Diaper Conversion and Custom Longies

Among this week's projects are a BumGenius diaper conversion and a pair of custom longies for baby H.

 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.

  1. Yippeee! I cannot wait for them to arrive! Too bad H is our last one. These diapers will need to find another home when she is done.
