I copied this photo from Picklesticks. (Who has a birthday today and graduates from being Mrs 23, to being Mrs 24!!! Happy Birthday!!!) With her permission of course! I had to do that because the nappies we made this week are all at her house. (Which makes sense because that's where the baby is too!) My grandson is modelling a fitted cloth nappy designed by Mrs 24. (She is soooooooo clever!) It is made of bamboo fleece. (It's actually an 80% bamboo, 20% cotton mix) Mrs 24 chose bamboo because it is more absorbant than cotton. When she was pregnant she knew she wanted to use cloth nappies and began to research them on the net. I was blown away by all her plans, but she designed the nappies and we have made them (she did most of the work) and I have to say they are quite easy to make. We did go to a shop on Magill road to have a look at what nappies (bamboo, hemp and microfibre) are available ready made and to check out nappy covers. They were wonderful, but expensive, and as my grandson's family are students we figured DIY was the way to go.
This is my first polar fleece nappy cover. It was a snap to make, so I had better go make some more!
