    I'm bored, so I thought I would share my 'job' other than taking care of my kids. I make cloth diapers and dye fabric:

    I have a love-hate relationship with the diapers.... i really can't sew anything but them, so I tend to have 'issues'. Esp. with my ancient sewing machine. [​IMG] I do love dyeing the fabric though! I use organic bamboo velour for all of my material. Just thought I'd share! [​IMG]

    My NEW sewing machine a Singer is ALWAYS giving me issues. Never had this much problems with my Brother.

    NICE tie dyes!

    Great job!

    Those are awesome Georgia! My mother would flip. She adores tie-dye, as do I. Very cool idea with the organic velour. Have you tried selling them on Ebay?

    Love those swirls! Great dying job.

    I made a few cloth diapers too, and only sew a teeny bit.. my ancient singer gives me too many problems, I just get frustrated.
