up myself. I completely surprised myself in making it not only functional but not half-bad looking.
When I take pictures of Evie's I'll show you the inside.
But, on the inside there are what we're calling "soakers" aka rectangular pieces of fabric layered, and sewn together.
I put a piece of elastic going cross-wise (horizontally) over the crotch to hold them in, and then put a soaker on top of that to protect their "who-has" as we call them. hah.
If you can't picture it, I'll show it tomorrow.
(I am also adding velcro instead of pins)
