    I'm impressed that you don't have even a little draw up from your stitching, nice job!

    Absolutely cute. Are they made from cotton diapers? Looks like they are.

    Thank you so much for your nice comments. They are made from prefolded cloth diapers. So easy to do.

    I would love to try to make these. Do you just leave the embroidery showing on the back? And then do you just add coordinating material on the bottom? As you can tell, I'm not good at just looking and being able to figure out how to copy it. - Cynthia

    Glad you want to try these. Yes, I just have the embroidery showing through to the back..........but the pads are usually folded in thirds with the design part up, so you really don't notice the back. Yes, I just add coordinating fabric to the bottom. The ones that are posted, I serged (or sewed) a piece to the bottom back, turned it over to the front, pressed under about a half inch and then sewed. Before I sewed the top, I tucked under the ends and sewed up the sides of the contrasting fabric also. You can use decorative stitches in you'd like. I've also done applique ones, which are done the same way. Good luck.

    i don't have an EMB machine, but i made a bunch of them, with flannel and ribbon.

    I think i may do like you suggested,Jo Ann, and try applique, maybe raw edge..i like the fluffy chenille look when washed!
