Erm, I made reusable sanitary pads out of some old towels 2 weeks ago, can I enter those?

I have also got a single curtain I bought with the intention of making a kiddie skirt, I might have to crack on with that!

I don't think I'll have time for anything like this but am fascinated to see what other people come up with. Please post lots of photos.

The Fetchmeet now has three dates when 6 people cam make it and none where everyone can join in - 13th, 14th, 20th.

What to do or the best?

Been chatting to Winelegs and maybe the end of the month is too soon. Would extending the deadline to Easter weekend be better?

For the reuse challenge so far.

Cut out towel, pul fabric, cotton fabric to your chosen size. Make rectangular piece with cotton fabric, then place pul on towel wherever you choose. Zigzag/serge edges, then lay cotton across the middle width ways, stitch in place. Add Kam snaps and hey presto a reusable sanitary towel, that dries super quickly after washing. I have 6 more cut ready to sew. And 4 or 5 I made last month.

I will be making other things too this month :)

And once all the stuff is prepped ready they take no time at all to sew. I've completed another one now (well 3 mins ago!)

Would you like some nappies back when I'm* done with them?
Admittedly, most of the little lambs are on their last legs...the blue have died, the pink are on their way out...

*Squeak, not me. She's resolutely refusing to potty train. Little ****!!!!
