Tales of a Perfectionist

Life is more than a quest for perfection, a lesson I'm learning day by day.

Several months ago I had the priviledge of testing a new diaper pattern and made a few for BeBop.  They are medium diapers and fit my little guy very well.  He’s a skinny kid, and I had problems with other patterns being too baggy and hanging down to his knees.  I made these with front opening pockets that I can stuff with our old infant prefolds.   The  outer layer of top two diapers are made using old fat quarters I had and the bottom two are from a t-shirt.   The inner layers are all from an old set of jersey sheets I got at the thrift store.

A good friend of my is expecting a little girl very soon and I made these diapers for her.  I realized after mailing them off to her that you can’t tell the size from the picture.  They are about the same size as a pampers swaddler newborn diaper, but much cuter.  These are serged fitted diapers (my first!), with trifold lay in doubler.  The outer fabric on the top diaper is some that my friend gave to me several years ago.  The bottom two are made from a pajama top that she gave me for Christmas right before BeBop was born.  I wonder if she’ll recognize the fabric.  The inner is flannel from receiving blankets that I got at the thrift store.

If you are looking to make diapers I highly recommend getting the La Di Da Diaper pattern.  The instructions give multiple ways to finished the diaper and are very detailed with pictures for each step.
