I made a newborn fitted! Its SO cute!

I found a few strips of some leftover brown jersey knit fabric I used to make a pillowcase and decided to piece together the free newborn fitted pattern from DDD. I made 2 layers T&T with elastic, and plan to snap in the cotton soaker I made to match. Stitching is weird on the soaker, I didn't know how to wrap the fabric around the cotton nicely. Baby boy due in May will wear this.

If I can score a few brown snaps somewhere, this little guy will be done.

thank for looking!

Good job mama! I love the little dipes I made for dd. I lost one of the snap fittings for my press and didn't have any velcro, so I just used a pin.

Good job!
Have you made fitteds before? It looks very nice, but remember that the soaker needs to be LONGER than the diaper shell because the elastic will stretch(even a little bit) to be snug on the legs if the diaper fits well, and a soaker only as long as the diaper will leave a gap at the front without absorbency. This is ESPECIALLY important for boys and tummy-sleepers!
