My friend, J, just had a baby girl. She had the hat already and asked me to make a matching diaper cover.
Isn't the hat so super cute!! It is definitely a homemade hat. I wonder who made it. I found some knit fabric that matched the flower perfectly. Dana's diaper cover tutorial was so easy to follow and was quick to put together. I attached the ruffles after I sewed the cover together and before I threaded the elastic.
Here is a look at the front. I think that the knit is nice because it doesn't fray so you can leave the edges of the ruffles the raw cut edge and you don't have to serge/fold under the other edges when you sew. But it does stretch weird when you are sewing and can get a little tricky. I had to take out a few seams and redo them.
Also, am I the only one that takes forever pulling through the elastic. I am sure that it took me just as long to get the elastic in there as it did to make the cover. I think next time I make a cover, I am going to use cotton and see how it goes. Dana's tutorial couldn't me cuter or simpler.
