There’s something I forgot about newborns.
That sometimes you can change those rascally little bums 6 times in one hour.  You think they have for sure emptied out their little newborn systems, so you freshen them up, put on a new and fresh scented diaper and then……….uggghh, you hear them grunt out some more.  Repeat 5 more times in the next 59 minutes.  So unpredictable.
There’s another thing I forgot about newborns.  (Well, girl newborns.) How much I love covering those unpredictable little bums in a diaper cover.  Love it.  Times 10. 
And then I don’t mind changing it 6 times in one hour.
Remember how I showed you how I created a simple little diaper cover pattern from a diaper cover we already had?

Well, since making diaper covers is a very forgiving project, I enjoy making them often.  (Just remember, if those lines aren’t perfect and if there’s a pucker or two…..once the elastic is in, you won’t ever notice.)
I had some ruffle fabric on hand (from the Ruffle Fabric shop)  and decided to use it on the diaper covers.  I knew it would save me from making my own ruffles.  Perfect.

Again, I made them just like the diaper cover tutorial that I linked to above…….waistband casing and all.  (If you end up making a diaper cover out of the ruffle fabric, I just folded over one of the ruffle rows over and sewed the casing just like normal.  Don’t worry how the row of ruffles ends up looking from the inside, just try to keep the ruffles straight on the outside.  Sew slowly.  Same with the leg openings.)

Little bums don’t stay little forever……so I enjoy covering them with ruffles while I can.

Felt flower was made using this tutorial.

**Good luck making one, two, or ten of your own diaper covers.
(The fabric I used is the Grey Mini Ruffle, found here and the Ivory Mini Ruffle, found here.)
Remember, I also used Ruffle Fabric
back when I turned a t-shirt into this Ruffle Dress, found here.
