new dipes!!

a few weeks ago, i was very excited about miss mk going to the potty all by her herself, with almost no prodding or encouragement. i fretted that she was growing up too fast and that i wouldn't be able to make size "l" chloes toes dipes. http://www.chloetoes.com/store/Default.asp well, it was nice while it lasted. she hasn't shown any interest since.

today i made a sample size "l" dipe to see if it would fit. i had a bunch of pul from diaper cuts that i bought in february, lots of foe, some fleece, everything i needed. it turned out beautiful. i just love this pattern! the directions are great; the design is fabulous and the sizing is perfect. yay catherine! these are without doubt the best dipes i've ever made. they never stain! i can't say enough good things about them, as you can tell. :-)

molly's flat pants with extra molly pics

another mom from the nmsl list made these pants, directions are here: http://home.pacbell.net/kapleo/blog/domesticspherepatterns.html (bottom of page). i liked them so much i visited my stash and made some for mk. they were fast and fun, something i appreciate in a project right now. :-) the fabric was leftovers from various slings, so they were virtually free.

the model much preferred jumping off the coffee table to posing.

and, last but not least here are some nice recent molly shots::
