I was thinking .. and talking with Margaret .. if I were to quilt it "In the Ditch," as they say .. but only go up-down-up-down-up-down diagonally along err .. every other row .. on the back .. it would look like a chevron pattern .. which is very trendy right now. Might be fun? I will probably back it in muslin to save some cash. =)
In other sewing-related news, I am thrilled to share that I made my first swim diaper today! It was exceptionally easy, thanks to a fabulous tutorial on a blog called SewMamaSew! Here is the link - Aquarius Swimmer ~ Swim Diaper Tutorial. It was my first time working with fold over elastic (FOE) .. and as you can see in my pictures - the leg holes are a bit uneven ... in part because of how unequally I stretched the FOE. I am excited to dig into my next swim diaper to experiment with the FOE a bit. I'll have to snap a photo of Thomas modelling the diaper in the morning, as he is fast asleep at the moment. =)
I think with attempt number two I will do a bit more pinning along the elastic to match it up (in length) to the sections of diaper that are elasticized ... =) It was fun, and it is very cute!!
