Hi! I’m Christine and I’ve been sewing from ever since I can remember. I started sewing for my daughter ten years ago, and I find so much joy in sewing for babies!
With my daughter, I used the synthetic, petroleum/plastic-based cloth diaper covers over cotton prefolds (or stuffed with prefolds). I made her many cloth diapers and clothes. As a new mother, my inquisitive, problem-solving nature was piqued. This led me to find out more about all kinds of things going on in our world, including farming practices as well as textiles, and eventually I discovered wool. (My daughter was already out of diapers, thanks to lots of EC). In 2008 I opened my etsy shop and sold organic cotton and hemp hoodies for kids.
When my son was born I was able to add hemp to my diaper stash and some wool. Then I decided to make some wool covers and I was hooked!! They were quite simply the cutest, comfiest, MOST EFFECTIVE, fun, and earth-friendly diaper solution I had ever experienced (and I experimented a LOT with my daughter). I got rid of all my plastic covers, and used wool exclusively. And I had such fun making them that I decided to add them to my shop when I re-opened it after his birth. I have since moved away from making hoodies and focus primarily on upcycled wool soakers, with a few organic accessories here and there.
I am currently cloth diapering my third baby, and he has quite a collection of mama-made woolies!
My experience cloth diapering three babies, and sewing for them has blessed me with lots of tips, tricks, and wisdom that I am so excited to share with you. I am working on a complete DIY Cloth Diapering with Wool course, as well as tips, recipes, and patterns, so stay tuned!
I am absolutely in love with wool diaper covers and would love to help you switch to wool, or find the wool you already know you need!
