You are probably wondering what someone who can barely thread a needle is doing working on surging projects...
Well, I'll tell ya. My wonderful mother-in-law permanently loaned me her surger, after I borrowed it at her house to make myself some more wipies. It has been at my house ever since. I think that was last Thanksgiving. I FINALLY pulled it out, got it put back together, re-threaded, tensions set, etc and made the projects that have been sitting around for so very very long.
First off, there were the cotton/hemp terry wipies that I made for Stephanie's baby for a gift. (I am only about 5 months late here!) For good measure I am also throwing in a doubler and a couple of diaper inserts. I hope she doesn't laugh too hard at my inability to surge in a straight line!
The other project was (TMI alert!) the cloth pads I've been meaning to make since I got my period back after Katie was born. (Wow! That was like a year ago!) It's too bad I can't surge as well as the lady I got the pattern from. But as my darling pointed out, nobody is going to be looking at them! I made some out of the hemp/cotton, and a couple out of an old t-shirt, and a couple more out of an old pair of comfy (but too holey to wear anymore) sweatpants.
Here is a silly photo because I was so excited to get out of the house tonight - I went to JoAnn's and got among other things colored thread for the surger. And was proud of myself for being able to change them all out! (Did I mention I have next to no sewing skills, here!?!?)
