Home-made Wipes and my new Diapers!!!

I am SO excited about the new wipes I made! I took some receiving blankets I got on super-sale, cut them into 5x8 rectangles. Each blanket made about 15-20 wipes!

I made a cardboard cut-out of a wipe, so I could easily cut around it:
All my wipes cut up (pre-sewing)
Sewed up the edges:
Made my wipes solution and put it in a flip-lid container:
Ahhhhh...Samuel's diapers! I LOVE THE WAY THIS LOOKS...and how it makes me feel!Fresh diapers (but not for long!)

I love not worrying about having to buy more diaper and wipes every month! Plus, it just feels good (in some weird quirky old-fashioned way)!

Hey Grace!

I came across your blog from facebook. I think cloth diapering is great. I have a few friends that do it! I would totally do it if we had a washer and dryer! Living in an apartment makes it rough! Way to go!!

I love your idea of the flip top lidded container! You did GREAT!

The pictures of the diapers are so sweet .....the "diaper season" of life.

God is blessing....

I have been considering using cloth wipes as well. We just got our fuzzi bunz in the mail today! It is so surreal that we are going to have a baby to fill those diapers soon! I'll have to get the recipe for the solution from you.

Hey, Grace!!!!

Do you just use the prefolded diapers??? I have some Kushie's from Walmart, but I decided they weren't worth the money to purchase any more. (I only have 5 diapers, and that doesn't last too terribly long!)

Ohhh...and how are the homemade wipes working out???
