In my last post, I mentioned that I made some diapers for my daughter’s handmade doll. She loves pretending to give her stuffed animals and other toys “diaper changes,” but we actually don’t have any play diapers. With the new baby, I figure she’s going to see a lot of diaper changes in the future, so I’d encourage the idea by making some little cloth diapers for her doll.
The concept of these diapers is based on a tutorial I found through Pinterest: http://onelittleproject.com/how-to-make-cloth-diapers-for-a-baby-doll/, though I didn’t use her pattern, since this doll is a dramatically different shape and size!
Based on the basic shape of the diaper pattern from the tutorial, I drafted my own pattern. When I was happy with the design, I sewed up a couple in white, and I’ll make more in the future if they are needed!
The design is very similar to the shape of a disposable diaper (or a fancy cloth diaper). They close with velcro just like in the tutorial, though I didn’t line them with fleece (seemed excessive for such a small doll).
I have to admit, it’s a little funny to be posting pictures of this poor doll in just a diaper, but I think they’re super cute, and I’m certain that my daughter is going to get a kick out of diapering her!
