Hello cute peoples!
Are you interested in another fun
little project for the
little girl/girls in your life?
One of the projects that I made as
part of my Christmas sewing...
were diapers for the doll that I bought
for my cutie patootie grandaughter
Sophie is 2 1/2 years old now and she is at that age where she loves to take bubble baths and she loves to drag everything
in the tub with her!
So when I saw this doll I thought it
would be perfect for her.
There's just something so fun about
giving a doll to a little girl
on Christmas isn't there?
Look at her sweet little face and her molded hair!...so vintagey looking...
she reminds me of the baby dolls I used to play with as a little girl.
on to the dolly diapers.
I used a small little print lined with
white flannel for each diaper.
I pre-shrunk the flannel because I know that flannel shrinks alot and I assumed Sophie would be washing these cute little diapers often and hanging them on her little clothesline to dry!
Velcro worked perfectly for the closures and Sophies little hands were able to fasten and unfasten them easily.
I used a cute pattern found on
Skip to my Lou for the diaper.
to check it out.
I copied the pattern at 66.7% and I found
that size fit Sophie's doll perfectly using my method of cutting and sewing.
Her doll measures about 12" tall....you can adjust the pattern to fit any size doll!
I sewed mine a bit differently than the one on
Skip to my Lou ...
I traced my pattern onto poster board (to make it sturdy for tracing) and then cut it out.
Then I used a mechanical pencil and traced the pattern onto the wrong side of the printed fabric for my sewing line...I didn't trace a line where I left an opening.
I placed the flannel onto the right side
of the print...
I didn't need to pin because the
flannel doesn't slip...
and stitched directly on my traced line.
I of course left an opening:)
I cut out the diaper leaving an approximate 1/4" seam allowance.
I clipped the inside curves before turning so that they would lay flat.
Then I turned the diaper using my favorite turning tool to get nice corners...
a crochet hook.
I pressed the seam allowances to the
opening under 1/4"...
And topstitched the diaper all the way around the edges...which sewed the opening closed.
I made 7 diapers...
one for every day of the week:)
I sewed on the velcro and made a
cute little dolly diaper stack.
And then played with them some more...sorry...I'm still trying to grow up!
I also cut 6 pieces of flannel and
zig-zagged the edges for
little diaper wipeys.
I remembered seeing a picture of
some like that on
and I thought they were so cute and I knew that Sophie would love them!
I was right...
Sophie did love them and as soon as she unwrapped them...
she didn't waste any time changing
her new baby's diaper!
I'll show them to you next!
