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

DIY Nappy Sprayer diaper sprayer

DIY Cloth Nappy Sprayer for under $30

For those of you that don’t know, we have a (relatively) new baby at our house which means two things: 1. lots of lovely new things to sew (when I get some time), and 2. lots of poopy nappies. Sadly this post pertains mainly to the latter.

With the laundry downstairs in our new house, I needed to be able to rinse poopy nappies upstairs somehow but was suprised at how expensive a nappy sprayer was. So I turned to DIY with some great results.

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.
