Make better Fitted Diapers with your NykiBaby One Size Diaper Pattern!

Here are a few little goodies to help you make better fitted diapers with my pattern:
*Single row of snaps. Fewer snaps to set is a good thing!

*My pattern directs you to not trim off any fabric in the leg elastic areas. I've started trimming of 1/2", just like I do through the rest of the diaper. I am liking this way better.

* New contour templates. These fit the diaper so much better. You can trim off up to 1/4" on these when you serge, if you like. I just barely skim them.

Garden Update!

Our lovely little patio garden.

Our yellow squash plant is large and in charge.
This zucchini plant has been named "The Boss." He is accompanied by his trusty sidekick, Rogue Butter Lettuce. The wind killed off all the other lettuce. This little guy is a survivor. Soon he will be a salad.

Gettin' figgy with it, is our dwarf fig tree. In our little herb garden, I've got rosemary, itty-bitty parsley and basil, and The Pho/ Tacos container with green onions and cilantro.

Early girl and Brandywine tomatoes. Don's ask me which is which. 

My poor, poor little eggplants. They refuse to grow. I went to Lowe's today to get more eggplants, but they didn't have any Japanese or Chinese eggplants.  :( Boo!

Another 'mater. He is huge compared to his peers. I've also got some green beans and wax beans in there with him.

My tiniest tomato plant. He was homeless up until last week when I picked all of our spinach, and tossed it into a delicious Tuscan chicken soup. He also has some beanie buddies.

"The Replacement." The pepper I started from seed was not growing, so I bought this guy.
