Yesterday was May 14th. Not a very important date, unless you are the mother of a daughter who has been told at an ultra sound that this is one of your due dates!! Muff did say when I last spoke to her that the following two scans negated this date. But a Nana can hope, can't she..

The material that I used on the burp cloths and bibs above I have had since Sparkle was a little boy! It pays to be a
Pictured above are the small and extra small size of the cloth nappies. They have velcro for easy opening and closing, and a pad which attaches inside. I bought the waterproof material at Spotlight, totally unsure as to if it was going to be suitable. I'm still not sure that it is waterproof enough.

For any one interested in making these cloth nappies, this is the pattern I used. I bought in on the internet through eBay. It is called 'The Nappies' Lo15, put out by 'Favorite Little Things' pattern designs. It is very easy to follow, and I will be making some more if they are needed.
