Buttercup Soaker

The pattern is finally done!  This is a little wool soaker style wrap for cloth diapering families.  The linen stitch in the body makes it perfect for overnights, and the ribbing on the back and legs make it a really nice fit.  I’m making a couple of these for my nephews, and I’m hoping the last one will be done very soon!  These might appear in my store at some point too…when I get there!
For now, I’m making it available as a PDF download for those who want to make it for themselves, or to sell in your own stores.  My only request is that if you sell this soaker, you are the one who put the love and care into making it, and you give credit to the design where it is due.  A link to this page would be appreciated.

And just because it is fun, here’s Solveig modeling it for you.

And here is her playing peek-a-boo.

Sigh.  She’s getting so big.

    Cute, cute, cute! I love the color contracts of the buttons against the pink soaker! It really fits Solveig well, too. Great job!!!

    I don’t have any experience with soakers, but when you were in the hospital and I brought you that Wool Wash Bar of soap….it is suppose to be good for cleaning the wool and adding lanolin to aid in moisture protection….but maybe you just wash yours in the washing machine. :) Since I doubt my own kids will chose the cloth diaper path, I will just have to enjoy seeing this sweet soaker on your little sweetie. :)

    would like to know if you made this pattern to be able to fit a loose diaper like a prefold underneath?
    why did you make it with buttons?
