Recycle T-Shirts To Make Cloth Diapers
As mentioned in an earlier post, my mom and little sister are layette-making machines. They transformed flannel sheets into 149 cloth diapers in one weekend. Now I’m not quite that amazing, but once upon a time I rescued 12 shirts from Spencer’s Goodwill bin and made 12 cloth diapers. Mom suggested I post my tutorial and link it back to her blog.
So to start, I went to Lutheran World Relief to see what their measurements were for cloth diapers. And guess what I found? A tutorial to make diapers from t-shirts, of course. (I thought I was so original!) So I’m going to go sulk and quilt and you can all just get your tutorial there.
Although Lutheran World Relief is my favorite organization and they always need diapers, I have to say, why not make some for yourself? Cloth diapering is making a serious comeback with concern for the environment. It is also a much cheaper option over disposables.
Cheap? Sorry, I meant FREE. You’re making your diapers from t-shirts and flannel sheets, remember?
If you’re interested in learning more about cloth diapering, I’ve learned a lot from these sources:
Oh, and why do I even think about cloth diapers? Because Mom makes layettes, layettes need cloth diapers, diapers can be made from t-shirts, I like recycling t-shirts, recycling t-shirts is eco-friendly, diapers are eco-friendly…
I just think too much, that’s all.
