Cloth Covered Keister

Lately I've been trying to figure out what I would like to take on as my hobby. I've thought about photography, knitting, sewing... you get the idea. I need a creative outlet. While I haven't made up my mind yet, I've been attempting to try my hobbies in question. So my first venture was sewing. JoAnn Etc always sucks me in with their bright fabrics and cute prints. I will admit that I have diaper envy, and I've got it bad. So cloth diapers were going to be my first project. I found a free pattern online, some cute fabric and a wonderful lady who agreed to help me. Let's call her... mom :)

While these are far from perfect I had a lot of fun. There is no way I could have done these on my own. The elastic was tough! My mom was a huge help. She gets all the credit for sewing the elastic into the legs. Thanks for all your help mom!

ps. does any of the fabric look familiar? 10 points to the poster who can identify the familiar fabric and what it was used for!
