USA Diaper!

On Twitter this weekend we posted the following tweet:Happy 4th!

Do you have a cute pic of your baby in a patriotic dipe? Post pic link & tweet @diapershops . Win a FB os diaper. Randomly drawn.


What I especially like is that ALL Thirsties products are "Made in the USA". How fitting! -Kelly

I knew I wanted Carson to wear red, white and blue for his first 4th of July, but by the time it dawned on me that a patriotic DIAPER would be adorable, it was too late to order one and get it in time for the 4th. So, I decided to get creative! We love Thirsties fab fitteds and Thirsties covers, so we had a red Thirsties cover. I decided to hit up the local Hobby Lobby and see if I could find a decorative patch to sew on. Well, ok. A decorative patch that my MOM could sew on, for me!! I found an aisle full of potential diaper decorations, but they were all iron on!! I wasn't sure how that would pan out, with the cover being PUL. I decided to try it out anyway, since I have quite a few covers.

When I got the cover home, and looked at the patches, I realized that they also had adhesive on the back, for a one time use! So, I decided to just stick them on the cover for the 4th of July, and voila! Instant patriotism displayed on the bum! For what it's worth, I got a few other iron on transfers, and DID try them on other Thirsties covers, and it worked great! The PUL did NOT melt. The covers won't be able to go in the dryer any longer though!

So here is Carson, proudly displaying his pride for the Red, White and Blue! Happy 4th of July!!

So cute! I'm curious about not ever being able to dry covers in the drier again because of the added embellishment. I've read that it's good to occassionally machine dry covers because it "reseals" the PUL? Is that true? I know you aren't supposed to machine dry diapers and covers ALL the time because it's hard on the elastic...

Amanda said...

Actually, it's good that you did not have a patch sewn on because piercing holes into the PUL w/out another layer of PUL to go over it would have caused it to leak big time.

Good to know that you can iron embellishments on.

It turned out ADORABLE!

awwwww, this is entirely too cute. i'd have been too terrified to try though because we don't have enough dipes to risk screwing one up, lol!

This has got to be one of the cutest 4th of July diapers I have seen. And I saw a lot on Saturday. What an awesome idea!

yammmie said...

WOW! That is REALLY cute

ChrissyLou said...

Adorable!

I was going to say that you can probably just see on an iron on patch. The poster who said sewing it would cause leaks was my second thought! The solution, I think, would be to carefully use a cheap iron on piece of material on the inside where the embelishment is. (maybe?)

Great job, again!!

Ashley said...

Congrats! That is SUCH a cute diaper!

I love that we can have our babies coordinate their dipes with the holidays. Sposies can't. :)
