My New Diaper Sewing Program – Babyville Boutique
Well, it’s time to let you all know what I’ve been working on for so long! It’s been a long road, but we have a very exciting program:
It’s a diaper sewing program! Diaper Sewing? Yep, that’s right. But these are not your mamas diapers! They are colorful and fun, and use modern conveniences like plastic snaps and adjustable tape (EZ Adjust Tape™). There are two books too: Cloth Diapers Made Easy! and Baby Essentials Made Easy! Each is 60 pages of full color Step-by-Step instructions for some very, very cute projects, if I do say so myself.
The Babyville Boutique DIY Diaper Sewing Program will be in Hancock Fabrics (select stores), JoAnn Fabrics (most stores), Hobby Lobby (all stores) and some independent fabric stores starting in September!
The diaper pattern, which can be used to make a variety of cloth diapers styles, is bound into the 60 page full color instruction book “Cloth Diapers Made Easy!” which includes sewing instructions for diaper covers, and a variety of diaper styles including a pocket diaper, snail shell and more.
Babyville Boutique will finally put coordinated diaper making supplies in one retail location for diaper sewing mamas, and includes PUL (10 darling prints and 13 solid colors), Coordinating FOE, Snaps, Snap Pliers, Embroidered Appliques, Embroidered Labels, Colored Hook and Loop Tape (EZ Adjust Tape™) and Buttons, plus the aforementioned Cloth Diaper Sewing Book and a 60 Page book “Baby Accessories You Can Make.” The PUL Fabric is available by the yard (double roll bolts) or in packages of three coordinating designs, with each diaper cut being a generous 21″ x 24″.
Babyville Boutique is produced by Prym® Consumer USA, who makes the Dritz® line of sewing notions and other high quality product lines. I can tell you that much attention has been paid to product testing for quality and performance of all the different products. Babyville Boutique™ has been in development many months!
A website and blog will launch soon with other features to inspire diaper sewing moms, including a Design Team of talented Diaper Sewing Moma!!! The site will be live in early September, but you can check out the home page now at: www.babyvilleboutique.com (http://www NULL.babyvilleboutique NULL.com) where you can sign up for notification when the full features of the site are live.

I hope that these products will help all DIY diaper sewing moms to more easily find quality supplies, and will also provide WAHM’s (Work at Home Moms with cloth diaper businesses) to finally have local access for supplies. I’m also excited that Babyville Boutique will help develop awareness and introduce many mamas to the benefits of using and sewing cloth diapers. I expect Babyville Boutique to create a new demand for home sewn cloth diapers. Consumers and Mom’s with sew-at-home businesses will benefit from being able to find quality supplies at their local store.
A class program is being developed and there may be opportunities to teach other moms about cloth diapers, and how to sew them at a local store.
I’ll be posting the more of the color coordinated product groups (PUL, FOE, Snaps, EZ Adjust Tape, etc.) in upcoming blog posts. For new, here is a sampling of the Mod Girl Coordinates available.
