Doll Nappy sewing bee.

Post by Kaz » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:23 am

:wave: everyone.

The plan is to make as many doll nappies as we can to give to children during Cloth nappy week.

Who can help? Either sewing at home or coming to a sewing evening/day.

Please post here if you can help with a guestimate on how many you are prepared to make, anywhere between 1-100 would be great :mrgreen:

I've got 8 done and 2 more cut ready to do, they only take 5 minutes each really but haven't found even that this week :lol: but after that I'm out fo scraps apart from quilting cottons, which i just don't think will be as popular as pul or minky? but the only girly stuff i have is cotton...

I can't sew but In A Pear Tree was selling off scraps of pul minky etc if they are big enough I'd be happy to donate a bag to someone sewing them up?

I'd be happy to sew up scraps from Nat if they're big enough :) I'm out of fabrics here except cottons and they're just not as nappy-y looking, and most of the ones I've sewn up are boy-y

If I can get them all done I'll have about 20-25 I think. it's not like they take very long, but find it hard to get time to sew... can't do it when mr O is asleep cos the tiniest noise wakes him :roll: and when he's up and crawling around the place i'm jumping up every 5 seconds to remove something from his mouth or go and check on the suspicious silence :lol:
I think I'll just send them over to you, i have pass the parcel bags, when do you need them by?

when is cloth nappy week? :hide: I'll get them finished, I've been a bit busy with yarny stuff the last couple of weeks but should get some more time now that's under control :)

ETA: never mind, found it :) I'll get them finished this week and sent to you on monday of the next week. If I get time I'll see if i can dig up any more scraps, some might be patchwork doll nappies :lol:
