Ditto's one-size pattern

Post by Dunners » Sat Aug 25, 2007 7:09 pm

This pattern rocks!

I made my first one ages ago - when Macca's boy was a wee newborn and had skinny wee legs & it was a struggle to find a nappy that would fit snug around his thighs. Melissa said that nappy was fantastic, and now 9 months on it's still a great fit on Jack.

Last night I made a pocket for James using this pattern. I'm so pleased with the fit, it's great! I might have to get rid of a few nappies to justify making some more for James using this pattern ;)

The leg elastic is snap-adjustable so this pattern is best for those with easy access to a snap press.

Cheers Esther (and sorry for all the requests for your pattern that will follow...)

Thanks, Leanne :)

The pattern is available by PMing me. It goes up to about equivalent to petite Fuzzibunz size, so it doesn't go up to large size unless you make the wings longer. It's a bit fiddlier to make than some nappies so shouldn't be the first nappy you try. It fits babies from around eight pounds up to about 13kg.

I love this pattern. It's a great fit on my boy, it looks really trim. I've made a couple for other people and one for DS and this morning it had its first big test and passed with flying colours :lol: . Yay! Definitely a bit trickier to make than other nappies but I enjoyed making something a bit more challenging.

Looks like a great pattern.

What makes it so adjustable? Is the rise adjustable?
Just trying to picture how it works and if it would be suitable for my wee fairy girl.
Have never seen one IRL.

Thanks

Thanks heaps

I've got your pattern Esther (as you know coz you sent it to me :) ) and I've made about 14 from it so far. I've made some pretty cool prints up, so I must take some pics and figure out how to post them.... They are looking really great and compared with the few "professional" ones I've bought, I'm really pleased with them. Of course I won't know how well they work until January!

I began to wonder recently though if they would be small enough to fit a newborn, so I started to make some small Wee Weka to use in the early stages. Have only made 1.9 nappies so far and I'm finding them really fiddly! We are expecting a big bub though (>9 lb-ers both me and DH and all big bubs both sides of the family), so would other TNNers just recommend to stick with Ditto's pattern and not bother with making any smalls?

Cheers,
A.

Did you use the wee weka sm/med pocket pattern? If so my boy didn't go into that until about 5 months, but he's quite small, he was about 6.5kg or 14lbs. You'll need something smaller than that for a nb. I'm not sure about Ditto's pattern as I haven't got around to making it up yet :roll:
