Thanks to Paula for this Frugal Baby Tip!

OK, first I NEVER sew. My mom got me a sewing machine years ago and the only one who uses it ever is our nanny. I haven't sewn since home-ec about 23 years ago. No kidding.

Well, I took 2 old flannel receiving blankets and I traced a Plushie diaper than we have cases of old diaper service diapers because my husband buys the ones that are too ratty for the diaper service to use anymore for his work.

So I cut the shape out of two layers of flannel and one diaper and I layed them all together and stiched a regular stitch around it, trimmed it then stiched a utility stich around the edge. It is so cute!!

I used a print flannel on one side and a solid on the other. I am going to put it on her as soon as she wakes up and see how it works. I think I might ask my nanny if she could help me put elastic along the legs.
Paula (so excited, should I wake Koral up?)
