Adventures in Cloth Diapering- Part two
So today mom and I headed to Hancock's to buy fabric for cloth diapering. It was a big sale day, and we were able to get the waterproof fabric for the outside of the diaper for 40% off. I am super excited and extremely nervous at the same time. Not about whether I can handle cloth diapers, but whether I can pull off making them. Now let me first say, that I have absolutely no doubt that mom can make them. She is an amazing seamstress or sewing expert. I mean have you seen the pictures of my sister and I in our handmade dresses?? Or what about Elizabeth's baptismal gown?? My mom is amazing!! Sewing with Nancy has nothing on my mom. However, it is my own skill that makes me nervous. Now any day of the week, I can handle about any crocheting project you throw at me. I can bake, cook, and make hair bows like a pro...but the sewing machine and I have had our differences. Some days I can sew away, no issues...others I would like to throw the **** thing out the window (this happens more than I would like). Sorry for the editing, but it's definitely my experience. But I'm determined to master the art of sewing, hopefully that will mean diapers too and not just easy curtains or pillowcase dresses. ;) Most importantly, say a little prayer for my mom, as she is the one who will have to deal with this crazy pregnant lady in the midst of trying to conquer my arch nemesis- the sewing machine.
