Updating A Favorite Pattern

6 years ago I started my Etsy shop. I had made preemie outfits for a friend’s grandbabies (quadruplets) and had so many requests for the pattern that I decided to take the dive and sell that pattern and called it Prince/Princess Diaper Set. One pattern led to more, the second pattern being infant sizes of the same pattern.

Prince/Princess Diaper Set Pattern

Over the last 6 years, I’ve had requests (quite regularly) to extend the sizes up to 24 mo. I am happy to say that I’ve finally finished that task and have combined the extended sizes with both the Preemie pattern as well as the infant sizes previously offered. The newly revised pattern is still called Prince/Princess Diaper Set & Daygown and the sizes are Preemie (4 – 5 lb.) – 24 mo.

The instructions to make the top into a daygown are also included. I love the daygown length!

It was no small feat to update this pattern. When I created the first PDF pattern, I had very little knowledge on how to do it easily. It took a few years and a lot of research to get it right. Whew! But, to go back to the old files and turn them into new ones was quite the task. I had to do that before working on the larger sizes.

Of course, with the updated patterns, I felt I should also update the directions. While they are pretty much the same, I used a better format to create the instructions. So, overall, the entire pattern is improved! I hope my future customers will enjoy it!

On another note – I’ve also had requests to make my Sweet Cheeks smocked diaper cover in adult sizes. 😳 No worries – that won’t be happening. LOL! Summertime is the perfect time for these to be made and worn!!!

That’s the latest and the greatest from my design room!

Happy stitching this summer!!!
