How about a fun “mini” fashion review for some 4th of July inspiration? I’ve gotten together some star-spangled diapers and accessories for the children in anticipation of celebrating Independence Day!
This is a custom-made Cow Patties one-size AI2 diaper. The red fleece lining and red snaps perfectly compliment the cute patriotic cotton print outer. Our diaper included a snake-style bamboo fleece insert that you can either snap or lay in.
For Susanna, I turned to one of my favorite sources for affordable and cute WAHM covers – Tibeca at Baby Monkeys. She makes sized and one-size covers starting at just $5.00! Tibeca and I collaborated on the design of an “All-American” cover which features a crisp white PUL outer, blue star fold-over elastic, red snaps and sparkling embroidery on the rear.
These little bloomers were purchased at Wal-Mart many years ago and were handed down to Susanna from Catherine. They look pretty darn cute paired with a red, white and blue Wholesale Princess headband that I bought just last week for only $2.25!
We found something with a patriotic flair for Catherine, too: this very charming “Lady Liberty” hair clip, handmade by Melanie Gipson of Violet’s Buds.
Of course, you don’t have to spend money on custom diapers and accessories to get the right look for the 4th of July. You might already have something red, white or blue in your stash that can be paired with a patriotic t-shirt, hair bow or headband.
I was browsing Kelly’s Closet the other day and found three Applecheeks envelope covers that would work really well as “4th of July” diapers: Cherry Tomato is red and white, St. Lucia is bright blue with white snaps and Twilight is dark blue and white! Kelly’s Closet also has the adorable AppleCheeks swim diapers line in these colors.
If you are doing some summer cloth diaper shopping, I’ve got a great Kelly’s Closet coupon code to share: FUNANDSUN will get you $5 off an order of $25 or more!
We love wearing something special to celebrate a holiday! How about you and your children?
