Happy Monday! Or maybe not for some of us stay-at-home moms; the man left for work and you have to deal with tantrums on your own! I’m hoping your days are going better than you had planned. I wanted to drop a post about my DIY Cloth Diaper Covers that I have made and use on a daily basis.
To see my post about cloth diapers, click here. Cloth can run you quite a bit of money, and it can be really easy to get lost in the rabbit hole that is PRINTS. I love prints, and I would definitely be one of those moms that spends oodles of money on diapers if we had the spare change. We do well as a family with one income, but there’s always something more important budget wise than cute diapers (is there?).
My solution was to DIY them!
After a fair amount of research I found the following two free patterns:
I purchased one yard of gray PUL (water-resistant) fabric for the inside layer ($20); and used cotton fat quarters ($10), which come in a variety of cute prints, for the outside layer. I purchased KAM snaps ($10) and snap pliers ($20) directly from their website, and decided to stay gray with everything and use gray 100% polyester thread ($6). I picked up some universal sewing needles ($5), and I was set to go!
Total cost for 10 DIY cloth diaper covers
$71, that’s just over $7 per cover. The Best Bottoms covers I have go for about $19 per and the Buttons covers I have are $11.50 per cover. Additionally, I got to pick out what prints I wanted diapers of. I’ll show you everything I picked out.
So there they are!
Let me know in the comments if you have any questions. Leave a link to some diapers you have made! You can do it, mama!
Until next time,
