My business needs a name!

My mom suggested "Dapper Diapers and Duds" because I am thinking of specializing in unique boyish prints... there are so many adorable girly fabrics out there, all the moms of boys are getting neglected.  As much as I like the name my mom suggested I sort of have my heart set on something not so cutesy... more unique and memorable.  I'm totally hitting a wall as far as creativity with names at the moment so I'm thinking of having some sort of "name my business!" contest.  I just have to think of a sweet prize... I thought of giving away a free diaper but I'm not so sure that would appeal to a lot of people I know :)

I wanted to add something about the whole cloth diapering thang.  The best BEST invention ever that has kept me going through the grossest poop is this wonderful device:

It attaches to the base of your toilet and when you need to clean out a NASTY diaper, all you do is spray the mess and flush it away.  I know a lot of people who just swish the dirty diaper in the toilet bowl and wring it out but there is just something extra gross about sticking your hands in toilet water. Amiright? If it wasn't for this genius little tool I don't know that I'd still be cloth diapering.  I highly recommend it.

I'll leave you with a few photos of a couple more diapers I've sewn.  I'm getting very close to feeling good about the pattern I'm using.  I've done a bunch of tweaking here and there and other than perfecting my inserts, the outer pattern is pretty much there.  I'm excited!  It's getting so much easier.

Next order of business?  FABRIC SHOPPING.  Now that I'm more comfortable with the sewing part I'm getting really excited to do the fun creative stuff like pick out perfect fabric.  I want to find more saucy prints like the pin-up one I posted yesterday. Sooo fun.

Oh, PS ... the black and pink one above is reversible... how fun is that?  I'm going to have to try it out on Sylvan, poor lad.


  1. I'm sticking with "Sir Sylvan's Diaper Emporium". Because really. How can an emporium not be awesome?

  2. Dapper Naps.
    Dapper Traps.
    Bud's Duds.
    Bad Lads.

    Ok, perhaps I need to stop rhyming.

    Chic Cheeks. (Too girly, methinks.)
    Dumptrunks. (Couldn't resist the pun.)

    Do we get a prize of a couple freebie dipes if/when a child is birthed if one of our suggestions is chosen?

  3. BAhhaha...dumptrunks all the way.

  4. Oh wow! So many good options!! hahaha you girls are hilarious! I need you all on my creative team. Sharon, I could give you a diaper to either keep for when you have a baby that needs diapering or you could always gift it... spread the love :D
