For the Bebe

When I was first pregnant, this time around, I thought I might drive myself to insanity researching everything that I wanted to get for baby #3. After our 2 big moves a lot of our baby stuff has disappeared in garage sales. So I have a few needs. Okay, and a few wants. The obsession wore off as soon as nausea kicked in and I haven't thought much about anything until recently. I'm trying hard to keep my "what-can-I-make-for-the-baby?" obsession in check. Luckily, limited funds keeps me pretty well in check. I have a growing list though.
We're going slightly "greener" (and cheaper) this time around and going the cloth diaper route. Good grief the choices are endless!!! Luckily I know several people that are already veterans in this department so I've gotten as much input as I can.....more always appreciated if you must.
The last 2 days I have done little but make baby wipes. Remember Wyatt's Halloween costume? It was simply 2 yards of the softest white flannel ever, that I purposely did nothing to but cut a couple circles in. Yesterday I cut the whole thing up into squares and got to sewing. I found a couple other little flannel projects that were no longer in use and those quickly became wipes too. The white ones are SUPER soft. They were fast and fun to make.....and seriously cheap which is one of the top reasons I think I will enjoy using them.....and reusing them.
In case you're curious...I made both 8X8 and 4X8 sizes. Sometimes you just need a little wipe. :)

Perfect, I loved flannel for wipes and such. now they just make good dust rags. Did you ever settle on a cloth diaper?

I think that they would work very well for wiping hands after baiting a hook.

I think that they would make great hand wipes for using after you bait a hook.
