Babyville Boutique just made sewing cloth diapers easier! They have now added two types of pre-made soakers to their product line. This means that you can sew your own custom diapers using Babyville coordinating PUL fabrics and accessories ans simply add in a soaker to your completed pocket, AIO, or AI2. The soakers come in a rectangle or snake style and have a microfibery terry side (which always faces away from baby’s skin) and a fleece side to keep baby comfortable and dry. As many of us will only be making a few diapers at once, these soakers cut out the extra step of purchasing additional supplies to create inserts.
The Babyville line also has new fabrics and notions this season that are certainly on trend. The fabrics and notions tend to be packaged in colors and patterns that are considered “boy” or “girl.” I received a package of each style, as well as coordinating ribbons, labels, and EZ Adjust Tabs. I would use styles from either package to make diapers for my son, however. I think a boy could really rock black and white chevrons with pink aplix tabs! If you are considering cloth diapers and cloth is a barrier, these items are available at many local JoAnn Fabrics stores. With a little time and patience, you can have a fun and affordable cloth diaper stash.
You don’t need to be an expert seamstress to create diapers using Babyville Boutique. The “Cloth Diapers Made Easy” book is an affordable $9.99 at JoAnn Fabrics and it provides a step by step guide and patterns for virtually any style of diaper. The book will walk you through basic cloth diaper sewing terminology and supplies, then provide patterns with clear, photo instructions. I also appreciate how Babyville Boutique anticipated adjustments and enhancements you might like to make to a diaper. These include side snapping, appliques, lace ruffles, embroidery, gussets, tabs with trim, and custom fitting tips.
The sewing projects with Babyville Boutique products certainly aren’t limited to cloth diapers, either. I also have the 51 PUL Projects Made Easy book. You can create great projects with PUL, such as bibs, reusable bags, raincoats, backpacks, wipes holders, place mats, and pen holders! I love the idea of making some basket liners for hair accessories and toys using the new floral and chevron patterns. I also want to make some AIO diapers and matching t-shirts using my Babyville Boutique PUL, ribbon, and labels.These are on my Christmas sewing list for baby!
