My DIY cloth nappy journey!

Postby clothmama » Mon Aug 04, 2014 7:54 am

:sewing: Am very pleased with my first attempt :yahoo: It is an upcycled Tshirt one made from the free Rocket Bottoms NB pattern :)

I had 2 layers of tshirt and 3 of hemp with a thick towelling over the top:

There is a fleece lining to keep him dry :D
Image

Poppers on through just the 2 tshirt layers not the fleece:

Image

I used the channel method to do the elastic so attached that:

Then turned and topstitched and added the other poppers including a little cord one to clip the front down. There is an optin to add another popper to the wings if I end up with a tiny baby to make it go smaller but it looks pretty perfect NB size to me so I wont' bother now I can add later once we meet our little man :love: :pregnant: :bf:

Again a learning curve! Took ages but I'm sure I'll get quicker and quicker! Even Josh's 13 year old mates that came in were very impressed with it - they thought it was 'cool' :thumbsup: :giggle:

That's fab Tory, and using up old t-shirts is a great idea.

I know - this was a tshirt that was handed to Louis and was heading straight out to the charity shop as it was a bit faded and out of shape, the white one was one that J's mum got when she was out here and it ended up with a big stain on it but was still almost new material. Other bonus is that it is soooooo lovely and soft :love: It is making me so excited to meet my little guy who shall remain nameless :pregnant: :bw: :blw: :bf: :love: I have a fave tshirt of Louis that I'll try to get a cut out of next!
