Cloth Diaper Giveaway (closed)


Resuable diapers = Frugal Vogue.

Boy, have cloth diapers ever changed since my eldest was a baby. I dabbled in making my own for Little V last year. These each have a tie-dyed cotton velour outer layer in either coral or purple, and PUL inner layer in either brown or pink. Each doubler is different.

Alas, I made the first one a little too small. Ditto the second one, and the third....so I'm giving them away (with the caveat that the velour/PUL covers have all been laundered. I read that I was supposed to wash and dry them a couple of times to seal the PUL where my sewing machine needle had touched it.) Of course, Dork that I am, I tossed in new unwashed flannel (soon to be liners) with the wash, hence there is a bit of flannel goo in the velcro.

All diapers would best fit the 12 - 24 month range.

This diaper has a flannel and bamboo doubler with an inner layer of Zorb (an awesome moisture absorbing material!) The doubler velcros into place.


This one has a doubler which is sewn in from the top. This doubler is four layers of flannel, one layer of Zorb.


This diaper's doublers are not attached at all. Comes with two doublers, again bamboo, flannel and Zorb.


This last diaper needs a little love. I bought snaps to try, but have the wrong size pliers so it needs either velcro or snaps added to it. Rather than a doubler this time, I made two liners (which are thinner than doublers - they are made to go over the doubler for extra absorbency and to protect the diaper doubler from stains).
I am by no means an expert diaper maker, but these turned out pretty nicely and
when I finally got the sizing right, I was quite happy with the ones I made for Little V.

THE GIVEAWAY:
I'll draw two winners to each receive two diapers.

TO ENTER:
Just leave a comment below and make sure I have a way to reach you.
Open to all of North America (sorry, these would be too bulky/expensive to ship elsewhere).
I will draw the winners on Monday March 15th, so you've got until then to enter.


UPDATE: A couple of people asked... where do I find my PUL? http://www.wazoodle.com/. I got the Zorb there too. Just click their "diaper shop" for great finds and cheap prices. And will I be selling these anytime soon? I won't. I only like to list things in my shop that are *near perfect* (because I'd hate to disappoint someone who paid me cold hard cash), but I am likely to give more away in the future, so check my blog often. Giveaways rock.

I'm dabbling in cloth diaper making too. My son is due in early July. Hopefully mine will fit him... Yours look great!

Brooke said...

Those are adorable... I am having a baby any day now, and my last two have "used up" my cloth diapers... so need some more! Awesome!

Alyssa said...

I am currently using cloth diapers with my daughter - talk about a money saver!! I have thought about making some but I'm afraid it might be a little too addictive & would end up costing me more than I should spend :P
P.S. thanks for the taggie blanket, she loves it!

Dorothy said...

I am due in October with our second child and I am looking for cloth diapers. Maybe I will be lucky and win a few! :)

Awesome awesome, I just found out that I was pregnant the other week and I was thinking to myself, self, I think I would like to try cloth diapering. And since I've got oh, 34 and a half weeks or so left, I think I would like to try making them, or at least aiming for handmade.
Did you buy your supplies locally, or online? If online, could you share? specifically it's PUL that my local fabric store doesn't always carry and I'm gonna need. I've got a pattern already, and a basic plan of what i'd like to aim for (I think I'll probably go with stuffables made of flannel and PUL) but I'm trying to find a good online resource for the PUL...

lorchick @ ON{thelaundry}LINE said...

oh and also, I've never heard of "Zorb" before, did you buy that online? lol. QUIZTIME!

Casey said...

Ally's a bit too big for those, and we're working on training...but those are ADORABLE!!!!!

Ellen said...

This is exactly what I need as my growing 10 month old (who wears a size 12 month) continues to need diapers. Thank you for this giveaway.

Wow--I really love your blog! Those diaper covers are great. A friend of mine just had a baby, and she would love them. She is using similar ones that were ordered on Amazon, but not nearly as cute! Thank you for all you are doing here. I will be stopping in to your blog alot!

The diapers you have made are very cute :-) Expecting my 1st baby on April 15th :-) Going the CD way. have bought some prefolds and covers and washed them once. Planning on washing at least a couple more times to make them more absorbent. Once I start my mat leave will visit your blog more often to get ideas on sewing stuff

The Boy and The Dogs mama said...

How Adorable. good job mama!

hosiewosie said...

love the dipes. our prefolds are getting worn out and i've been thinking about sewing some, but I'm a sewing newbie so I'm putting it off for awhile. love to win yours!

Melissa said...

Would love those diapers for my petite little 19 month old!

Melissa said...

Wow, I don't know how I missed this post. Your diapers are beautiful. I think cloth diapering was the reason I bought my sewing machine int he first place. I was going broke buying Fuzzibuns and pre-folds lol. I never did make any but I have tried my hand at mama cloth.

yay for cloth diapers!
p.s. Don't enter me in the draw I just wanted to tell you how pretty your diapers are!

ppss You find wazoodle has fair shipping prices? I find buying fabric online is sometimes expensive because of that.

Emily B said...

Your diapers are lovely! Great fabric choices. I wouldn't have a clue where to begin, I'm impressed! I'm trying to build a stash for our future little one, but I've never tried making them... hmmm!

Tara said...

Fingers crossed!!!

I had a baby the end of January and while I was pregnant I thought it would be cool to make some diapers. I made almost 50 diapers using a pattern I got off the net. They were supposed to be newborn and small... well my chubby baby got to use the diapers a few days...they are too small!! What a dissapointment... all that work down the tubes so I am now making more hopefully they will fit!! I would LOVE to have a few of yours to add to my stash... pick me pick me PWEESSSEEEE!!!

Elisabeth said...

I like to use cloth on my daughter, and would love to try something a little different. I haven't had much experience w/ different kinds of material for the diapers.
Also - I made the ruffle bum bloomers that you showed, and they turned out to be SO adorable!
