When CJ was still not with us, we decided we would give cloth diapering a try. We figured if we hated it we would just switch to disposable. We really did not like the thought of so much waste going to the landfills, but also new that we would be new parents and it might be too much for us. Well, since we were going to be a bit non committal, we decided to make a bunch to test out before we invested in actual cloth diapers. Hence, where this pattern comes into play.
I wanted something that I could whip up fairly quickly and cheaply for a cover. Plus, I wanted it cute enough in case I just used them to look cute and not for function.
Again, I designed it while I thought CJ was a boy, and was all into the retro feel of the denim and red. The textured stitch pattern is to be soft on the bum while creating a very solid fabric.
In the end, we love cloth diapers and invested in some professionally made ones as well. It is nice for us that we have lots of variety. Keeps a very boring task a bit more interesting when you get to pick out a fun new pattern each time.
