Journey's Nite Nite Diaper
Stephanie is busily making larger diapers for Journey. This time she's making fitted diapers without the waterproof cover (called "all-in-ones" or "AIO"). AIO's tend to leak more than diapers with separate covers, plus having just a few covers will be cheaper than using the waterproof material on all diapers, and the drying time is much faster.
After cutting out all the diaper layers (birdseye, velour (for the layer next to baby's skin) and super-absorbent microfiber terry) she was short one birdseye layer but had more of the terry, so it made sense to make a super-absorbent night time diaper. To make it easier to identify, Grandma embroidered it!
