Ivy and I participated in The Great Cloth Diaper Change a week ago. It was fun to see so many local cloth diaperers all in one place. And hopefully we helped to break the world record for most cloth diapers changed at one time worldwide.
I didn’t bring a “real” camera, so all I have are a few cell phone pics. Ivy before, during and after the change:
Her adorable knit wool longies (pants) were made by my amazing sister-in-law. We got so many compliments on them! Thank you, Robin!
The rules, as per Guinness, were that the diapers had to be commercially available. So we went with GroVia diapers. They are my current favorite diapers. We use the All In Ones and the fit is amazing. Really. If you are looking for a trim, easy to use cloth diaper, I totally recommend GroVia! AIOs (all in ones) have always given us leak and wicking issues, but these have been awesome. I also like their covers over our fitteds. No sponsorship or anything, I just am really impressed with these diapers. But hey, GroVia, if you’re reading, I’m open to negotiations on the subject! Anyway, yeah, I like them a lot so that’s what we went with for The Change.
The shirt, I designed.
At the last minute, I decided Ivy needed a shirt for the occasion . So I put together this little ditty
And thought I’d share it with you all. If you click HERE or on the picture above, it will take you to the image for you to download (free). Use as you want, just please don’t sell it or pass it off as your own design. Pattern is hosted on Craftsy, and the link is an affiliate link. Craftsy is free, the graphic is free.
I slapped it on a little white tee we had hanging around. I think it would be adorable on a romper made using THIS free pattern I found on All Free Sewing (love that sight!).
I normally like to use homemade silk screening for this sort of thing. But with my limited time, freezer paper and a stippling brush worked just fine.
Anyway, just thought I’d share the diaper love today.
So, have you tried cloth yet?
Well, you totally should. Cloth is Boss!
