Hey a diaper is a diaper if your baby's bum needs one
I used the Poopockets pattern (my first diaper pattern purchase) and modified it to make a 'pocket, side snapping diaper' that sure did look an aweful lot like a trim cross between a 'Swaddlebees' and a 'Fuzzi Bunz' and the mom I made them for LOVED them. So you never know!
I made a few trial 'pocket' styles with the gussets and it was a PITA, so I just left off the gussets and they work fine.
(Just another idea if you have the pattern already)
I'm going to make some regular diapers (hemp/cotton jersey) with the gussets, as that would probably be easier to do. Then just make the covers from a PUL / Fleece combo using the other pattern they sell for making diaper covers.
I recently got the Cloe Toes pattern and it looks great! I would love to make extras for moms with that, as it seems popular, though the pattern is in black and white and all the sizes are stacked and it's a bit eye straining to read.
I think wipes would be a nice thing to make for moms too, as many don't have sergers/fabric and they are so nice on baby's bum!
What about diaper pail liners? I love my PUL liner. It goes in with the wash and makes it so nice to 'dump' dipers and not have to touch them again.
Mamma cloth? What else can be made in advance to help moms....
I used to crocet when I was a young girl, but have forgotten so many of the stitches, that it'd be a SLOW learning curve to try to read a pattern to make one...though I'm interested in it. I would probably have more luck doing like the other moms and making recycled 'wool sweater' covers. That looks so fun! Not tried it yet though!
Now that I think about it...is starting now soon enough
