Since I know a lot of you end up here because you share my love for cloth diapers, it’s fair to assume you’ve at least heard of Babyville Boutique and their cute collection of supplies for making baby stuff, right? It is hard to believe that it was over 2 years ago now that I first jumped into the world of cloth diapering and when I did, I jumped big time and dove into making my own from the start.
The first thing I did was get to my local JoAnn store and buy the Babyville Boutique Cloth Diapers Made Easy Book
a pair of snap pliers with snaps, and some basic white PUL. The resulting diapers were cute and even pretty functional. After using them a while I realized pretty quickly that the inserts weren’t absorbent enough for my heavy wetter and too bulky to double up. I also had some issues with the flannel lining fabric because it just wasn’t as soft or gentle on my baby’s skin as I would’ve liked. (Not a testament or fault of the pattern book, I just hadn’t looked more into fabric options and hadn’t tested various ones first to make sure they didn’t irritate baby girl’s skin. )
Since then, more cute prints have been added to the PUL line and I have to say I was truly excited when I got my package of items because look at these adorable prints! ———————->>>
I’d be a rotten liar if I tried to hide that I’m a true lover (victim) of the chevron trend. As long as I’ve loved a pretty zig zag print, it’s only been recently that I’ve started acquiring more chevron fabrics to subtly insert into my home’s decor and my girls’ wardrobe. All of them are sitting unused right now though because I get anxiety about cutting into fabric I love and not loving the end result. I digress……
