i find it so incredibly attractive when someone is really good at something, like you can play the violin? damn son. you’re a really talented dj? good for you! i don’t care if you talk to me about quantum physics for an hour straight if i can see the passion in you at some point in that hour i’ll think “whoa, this is really hot.”
On the right is the one that came with my tots bots v4 obviously not perfect but good enough for a wet wipe if they turn out to be useless as liners which I can’t imagine the would do.
Haven’t hemmed them as I really don’t see the point especially on black fabric but I’m planning on raiding primark for childrens fleecy jammies after christmas and I’ll defo hem those to make them look a bit more professional!
Going to be making my own terry cloth squares for when babe is about 8wks+ and the peeing starts to become a bit more uncontrollable till then I’m planning on using muslin squares with a motherease airflow wraps. I’ve yet to buy the terry cloth as I’m waiting on funds and the suppliers getting back to me.
So what I’m doing in the mean time is making my own fleece liners from old pjs! They’ve already been washed about a million times and I have heard so much praise for fleece liners as being great at wicking moisture away from little bottoms and keeping babe dry and secure.
Hopefully will be able to use them from newborn all the way through! And the best bit it they’re no sew because fleece doesn’t fray or get fucked like most fabrics :)
I’ve basically started with two pairs of tescos fleeced jammy bottoms I think they were two for £8 last winter and since I got s/m not xs they no longer fit Rowan so upcycling them seemed like a great idea.
I’m just unpicking all the stitching to maximise the amount of fabric I get from them and then laying the one prebought liner I do own on the fabric and cutting round it. I’m just making squares instead of shaped ones since they can then be used as wet wipes and tbh the ones shaped like panty liners kinda creep me out…
I’m really contemplating not bothering! I know I sound like a grinch but I realy don’t see how we will fit it in!
OH and I are finalising wedding plans and paying off registrars and venue, clothing, rings, photographer and a meal for family in upcoming month, MIL will be arriving from SA on the 22nd of October and will need whole new wardrobe, OH and I are saving the date to be married on the 29th of October, Baby will be born on 3rd of Nov… Then it’s basically Christmas.
I mean when am I supposed to fit any shopping in let alone find a spare penny!
Do you think it’s cruel not to celebrate babys first xmas? Especially when MIL has traveled so far or will she understand?
