Alright, so today it is painfully obvious that I should just stick with photography:) I’m not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination. The pattern looked simple enough (and it really is), I’m just terrible with the sewing machine:)

Anywho, here’s my attempt to sew my own fitted diaper. I think my end product is usable but we’ll see! I found the pattern at Fern and Faerie and made a few modifications on the shape (using my monkeysnuggle fitted as a guide) but followed the same basic premise as the instructions describe. 4 layers of cotton t-shirt material and soakers made out of 8 layers of t-shirt material (in contrast to my purchased monkeysnuggles which is organic bamboo and cotton and other super absorbent materials..)

All in all not a bad attempt, if I was just better with the sewing machine. Plus I dont have a serger which I think would have made this easier. I’ll have to try again when I go to my moms since she has one.

  1. way to go! i wish i was enough of a cd’ing pro to try such a thing!

  2. Looks great for a first try! You should have seen some of mine, they looked awful. The first fitteds were made out of old tee shirts and took forever to dry!

    • Renee – Thinking I’ll just stick to buying them from you guys:) Much easier, cuter, and more functional! The t-shirt material took FOREVER to dry!
