My sons have recently started a program called Therapeutic Listening. It involves listening to customized CDs with a portable CD player and special headset. I wanted a way for them to be able to move around freely while listening to their CD, so I set out to make them CD player belts. I didn’t find any online tutorials – most likely because most people use iPods these days (I found plenty of iPod case/carrier tutorials) – so I decided to make one myself. Hopefully it will help someone else along the way. :)
Yes, I know… the name is terrible. I’m not sure one should actually use the word “poo” when naming their diaper design, but I’m also equally convinced that super-cutesy names aren’t necessarily the way to go. But I digress, as this is supposed to be a pattern review.
I cloth diapered all three of my children, but it wasn’t until very late in the game while diapering #2 and #3 (twins) that I ventured into making any diapers of my own. It’s surprisingly easy.
I am a pattern sewer by nature, so I went looking for patterns. There are many free ones out there, and some inexpensive ones with PDF downloads. But I wanted a real, printed, pattern, so I tried the Side-Snapping Poo Pockets pattern. Of all of the diaper patterns I’ve tried, it’s by far my favorite.
I received some patterns recently from my mother. It looks to be from about 2004, and is for shorts, pants, capris and three skirt lengths. I was looking for a fast project for myself, just to fulfill a need to create something, so I opted to make the shorts.
