Posts Tagged ‘upcycled diapers’

So I’m revisiting the upcycled diapers post because I’m having such a good time with it.  It’s a HUGE money-saver, plus it’s fun rummaging through old things and making them new and usable again.

I came across an old super-soft sweater that I no longer wear, and thought it could make a very cute prefold diaper.  Below is the result:

So I’ve been a busy bee trying to sew some diapers for my little one, and I asked myself:  “Self, I wonder if we can fashion some dipes out of some old clothes that I’ll never get my big girl self into again?”  I pondered this for a moment and as I looked through my closet, I realized there was a wealth of material in there that I could use.

The first thing I grabbed was an old shirt.  I decided to try and make a prefold.  I looove prefolds.   Prefolds are what most people think of  when they think of cloth diapers.  Prefolds were what my mom used back in the day, but earlier than that folks used whatever they had handy.   It is very possible to make yourself a diaper stash out of what you already have in your closet.

The shirt I used was made out of regular t-shirt material.  It was a very soft so it had a tendency to want to curl along the edges, but I made it work.  I cut strips out of some scrap flannel to fashion the center of the prefold.

Tah dah!  Upcycled diapers for baby!  Pretty cool, huh?
