Before baby came, my daughter started to show more interest in her baby dolls. We had started buying things for the baby and she wanted some diapers for her dolls to wear. Well, instead of using real diapers which would have probably been shredded to pieces after a while, I whipped up some felt diapers for her to have. She liked these better because “they are prettier” than real baby diapers 🙂
I made them a size to fit a variety of dolls/animals. You can see them on Curious George, an American Girl doll,
and an Itty Bitty baby doll. They are really quick, simple, and cheap to make and you don’t even have to sew to make them.
Start by gathering your supplies:
–Print out the pattern here (I suggest printing on cardstock paper)
-Felt (I used the $.25 pieces from the craft store)
-Velcro (I used 3/4 inch, but you can use whatever size you like. If you have some that is too big, you can always cut it to fit as well).
-If not sewing it on, get some glue. I suggest fabric glue, but you could even hot glue it probably.
Fold your piece of felt in half and place the pattern on the fold.
Cut out pattern. Place wrong side up like this.
Grab your velcro and place them in the spots marked below. You can sew them or glue them in place. I put 4″of the soft part of the velcro in the middle and 1″ of the scratchy part on the edges.
Now let your little one start diapering dolls and stuffed animals.
