Have you ever dreamed up the perfect diaper and searched for it online with no success? For those of us sewing challenged the option to just “whip up a prototype” is absolutely laughable. Although in my head I can make an entire wardrobe…either I’m deceiving myself into thinking sewing is easy or I have way too much confidence.
Despite my lack of talent there are many WAHMs out there sweating over original patterns to create that perfect diaper we are desperately seeking. Krysta of Tot Wraps is one of those innovative WAHMs that had a dream and didn’t stop at the dream. She pushed on to bring us the Tot Wraps Dream Diaper. Here is Krysta’s story:
When I started cloth diapering back in 2000, I had my dream diaper envisioned in my head. I wanted an all-in-one type diaper that fit all sizes. But, what was available then and even now never fit my idea of the perfect diaper.
Everything I saw either had complicated snap systems, bulky fold-overs, long dry times, were not all-in-ones, only really fit when the child wore a medium, or were a pocket that always had to be stuffed.
So, after a gentle prodding by my local store I decided I could design my perfect diaper. After several months of pattern drafting and testing, I have made what I consider and what I hope you consider the perfect, dream diaper.
The Tot Wraps Dream Diaper, is a true one-size, all-in-one diaper that has all the features you need in a diaper. It is a quick drying diaper that is trim enough for a newborn, yet has full coverage and enough absorbency for a toddler.
The Dream Diaper includes a pocket opening for you to increase absorbency and allow for thorough cleaning. The waterproof outer rolls in on the leg and tummy to prevent leaks and wicking. There are no separate parts, and it uses a simple two snap system to shorten the rise. The Dream Diaper is so thin and trim it will fit under any clothing, just like a disposable does. Really, the only thing I can think of to make this a better diaper is for it to be self-cleaning!
The Dream Diaper comes in several solid colors and fun prints. The inner is complimentary color of cotton velour, with organic bamboo velour as an option. For complete details please see the Tot Wraps website.
Krysta is a married, homeschooling, cloth diapering WAHM to four children ages 8 down to 17 months. Sewing and design has always been a part of her life. Krysta’s first design, that she remembers anyway, were dolls she made as Christmas presents when she was almost 6 years old.
