50's Sewing Machine-Thrift Store Find

My new (old) three dollar sewing machine. Sews like a dream, so quiet and smooth it's unbelievable. I am still getting used to it's quirks, we are in the getting-to-know-you stage.

I♥Recycled Diapers

I♥Recycled Diapers, originally uploaded by Hilary{pip&mouse}.

More recycled tee diapers! This is pattern of my own design, sewn up in purple and red tee-shirts bound in scarlet FOE. This is a SWEET & bright little diaper and I'm wild about it! More pictures of this diaper can be found on my photostream on flickr.
In fact, Dagny and I are going thrifting in Belfast today to look for tee-shirts. The best shirts are cheap, big, soft, & have a cute design on the chest. KWIM?

I LOVE comments and questions so feel free!

Recycled T-Shirt Diaper 5

Recycling tee-shirts into diapers is my latest passion. This was a too-small thrift store tee I'd been hanging onto since the screen print was so wonderful. I used the mama bird pattern, then I modified it to have cross-over aplix tabs in front.
This pattern is one of my faves, the fit is really trim & the instructions are thorough.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
