You could probably sew in a zipper without the zipper foot but it'll just be more difficult and might not look quite so pretty. You'll probably find that a regular foot will be sitting on top of the zipper as you sew along the tape part of it (sorry if that doesn't make much sense- the zipper will be to the right of the line you are sewing, but still under the presser foot) and as a result there isn't as much pressure on the layers that you are actually sewing through because the zipper is holding the presser foot up. I'd probably still give it a try though
And for washing PUL, I've always washed on hot in the washer and then tumble dried too without any problems
Love this thread we bought a stokke cot come crib and i am making sheets for it also making wipes
I knitted a blanket when i 1st got pregnant a difficult one so it kept my mind at bay i had a MC in aug and kept worrying it would happen again so the blanket def stopped me focusing on that so much i am now 20+1 have knitted booties and working on another blanket
Also making a changing mat
Does anyone have any fleece outer patterns to recommend?
I've found that fleece pants on the outside of my regular PUL night-stuffed pockets keeps the 4am-6am leaks at bay so I'm going to make some. Much cheaper option than buying new night nappies
I was thinking little shorts or bloomer style would probably do the trick (so pull overs), unless anyone has a wrap style they would recommend?
Lots of wahms use this pattern for their products (I'm pretty sure it's what Pumpkin Pants uses, as well as a few others I've seen). It's a quick sew and super easy- the only thing you may want to change is the rise on it. If you are trying to fit it over a night diaper, you might want to increase the rise a bit since I find that when using them over a well stuffed diaper, they are a tad short in the rise. hth
