How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaper

Felt Doll Diaper Tutorial

 Did you know you can make baby doll diapers to fit just about any doll. They are quick and easy and your kids will love being able to quickly change their babies diaper.

Have you seen the ridiculous prices on doll diapers at the store? If you have a little girl surely you have, and the ones that are sticky and supposedly reusable? Not so much, the adhesive doesn’t even last as long as real diapers. Besides that there is pretty much one color, white with a tiny bit of print. If you make your own you are saving a ton of money,  you can make them to fit any doll, and in wide variety of colors and even patterns using inexpensive felt squares from the craft store.  Your little girl will love having her own stack of cute and colorful diapers to reuse over and over, they are also washable so they will last a long time as well.

How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaperSupplies Needed:

  • 9×12 Felt pieces
  • velcro
  • scissors
  • needle and thread or sewing machine

Fold your felt square in half longways.
Measure and mark 1 “ down on the ends, and 5 ¼” in on the bottom from each edge- make sure you do this on the folded side.
Using a ruler mark a line from the side marks and bottom center marks creating a triangle on each corner, cut away these small triangles.
Cut 2”off the front upper corners, and 1 “ off the back.
Use this first diaper as a template to trace and cut all your other diapers.
Hot glue or sew a small piece of velcro centered  ½” from the edge on front flap. Attach the other piece of velcro onto back flap 1” in as well.
This diaper fits a standard Cabbage Patch, if you are using it for a different brand of doll you can very easily adjust it to fit, after  cutting off the  triangles wrap it around your doll, mark where the velcro would fit best and cut your lengths there instead.
Felt is usually only 4/$1 so you can easily make a dozen of these in various colors in about half an hour, they make a great Christmas gift for any little girl  (or boy) in your life.How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaper

It is that time of year again! Kids are headed back to school. Some are excited about it, others, not so much.  I have some of each in my house.

Here is a fun printable for you to enjoy! Click here back to school to download the pdf. Just select it, save to your computer and then send to your favorite printer. You can also click the photo below and save it to your computer. I have found that sometimes the pdf prints better, but not all printers will print a pdf version. Either should be fine.

I think it would be cute with some fun school supplies for a beginning of the year teacher gift also.

Easy chore chart, Teach kids responsibility

This summer has been crazy busy! In the middle of all the hustle and bustle I have been trying to get the kids to help more around the house.  They are home all day, and make the mess, so why should the adults be responsible for cleaning it all up? *Disclaimer, my kids are 7, 9 and 12 so I realize that with younger kids this may not work. I also realize that all families are different, but this is what works for us! They have always had chores, but those were just usually kept in my head, which lets face it, sometimes I forget.  I decided since they were out of school it was time to add some chores and increase the difficulty or frequency of some others. My mom used to have a chore chart similar to this, but there were 8 of us on it,yikes! After searching for a chore chart I loved, I decided to go old school and use the method I grew up with. It has been working like a charm.

You will need:

card stock or construction paper (I used 4 sheets)

brads

scissors

fine tip sharpie markers or pens

*Not required but sure helpful, a circle template cutter. This is the one I use and I love it!

There wasn’t a circle size large enough for how big I wanted the biggest circle so I traced a bowl and cut that one by hand with scissors. The others were various sized circles that I cut with the circle cutter.  After the circles are cut, use a brad to hold them together in the middle. Now you can turn the circles to change what they are doing each week.

I wanted a circle for their name, and different tiers for different chores. The first one is the kitchen chores, that need to be done daily, sometimes (but not often) more. The second one are things that may need done more than once a week, but not daily. And the outer circle are chores that need done weekly (although, the take out the trash also requires the person to take out the inside trash bag when it gets full in addition to taking out all the garbage the night before garbage day). In addition to the chart, they are responsible for folding their laundry when it comes out of the dryer and cleaning their rooms.

So far it has worked well! They know they don’t get to do certain things until the chores are done. It is hard for me to let the dishes sit sometimes longer than I would like, but I think it is important to teach them not only to do the chores, but to be responsible to take the initiative to do them without being nagged.  I do remind them a few times, but beyond that they just don’t get video games, devices, etc until it is done. So if they want to waste time, that is up to them. The whole agency thing is a hard lesson to learn and to teach some days!

So, tell me, do you use a chore chart? Does it work in your house? How do you add responsibility when the kids are home for the summer? Does anything change, or are they pretty much the same all year round? Let us know in the comments! I love hearing how other families do things and implementing them in my life as well.
