As you can probably guess, my snap press arrived today. :) Wazoodle rocks! I just ordered the thing on Monday, and when I got out of the shower this morning (at 7:30!), my husband told me it had been delivered. So I spent nap time today doing some sewing.
*Edited: Those pictures I took yesterday were horrible, so I took new ones today.
Here is the beginning of the newborn stash. :) Note how perfectly those snaps match! That was a total fluke. They send a few snap colours of their choosing, and I already had this diaper cut out and partly assembled when the snaps arrived. I couldn't believe the pink was identical!
...I couldn't resist a side-view. Look how little those leg holes are!
I put my hand beside it to give you an idea of the teeny-tiny-ness of it. :)
And the squishy inside...
My next major purchase will be a new serger. I've just about had it with mine. It eats things and spits them out. It skips stitches. And no matter how I adjusted the tension, my looper stitches AND my needle stitches were wonky. (Go ahead, look up close - I dare you!). I love how easy and quick serged diapers are, but I'm tempted to turn and topstitch, because the serging is so sloppy.
I used the free Darling Diaper newborn pattern (with the snap-down for the umbilical cord). The outer is just a lightweight cotton knit. The inner is microfleece. And the hidden soaker is two layers of warm and natural batting. I think I might make an extra lay-in soaker for some added absorbancy. I can't remember how much a newborn pees. :)
