Why is it so impossible to just buy a diaper cover? Why?? If they sold them, say in packs of three in various seasonal colors, would we not purchase them? I don’t understand it, and neither do our readers, judging by the number of emails we get asking for a pattern. Your wish is our command…Get the DIY for the matching Sweet Shirred Summer Dress here, and the full tutorial and free Diaper Cover Pattern after the jump…DIY Diaper CoverTo sew this diaper cover, you’ll need our Diaper Cover Pattern and 1 length of 3/8″ thick elastic for the waist, and 2 lengths of 1/4″ thick elastic for the leg holes. This pattern fits about 18-24 months depending on the size of the booty you are working with. I used a piece of 3/4″ elastic 18″ long for the waist and 2 pieces of 1/4″ elastic 11″ long for the legs (you can measure the waist and leg circumference and add about 2.5″ to get your specific measurements). For a smaller baby you can use the same pattern and smaller lengths of elastic and just have a poofier diaper cover, or you can shrink the pattern. As with any pattern, double check your print settings to make sure they are not set to “shrink to fit”. The fabric here is the almost-sold-out Anna Maria Horner Dobby Voile Pastry Line in Coral (which is 15% off along with ALL Anna Maria Horner fabrics at Fabricworm right now, eek!)

Happy Spring, machine quilting fans! I am Lori Kennedy from LoriKennedyQuilts.com.?They say you can’t count your chickens before they’re hatched, but you can count on the baby chicks motif to add charm to your next quilt! Stitch one baby chick in the center of a square block or stitch a row of chicks to create a fun border. For a more whimsical design, add a few flowers and an eggshell or two. Doodle the motif several times to develop the muscle memory for smoother stitching and to determine the best scale for the chicks in your project!
