I've briefly mentioned my interest in cloth diapering at different points on this blog. Since this blog is mainly about crafts (although, lately it hasn't been about much of anything since I've been so bad about posting!!!), I haven't gone into that whole area of my life. And, to be honest, I'm a little intimidated by the whole thing and don't want to make a loud, public commitment to cloth diapering only to find that I just can't do it. I'm going to try, don't get me wrong, but we'll just have to see how it goes.
Anyway, with that disclaimer, let me share with you my cloth diaper wipes! I think I'll use these regardless if the cloth diapering thing sticks (hopefully, no pun intended), because they seem to make so much sense and will help save some extra money. Plus, I think they actually clean much better than their disposable cousin. Fabric (in my case, terry cloth) just seems to be able to grab the grime a little better to keep that little bum clean. I haven't experimented with a solution yet, but am planning on using this recipe from Elizabeth Carroll's blog. So, without further ado - here are my first diaper wipes made using my lovely serger.
After my last experience, I am a little shy about changing the thread again, but I think the brown thread actually is kind of fun! I'll either spray on the solution or soak these in a container for easy access and use. Now I just can't wait for that baby bum to arrive so I can try them out!
