i love the tool one.. may i ask how you did these? what pattern did you use?? i love sewing and i want to make some fitteds.. what materials did you use?? will these work with snappis?? i love snappis
I used the Rocket Bottoms OS Fitted pattern. The pattern designer is my sister, but honestly, this diaper fits my almost 2 year old the best out of all I have.
For the pirate, dragon, and guitar diapers, the main body of the diaper is made from 3 layers of flannel. The soaker is a snake style soaker, approximately 26 inches long by 3-3.5 inches wide. This way, it can be folded and layered where the baby needs more absorbancy. The soaker is made from 1 layer of zorb 2.
The Ooga and tool diapers are 2 layers of flannel with an inner layer of baby stretch terry. The soaker is the same. All diapers were sewn together using a serger, and the elastic was sewn in blind with a 3-step zig zag.
There is mixed reviews as to whether or not you can use snappis on flannel. Most people say no, as it will leave holes and eventually tear the fabric. Certain knits can be used with snappis, thermal knits for sure. If you made the diaper outer from stretch terry, then yes, it can definitely be snappied.
