Creating Adorable Baby Bums: Cloth Diapers
Here are directions to make super cute diapers out of t-shirts. How’s that for a reclaiming project? The best part is you can put the fun saying or cute part of the shirt right onto babies bum!
How about making your own felted wool covers out of second hand sweaters?
Need to know where to find diaper making fabrics and kits, here’s a link. (Stay with us after the jump to find out more about the adorable diaper in the photo.)
If you’re not inclined to sew your own, check out these adorable cloth diapers I found in an Etsy shop, Monkey Snuggles Diaper Company. Let another crafty Mom create yours.
I’ve discovered that just about any fabric or cast off piece of clothing can be used in diapering. Think about how cute your babies bum will be with a diaper made with an old pair of jeans or sporting your college Alma Mater sweatshirt.
The photo is a Monkey Snuggles Diaper One Size Pocket Diaper I ordered for a friend of mine to try out on her new baby girl. This is made with a super cute WET RESISTANT fabric so a separate cover is not needed. This diaper is absolutely adorable, it sizes down very nicely and grows with baby so these one size are the most economical of fitted diapers. This one has a lovely fuschia liner that is very soft to touch and a combination of velcro style fastener and snaps for sizing up. I for one am thrilled to see such a fun print in a wet resistant nappy.
