covers

  1. Home Decorating
    Can you still buy those fuzzy covers that people used to put over their toilet tanks? Yes, I know it's not 1965 and these are no longer considered "in", but our water is extremely cold, which creates a serious condensation problem on the tank. Tank covers may not be in style, but they work...
  2. Pregnancy
    Okay, so the Freecycle gods have smiled down upon us. We have been blessed with 5 plain ol' cloth diapers, 6 velcro fastened fitted cloth diapers, and 10 prefold diapers. Grand total is 21 diapers, 13 of which I should be able to adjust to fit baby as long as I need to. None of them require...
  3. Home Environment
    I have an oversized furniture set - couch, loveseat, chair, and ottoman. The set is 18+ years old and very well made. I have always turned the cushions, vacuumed, wiped up spills, etc. I have even had them steam cleaned twice. We have THREE dogs that have the run of the house; so what can I...

    I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for how to make a car seat cover for an infant car seat. My friend wants me to make her one for her baby that is due in December, and she wants to use fleece for the cover. I don't know how to go about this, I don't think it will be that hard to make...
  6. Home Environment
    I need to have slip covers made for my rocker/glider and ottoman and was wondering if maybe I could use sheets or a blanket if I find the right color I want? It won't be myself who's making them [don't know how to sew] but will be paying someone to do them for me. Right now I don't have a lot...

  9. For Sale or Trade
    I'm looking for some gently used cloth diapers to buy - even the Gerber prefold is fine with me. My daughter is 16 months old - 26 lbs. I am also in need of diaper pins and vinyl covers. Yesterday was my first try at cloth diapers and I think I'm going to like it!!
