Upcycled Cloth Diapers & Covers


Bustling around lately, maybe it's my coffee or the change in weather, whatever it is, I can't stop. Let me begin telling you that my family has two generations of cloth diaper wearing. Recently, I got a chance to make some diapers for a dear friend.  Being an upcycler, I used t-shirts, retired bath towels, and used, thin hospital blankets. I did some looking around and found Very Baby tutorial.
 By changing the measurement in the tutorial, I made 3 sizes, which are newborn, baby, and toddler. I got an idea for the measurements from Green Mountain Diapers .


For the diaper covers, I used wool sweaters and pattern from Ottobre Design 6/2010. Very Baby diaper cover tutorial was useful, along with their patterns.

Finished? Not yet, you have to lanolize those covers, leaving your hands soft. It's like a little gift for you, as a mother.


Now you are done!
