Anyway, to stop myself from going on and on I will just say that I have decided on fitted nappies that are stuffable, with separate covers. I also decided to make my own so I get to save money, but also get to buy fabric! Bamboo is what I chose as my absorbent fabric (very absorbent, good for the environment and antibacterial etc) and I am making covers from PUL and fleece. I bought fabric online and it arrived a week or so ago but my sewing machine decided to die before any sewing happened. It is now back (picked it up this arvo) and I have now sewn a nappy!
I am pretty thrilled! I made up the pattern after having looked at literally thousands of nappies online and with some size references to real life disposables (freebies from my bounty bag). I don't yet have a baby to try it on but I am being positive and I think it will fit well.
It doesn't have any doing-up bits yet, but I have decided to buy a snap machine and do snaps. As soon as I have decided on the colours I want I am buying one from here. I will use it for clothes and bags and other stuff too, so I am sure it will be well-used.
