Side-Snapping Katrina's Soaker

 Katrina's soaker patterns can be easily modified to make side-snapping (or velcro) covers.
All you do is extend the sides of the body piece about 3/4" at the sides.  Then you don't sew the leg and waist pieces all the way to the ends, and just fold over the edges of the body piece so you have the thicker edges for applying snaps.

 Then just apply your snaps or velcro.
 Go Hawks!   ;)

 Sea-hawks.... I have mentioned I am in Seattle before, right?  ;)


  1. I'm new to this, I'm 8 months pregnant and trying to learn all I can about cloth diapering before my baby come, I've been trying to build a stash using only your patterns your web site is my go to site. I love the side snaps, in other words it seems like a hassle trying to pull these off and on a baby. Is these suitable for the hot summer's in Atlanta, Ga?

    1. They're more breathable than PUL. It might be a good option if you can find a good repellant fleece. Also, they double as shorts, so no need for pants (which aren't good over fleece covers anyway due to wicking.)

    2. What kind of fleece did you use here?

  2. just wanted to say thanks for all your info - your blog is SO helpful! and also, GO HAWKS! i'm a seattle expat living in niner country - so i am always happy when i see seahawks gear!
