First hand made Pocket Diaper

Damn it I'm so happy! I finally made a pocket diaper!  I had been putting it off over and over.  It took me 3 hours to do this diaper but I was very slow at the machine.  I kept stopping and re-checking everything. I was so nervous because I wanted this diaper to be useable right from the get go. I felt like, by the end of the top stitching, that this was so easy and that I'm excited to make more!

I just quickly velcro'ed it together for picture sake.  It does come out even, trust me! =]

so soft microchromis against Colton's butt! Still some extra thread hanging around. LOL.

My worse fear was the elastic in the leg area. I contemplated on how I was going to do it.  I think it turned out pretty well.

Anyways, I'm so excited that I caught on so fast and I am seriously looking to make more + more. Still need the practice.  The machine screws with me all the time so I have to keep stopping and recheck everything.  Old ass thing. 
Okay. Its 2:30 am. I better head to bed. Eesh !
