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!!
