Ollie's new diapers!

Ollie has just about outgrown his infant prefolds, which makes me very sad since I worked so hard on them. I guess I'll just save them for any future fluffy bums down the road (way down the road LOL!).

I bought a dozen "capri" prefolds from Little Lions. I went with that size as I knew the regular ones would be too big and bulky. The measurements are almost identical to GMD's old rainbow-edged prefolds, which I think are the perfect size.

Of course, I had to dye them. Can't have boring white diapers, now can we? I went with amazon green, tropical green, and sunflower yellow.

I also experimented with a couple different techniques, but Blogger is being stinky and won't upload the remainder of my pictures. Here are the links, though.

Kinda looks like a dandelion

I took pictures of the whole process as well, which I'll post along with a tutorial for those wanting to give it a try. :)

Wow, I am yet again impressed by your creativity and motivation. I can barely get dressed some mornings, so making things is way down on my list of things to do. Though, maybe if I got a bit more creative, it would brighten things up around here. I wish you could come over and teach me to sew better.
