I don't have my sewing machine yet (my husband's dad used to fix them for a living, so he's cleaning it up still), but I decided to practice my hand-sewing.
I'm using the two yellow receiving blankets I got and cut them up. I'm making wipes out of some, and then making doublers out of others.
For the wipes, I'm folding over edges and ironing them like that, then running stitch across the top.
For the doublers, I'm doing two layers of flannelette and one layer of terrycloth, sewing it like a pocket, then inverting them and sewing closed.
Seems to work OK so far.
My daughter is not a really heavy wetter, she rarely wets at night, and she won't nurse/play until she's changed anyhow.
So it is more for practice than anything else.
