My son is pretty much potty trained. We actually don't use any underwear yet, but I wanted to make some for him while we are waiting the 3 months out. These ones I used the Katrina's Quick Sew Pattern for diaper covers. I used a medium, thinking the waist measurements were going to work for if he had a diaper on underneath. I was wrong. They fit him snug. I doubt he can get them on and off himself now. Which is too bad, because they turned out SOO cute. I used an old tee for this project. I think I'll try out the XL next and see if they fit good or if those are too big. But at least then he'd grow into them.

Snap Flap Wet Bag

Once again, I found a pattern tutorial at Diaper Sewing Divas. This one is the Snap Flap Wet Bag. I cut a piece approximately 20x13, to end up with a bag 10x13. In this picture is 3 medium swaddlebees diapers(yes, I buy diapers too) stuffed with infant prefolds. I wanted to find a piece of fabric and found this one in my bag of give away fabric because it was too small for me to use. . Funny. It was the perfect size...Only a small excess from the strap.

Quick Snap Flap Wrap

Came across a new, very simple diaper pattern the other day. You can find it at Diaper Sewing Divas. It is the Quick Snap Flap Wrap. These diapers do not have snaps in the photo. The white diaper, I put snaps on before Isaac used it. The green I used a snappi. It is sherpa, so the snappi works well. The pattern uses no elastic. But, I think I'm going to add elastic to it on the inside before you fold the flaps over to help with containment.
