Socks to baby pants Part 3 – The 5 min Bonds nappy cover hack [tutorial]

When my kids were babies, I always loved the look of Bonds brand nappy covers, (Bonds is an Australian brand so in case you don’t know what I am talking about these). As my kids wore cloth nappies I was especially drawn to the design because of all the room in the back for the nappy butt :), but at $11 per pair, a whole set of these was never in the budget.

I have since devised this hack which takes about 5 min and costs around $1 depending where you buy your socks.

Wool soaker in action

Draft and sew your own wool and fleece nappy covers

If you have a little one in cloth nappies/diapers and you were looking for a natural cover solution you may have come across wool covers (which are fantastic but I won’t go into all the benefits here – google it, you will be amazed) but then been bowled over by the price.
If you would like to have a go at making the cover above, check out my series on drafting a pattern and sewing a wool or fleece nappy cover on my other blog

Testing the Katrina’s Quick Sew Soaker Pattern

At the moment, I am feeling a little nostalgic and am going through a phase of using good old terry cloth squares, you know, the ones our mums used on us. I think they look just adorable, and my daughter doesn’t seem to mind the bubble but look 🙂

I am yet to trial the perfect cover for over the top of that cute bubble butt and the Katrina’s soaker pattern seem’s a popular one with the online nappy/diaper sewing community so I thought I would give it a go.
