Our Spindle to Sashes Experience!

I was excited when Spindle to Sashes sent me their One Size Fits All Cloth Diaper Velcro sewing pattern to try out for my One Size Diaper Event. I have tried numerous times in the past to sew various types of cloth diapers from different patterns. You can read about my experience plus see a great list of sources for materials on my guest post at HappilyDomestic.

I received the One Size Fits All Cloth Diaper Velcro by email and it was easy to print out and assemble the pattern together. First, I read through the pattern to make sure I had all the materials I needed. The pattern was very simple to understand. I still had left over PUL from previously sewing diapers. I picked up some elastic and 1/2 inch velcro at a local store. The pattern calls for 1 1/2 inch velcro, but the store was out. However, when sewing this pattern I highly recommend using Aplix which is a better brand than Velcro. You can find a list of resources that sell Aplix on my guest post. 

The diaper was easy to cut and piece together. I was able to sew it with no problems. However, I did mess up with the elastic in the legs although you really can't tell from the pictures. The finished product turned out good and functional (just don't look too closely at the workmanship!). I am happy to find a one size pattern that fits Ethan well and doesn't require a snap press.

My Favorite Features of the Spindle to Sashes One Size Fits All Velcro Sewing Pattern!
  • Very simple! I didn't find myself scratching my head and saying "huh? do what?" like I do with typical sewing patterns.
  • Great affordable price.
  • The pattern uses velcro (aplix) which is a great way for anyone to start sewing cloth diapers since there is no investment with a snap press.

BUY IT! You can purchase directly from Spindle to Sashes.


WIN IT! Spindle to Sashes is giving away one One Size Fits All Velcro, One Size Fits All Snap, Sized Diaper Cover, & PEACE Cloth Diaper Downloadable Sewing Patterns to a Take Time to Smell the Rose reader! That is 4 different cloth diaper patterns!
