Is there anyone who does 100% custom dipes?

I made a little extra money today (a VERY successful FSOT party with some friends...thank goodness so many girls were born to my circle of friends in the last year! ), and I want to splurge on my very first fully custom diaper. I have an idea of the print I'd like to have for the outer, but the only place I've seen it is out of stock and won't be restocking. However, I'm sure if I surfed some fabric sites long enough, I could find something similar. Is there anyone out there who will make a totally custom dipe, including purchasing new fabric for the outer?

Spam me if you want! I'm wanting a cute fitted that will be fairly absorbent, but also trim for daytime use. I'm also very into bamboo fabrics.

Thanks!

Stacey - This is the one I'm interested in (it's a Mutt on buttercupbaby.com):



It's such a simple stripe that I can't imagine it would be difficult to find something similar, but for some reason, it totally makes me drool. And boy patterns don't usually do that for me.

Kaela - OK, are you being serious or sarcastic? LOL. I'm new to CDing and really don't know. I hear so much around here about custom longies using custom colorways, that I just assumed the same would hold true of dipes.

It is funny that I'm so in love with a stripe, isn't it? I don't know why I love that one so much, but ya know how sometimes you see a dipe and just think, "I must have!"? Yeah, that's how it was with this.

Lots of WAHM's will do all custom diapers. I've sent in outer fabrics, inner fabrics, soakers, etc. Just contact some of your favorites, and see if they will do it. You could also try Nana's Bottoms here on DS. I think her screen name is momof7. Her diapers are very nicely made, and the couple of times I've worked with her has been great!

Re: Is there anyone who does 100% custom dipes?

No I was not being sarcatic at all! I think totally custom diapers would be awesome! Yes some do customs but they use whatever pattern they have, I've never seen anyone do TOTALLY custom where you can send your childs measurments and tell them if you want a wide crotch or narrow or serged or T&T, fs, SS or aplix, there are so many choices to make for one diaper lol. I'm betting the only ones willing to take on a challenge like that are people who are new to the WAHM sceen because nobody with an established business would take the time required to do that. It would be awesome though!

Re: Is there anyone who does 100% custom dipes?

I do bamboo velours, and often do customs. Actually, the majority of the time, unless someone orders a small or newborn, I contact them to find out waist and rise, so this wouldn't be a stretch. My dipes are priced at 18.95, but it is a great value, considering it'll be custom and a handpicked print. I understand how you feel when you just fall in love with a print. I have felt that way lots of times! I've found that having getting a diaper made specially for my baby makes me love it that much more!!! PM me if interested.

ME TOO!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that diaper. I don't know what it is about it, but I was drooling over it too. Not to mention that's a mutt and I would have loved to get my hands on it. It's gorgeous and that's not something I often say about "boy" diapers.
