Link to some pictures.

I put up some pictures of my learning to sew. You should know first that I am learning to sew. When I was a teen my sister gave me a lesson on how to make a tee shirt and a simple pants with elastic. I gave up on sewing WAY back then. I have made a few ugly mittens for my son over the past 5 years. When my DD was born I started making diapers. I have made around 10 dozen diapers so far. They are getting better but I still have a LOT to learn. My wool soaker shorts are all made with me not knowing how to crochet. I only use one stitch over and over. I want to learn how to crochet enough to read a pattern but I haven't found the time yet. I dream of making beautiful clothes and diapers but for now this is as far as I have got.

I need to add Catharine is the reason I wanted to learn to sew. I saw her pictures on and wanted my baby to have nice diapers like hers. I also have to add thanks to Vicky Forba I don't think I will ever sew like them but I do dream of it. I met Vicky on the sew your own diapers group and found out she lives down the road from me. I am so lucky! She is a wonderful person!

Thanks! You are very kind! I can't say it is talent because I only know one stitch. I hope to find some free time soon and spend it learning how to crochet and knit. I will just make up my own thing until I find the time.
