Do you have/know a sweet little lady who loves to mommy all of her dollies? I do. My little girl likes to wrap her dollies and animals in blankies, feed them, change their clothes………..and yes, their little diapers too. It really is priceless to watch.
So I have seen these mini diapers around a number of places and just had to make some.
And yes, for Ahh-Ahh.
Well, he’s known as Curious George to most. But when my little girl couldn’t say “monkey” or “George”, she would say Ahh-Ahh. You know, the sound a monkey makes…….”Eee Eee, Ahh Ahh, Oooh Oooh” Well, it was shortened to Ahh Ahh and now that’s her little buddy’s name. Forever.
All I did was design a shape that would work as a diaper. (You can trace a real diaper and then just shrink it……..or just play around with a shape until it works.)
(After I took this picture, I even extended the back tabs that come around the bodice. So adjust to your own dolls/stuffed animals.)
Then, try it out on your doll/stuffed animal to make sure it fits and doesn’t need any adjusting.
If it fits just right, then lay it down on some fabric and cut around your pattern but add about a 1/4 inch to all sides. (for your seam allowance)
Then lay this piece on top of your lining/inner fabric and cut out another piece the same size.
Then sew these two pieces together, with right sides together. Make sure to leave an opening so that you can turn it right side out.
Then clip your corners off and also clip the curves. (Do you know why you clip the curves? So that when you turn it right side out, it lays flat and doesn’t pull along that curve. Try not clipping it and turn it right side out, to see what I mean.)
Then turn it right side out, fold in the open section, iron it flat, and then sew all the way around…..really close to the edge.
Then sew velcro onto the front and the two side flaps.
