Description

What can I say? they are pretty cute, they work better for us than disposables (read no leaks) and I feel much better about using them than filling the bin with disposables.
This is the slimmed down or “bikini” version of the Cuddlebuns one size fits all fitted nappy made up in hemp fleece and the “Cuddlewrap” fleece cover made in polar fleece.

Material Notes

hemp fleece, microfibre (hidden layer), polar fleece

      This is a 2 part system. The nappy is pretty absorbent but they do need a cover over the top (the coloured ones are covers). Polar fleece works as a waterproof layer because it is aquaphobic and it is also cheap and easy to source and pretty breathable so it makes a good option once the baby is a bit active. It’s not so good when they spend a lot of time lying or sitting in one place though because you can get compression leaks.
      There is an option on this pattern to make an all in one which has a waterproof layer and a stay dry layer but I think it makes them take too long to dry- also the cover adds an extra layer of containment so if anything escapes the nappy it gets caught by the cover.

      I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with hemp and bamboo fabrics while I’ve been making these. They are both pretty incredible and much better than cotton from an environmental perspective. I wish they were more readily available.

      It’s actually not as bad as you expect as long as you have a good pattern. I’d say it takes a bit of getting used to and it’s easy to do things in the wrong order at first but once you’ve made a few you know what you’re doing and it’s pretty quick to run them up. Applying the snaps is the time consuming and annoying part.
