I'll be honest: snap conversions are not my favorite project, but I did really enjoy this particular experience. Like everything in life: the more you practice something, the easier it becomes. I must have finally hit my groove with the snap pliers because this conversion went flawlessly. These diapers are 5 years old according to the owner and I expect they'll last another 5 now that the aplix has been removed.
The instructions for the custom longies included only measurements, so I was free to choose which wool would be best. (Squee!) I selected a beautiful 100% virgin lambswool sweater from Scotland. This sweater is a beautiful color, feels soft and luxurious, and smells like sheep heaven! I cannot rave enough about this wool and I am very jealous of baby H who is lucky enough to be wearing it.
