My latest project

I was really bored with my plain old white prefolds.  So I got a bug up my bum and decided to dye them!  I used Dylon dye packs from JoAnn Fabrics.  The colors were Green, Vivid Turquoise, Cherry Red, Royal Blue, and Burnt Orange.  I'm not sure if the red is red enough, or if it is too pink.  I only dyed infant prefolds red (none of Zeke's size), so I'm going to let Jason decide about the color.

But anyway, here are the results:

All in a pile:

One of each color:

Tie-dyed birdseye flat diaper:

Dip-dyed flat diaper:
I think the flat diaper is definitely too pink, and I probably won't use it for Zeke.  I'm trying to think of something I could make for Sierra with it.  If I can't think of anything, I might just give it away.  Anybody want it?

I plan on buying more colors to dye some more diapers.  Yellow for both the baby's and Zeke's diapers.  Brown/tan, and navy blue for Zeke and the baby, if it's a boy.  I'm also going to buy pink and purple, in case the baby is a girl.  If not, I will save them and use them for something for Sierra.  I'm not sure if I will buy more of the red, or if I will try a different red.  I have to ask Jason his opinion first.

Anyway.  There's what I spent last night and most of today doing!!

i think the prefolds are red enough. at least they look red enough in the picture. beside, they're next to his bum and under his clothes...i don't think his bum will be confused. For that flat one, you could make a purse for sierra, but i think you've mentioned she has enough bags, but maybe you could help HER make it. like a craft or sewing project. she could even make it as a gift for someone else...
there's my take.
