Cloth Diaper

It has been a while since the last time I made a cloth diaper! This cloth diapers are used in Portugal as a burp cloth, they are made of a special cotton fabric almost like a gaze fabric or in a cotton knit when they are meant to be used as a simple cover for the baby stroller. The last ones I made where for Teresa and ended up using the same ones with Sofia!

This one was a special request and a great challenge! I was asked to make the decoration of the diaper that already had legs on it. At first the idea seemed delicious but turns out it was difficult for me to find a motive that seemed reasonable to me and that I could see working out great here. I do not know why but I don’t like painted cloth diapers, and I even like less those country patterns I see in most of the painted cloth diapers. Not my style nor my line of work so it occurred to me to make an application. Much more my style!

But it was not easy to decide especially because boys are not my thing and I had to get out of my comfort zone.

And so a nice and friendly elephant was born!

Task sucessfully completed!
