    This would make an excellent reusable swim diaper with the right fabric! I love this simple pattern — so CUTE! High reward for minimal frustration — that’s my kind of project. 😉

  2. Oh Thank you dana for the free template! it would be so helpful for me as i am about to prepare Eid clothes ( a celebration for us Muslims) for my baby boy aged 1 year 2months old. this diaper cover seems easy to make, and i plan to make lots of it for my boy! and i can sew some for my 3months old nephew too- as gifts!

    thank you for everything dana- you da bomb!

    Very nice pattern. Well written explanation. I used to make something very similar to this. Every time I made my daughter a dress ( up to about age 8 or 9) I made a pair of “match-panties” to wear over her panties and under her dress. Decency on the monkey bars and no “I see Paris, I see France”. I thought it just looked cuter than a pair of shorts under her dresses and took so little time and fabric”

    I noticed that you did not finish the seams in the crotch – is this because it was to hard to do with serger?

      It’s such a small area, and secured at both ends with casings that it would be really hard for that area of the seam to fray.

  5. Dana this is such a cute tutorial! Videos make it so much easier to understand. I think I will try making some and add some ruffles for my little princess! Thanks again for this great tutorial! Sharing on Facebook and pinning! Taya
