La-Di-Da Diapers Grand Opening

Photobucket


Not too long ago I tested the La-Di-Da Diaper Pattern. I loved making these diapers up. They were quick and easy and Jennifer has done an amazing job writing directions easy enough for beginners but great for experienced seamstresses as well. There are some ideas for sewing that I hadn't thought of myself that makes sewing snapping pocket diapers easier and quicker. With my two kids I was able to test the small, medium and large diapers. It is a hip snapping diaper. This has been my favorite style of snapping diapers easy to snap and get nice and tight. I find with side snaps they are too far on the side to snap easily. The front snaps are nice, but is hard sometimes to get nice and snug. The La-Di-Da diapers are trim fitting with a scooped belly fit, yet the rise is very generous. The medium fit both my 8 month old baby (17lbs) and my 2.5 year old 27 lb son, comfortably. The diaper fits below the belly and "hugs" the hips. I wouldn't put pants on my baby when he was in these diapers just because they are so cute. They still are the ones I grab first in my diaper stash. And it's been almost four months since I've tested these diapers.

I love how those diapers fit them! Danica is now potty trained, so no more testing diapers for me. :( But yay for her going potty!

I thought about this pattern, but decided not to, because I knew she was getting close.

I was wondering if you could answer.... I'm interested in sewing my own cloth diapers and I'm getting a little frustrated. I see people making their own with cute fabrics and stuff like old T-shirts, and I'm trying to figure out why some one would spend the money to make the pocket diapers (what I'm interested in) out of materials that are not water proof, just to have to turn around and cover it up (and add more bulk) with a water proof(ish) diaper cover. I'm starting to wonder if I'm just not getting somethings. Do you NEED a diaper cover so pee doesn't leak through or what?
