Shar's Newborn Fitted

Post by Dunners » Sun Jun 04, 2006 6:39 pm

This pattern makes a cute wee NB nap. I added a stud snap above the middle socket snap (on the tummy) so that I could snap down to make an umbilical scoop. It was fiddly to sew around the stud snap (as the tummy piece is where I turn right-side out), but it was worthwhile to make the scoop.

There isn't much stretch in the wings because I used suedecloth as a stay-dry layer to go against the skin. My son outgrew this at some point between 4.5 and 5 kg (around 10 lb).

Very cute nappies coming from this pattern! I have a nice wee collection.
They wont be trialed for a few more months but I bet they will get lots of use.

Umbilical scoop?

Post by Mumstheword » Tue Nov 07, 2006 10:33 pm

What is an unbilical scoop? I am new to making nappies (am trying to find the right sizes to fit my Nb to be and 18 month old) and do not know alot of the wording. :oops:

it's a little bit either cut out of the nappy or folded down in the nappy where it would otherwise rub on the unbilical cord stump

Can you make these naps with PUL on the outside, so it sort of becomes waterproof?

SIO/Snap in one or AI2/all in two is where the nappy is a separate piece and has a hidden waterproof layer, then the insert snaps in, like an Itti Bitti. I used this pattern but added quite a bit to the rise and the tabs and turned it into a SIO, it was a great newborn nappy 8-) You could make it just with PUL, it's just minky is so scrummy and soft for a newborn :vibes:

OK - just taking a while to get my head around that. I have never seen an itti bitti...
Can you tell I am a pockets and fitted girl? :oops:

Hehe I was a pocket girl too but they leak on DD no matter what I try :( And I hate the dry-time and smell issues of fitteds, so SIO were the perfect answer, and no stuffing! Here is a pic of the inside of an Itti, in has a trifold snapped in first and then a booster:
