Today’s project is one I never thought I’d make…doll sized diapers. See, I had 4 sons, then I somehow ended up with a daughter (I mean, I know the mechanics, but I..sheesh people, we’re crafty over here..hush). Anyway, I knew when she started putting diapers on the Transformers that I did actually have a girl on my hands. So I’d been wanting to make these for awhile. I found this template over at Skip To My Lou and went digging through my scrap bins for anything that was big enough to use. Here’s the final product:
There were more, but Ree already absconded with them. The tutorial recommends using flannel, but as you can see, I just used whatever I had. Most of them are knit, with one being made of a microfleece and others made of cotton wovens. All turned out pretty well except the ones made from rib knit. Those stretched like crazy and turned out..not so great. I’ll definitely be making some more of these to go with the Bitty Baby we’re getting Ree for her birthday in a few weeks. Nice and easy, and quick to make up!
Are you playing along with me in busting your scraps this month? Feel free to leave a link in the comments section to your blog posts about it! I’d love even more ideas!
