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.
- 9×12 Felt pieces
- 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.
