March FINALE! Cloth Diapers

So the March Project kind of got lost in some other good opportunities this month, but that's ok. As a matter of fact, that's exactly how this whole thing is suppose to work....see a need, look for a way to help. It's been very inspiring to see how so many people have used very unique and creative ways to reach out to others this month.

Nonetheless, we have been working on cloth diapers behind the scenes around here. We are fortunate enough to have received a very generous donation of "new" diapers in need of minor repair, and have been working our way through the bins a bit at a time. As a matter of fact, my girls have devoured the opportunity to be behind the machine! :) And this project has provided a perfect, simple and repetitive Home Ec. lesson that has really helped develop their skills and confidence. One of those win/wins!

When the diaper basket we are working on right now is finished, we will have diapers going to little ones in need of them this month in Ethiopia, Ghana and China! Very exciting!

Cloth Diapers are one of the most practical items that can be sewn for others, so we will indeed showcase them again in the future, with more details, pattern walk thrus and suggestions.

Stay tuned....I'll announce our April project tomorrow!!! :)
