The Plushy Penguin Prefolds that live with us now. They were pillowcases and a couple of t-shirts yesterday.
We have a new family of six Plushy Penguin Prefolds that have come to live with us!
They cost $1.50 (actually less) plus an hour of my time to make.
The kids and I went yard saling yesterday afternoon and for 50 cents each I got two king size super plushy penguin pillowcases! I got two diapers each out of the pillowcases for a total of four penguin PFs made with that style. The fabric is so plushy that I just used the two layers already there without sewing anything in the middle.
With the scraps and a couple of t-shirts for 25 cents each, I made two embellished penguin PFs.
Now we have a set of six beautiful and super soft and plushy penguin PFs!
(I promise I'm just about finished talking about sewing diapers if my two or three readers are terribly tired of hearing about them!)

The yummy soft and squishy diaper set I made to trade with another cloth diapering mama who sews her own diapers from recycled materials!
Finally I got to make some girly diapers! I'm doing a trade with a mama from DiaperSwappers.com and I made up this set of four soft and squishy diapers for her. They are so little, 10x12, for her baby-to-be, much smaller than the big 13x16s I've been making for my son.
They are made from some flannel and old t-shirts my mom gave me.
For my end of the trade, I'm getting two Mickey Mouse prefolds made from an old bed sheet and two blue and brown flannel diapers made with a single strip of fabric each with the 10-minute prefold pattern! I'm so excited, and I'm so glad to trade with her. She and I have similar diapering philosophies -- it's supposed to be simple and cheap. Like myself, she has made her entire stash with recycled materials.
When I get my new diapers I'll show off her work.
