Recently, I made a friend. She's a friend of a friend that I visited when I was on vacation. While we were all swimming together with our little ones, it was brought to my attention that she was interested in cloth diapers. Since I'm a cloth diaper fanatic, I quickly told her all the best brands and about how well cloth works for me.
Enter Facebook. My friend's friend who I friended on facebook (Yikes!) is an amazing--no AMAZING--photographer and posted some pictures of her little one online. They were beautiful pictures except for that little bit of paper peeking out from underneath a onsie. Yeah, so I'm totally biased against ugly, disposables. I said, "Girl! You need to get some cloth on that baby's bum!" and then offered to send her some diapers to try. Since I didn't have money to buy some for her I made some. Guess what? She LOVED them! So she ordered five more diapers and one more cover. Her specifications were pinks, purples, greens, and yellows. I asked her about her daughter's nursery theme, and she said, owls, birds, and trees. Then I stalked her photos online and found pictures of her daughter's nursery so I could get a feel for it.
And that's when I made this little guy for her--Oh I love him to death! He, along with five, coordinating diapers were made in about a week of moments stolen here and there when my daughter was happily engaged in her food, or her kitchen playset, or in her crib, sleeping. Sewing projects can be challenging with a toddler running around, but with those stolen moments and a kitchen table full of my crafts at all times, I was able to finish her order.
I was pretty pleased with the result. When she got the diapers, she immediately posted pictures from her phone of her daughter wearing them on FB so I think that she was too. That makes me happy. Very happy.
