Pretty in pink...

I have gotten a start on the dolly diapers. They are so cute. I have used the pattern Cindy posted on her Skip to my Lou blog. If you have never visited Skip to my Lou, you should. She is creative and generous with many free tutorials.

I traced out six diapers on a double layer of pink polka dot flannel. I then stitched on the lines leaving an opening on the straight edge, for turning.

I then trimmed all the curved sides with my pinking shears. I trimmed the straight edge a slightly wider with a regular scissor. It will help to keep a tidier finish when turning. I also clipped all the corners.

Turned right side out and used a knitting needle to push out the corners. Folded in the opening neatly.
Top stitched all around, which seals the opening and gives a nice finish. I used the softest Velcro I could find
Adorable, now to finish up the other five.

I decided I needed a model. You know some of these models are so thin.

Isn't he hilarious. I am not much of a Halloween person but I just knew my Hubby and the Boy would love this guy. Not to mention he was forty percent off at JoAnn Fabrics.

Oh my word that model is hysterical - I was reading your post with the cat beside me on the couch, and when I saw diaper-clad skeletor I LOL'd ... the cat flew off the couch in fear, HAHAHA!!! I'd say that particular model is a size 0 or less - YIKES - she could use a Pop Tart or five!! ;)
