With the birth of my youngest son, I entered the world of cloth diapering. I have fallen in love with using cloth and have been finding ways to be "greener" and more earth friendly. I want to spread this love with other moms and dads and so I began sewing in May 2012 and decided to open O-Dee-O Designs in June. I make PUL pockets and covers, woven outer pockets and covers, upcycled T-shirt diapers, and of course the fleece covers and pockets. I also make accessories like wipes, wet bags, and taggie blankets. My favorite item to make is the upcycled T-Shirt diapers. They allow me to be very creative! But a close second is anything to do with fleece!
Katie let me choose the fleece print for the cover that she made me, and I picked out this cute hedgehog print. Her fleece covers have two layers of fleece, with an extra soaker layer sewn down the middle. The cover that I received is a one size cover and has cross over snaps on both flaps. I really like when one size diapers have the cross over snaps on both sides because then I don't have to remember to start with one side every time!
The cover has nice wide leg elastic and back elastic that are completely encased in the fleece. We have not had any red marks with this diaper at all! This picture above shows the diaper on the smallest rise settings.
A close up of the cute hedgehog print! Katie has really great prints to choose from on her Facebook page. It was a hard decision to narrow it down to one print!
A close up of Katie's adorable labels! The label has held up great through a bunch of washings too.
This picture shows the diaper all the way open with the largest rise. It is a great, roomy cover and will definitely fit Ava for a long time.
Here is the inside, where you can see that there is a third soaker layer in the wet zone. This has been so great for us to have in a cover. We have had zero leaks while using this cover!
Here is the diaper opened up. You can see that there are two sets of rise snaps, giving three rise size options. For Ava (24 lbs and 30 inches) we have been using this all the way opened up because we use bulky fitteds for night time.
Here is a rear view on the bum. This cover has given us a great trim fit and I love how Katie took the time to center one of the hedgehogs on the back. It's just so cute!
Ava was a little too busy with her toys to let me get much of a side shot, but you can see that with an average sized fitted underneath this cover has a nice trim fit!
This front view of the cover was about as good as I could get with a wiggly toddler! Ava has a very skinny waist so we have the flaps of the cover meeting in the middle and we get a great fit that way.
Overall, this has been a great addition to our cover stash, and I have really liked using it for night time and nap times. We haven't had any leaks and the breathable aspect of the fleece has really helped with Ava's occasional teething related diaper rash. Katie was so great to work with and I highly recommend her covers!
Katie has offered to give away a custom fleece cover to one of our readers! She has a fantastic selection of fleece and our winner will have a great time choosing a print for their baby.
