How to make a diaper for a child’s doll

Surprise Me!

Okay this might seem like the craziest gift, but I tell you my little girl is going to adore a stack of these baby doll diapers. Really a diaper is the only ‘clothes’ our babies wear, if any.

These are very easy to make, but if you want a simple pattern so you don’t have to spend time figuring it out you may download the

Instructions for making a diaper for a child’s doll:

Cut two pieces of fabric.  I used a soft flannel, in pink of course (in my daughter’s eyes there are no other colors).

Stitch the two pieces right sides together.  Leave about a 2 inch opening on the straight edge along the back for turning.

Clip corners and curves.  Turn the fabric right side out.  Whip stitch opening closed.  Sew velcro on the inside of the back flaps and on the outside of the front. I am confusing the you with the picture. Pretend it is flipped over.  Actually this is easy, just lay your diaper out and fold it up and you will see where the velcro goes.  It is probably a good idea to try it on your doll to get the correct velcro placement.

These only take minutes, including the time it takes to re-thread the sewing machine needle when the thread breaks sewing the velcro on (does anyone have any tips for this). My daughter aka “little mommy” will be in heaven with this gift


I’m off to think of some ideas for the boys!
