For those of you who missed the first post about Little Fishies Undies by Fishsticks Designs, you can catch it here. No, I'm not getting any kind of monetary compensation (or compensation of any kind, for that matter) for mentioning these, but I really, really love this pattern and I really, really love how these turned out.
I had one yard each of the blue, pink, and yellow, and I had half a yard of the print. I was able to get a dozen pairs. Had I planned ahead before cutting and figured out the best pattern layout, etc, I maybe could have gotten another pair or two out of my fabric. But I got too eager to get started to take the time to plan like that, so an even dozen it is.
It took me two days to get them cut out, pinned, and sewn--of course, that's with about 500 interruptions from the kids. Something about needing to eat and potty and other such trifles. Seriously, don't they understand anything about priorities? =)
Anyway, the skivvies are so bright and fun and cute, and she keeps trying to put them on and bringing them to me to put on her. I took a break from cloth diapering recently to try to get caught up on my other laundry, and now she refuses to wear cloth diapers again. So it looks like we'll be potty training sooner, rather than later. I may actually have a few months completely diaper-free before the new baby comes--I haven't had that in more than 8 years!! WOO HOO!!!
Any potty training tips for a toddler under two years old?
