Being an advocate for cloth diapers is important to me. I sooo wish I had given them a chance right from the beginning with my oldest son. I didn’t hear much about them back then and what I did hear was pretty negative. My cloth diapering journey began when he was 15 months old and my youngest was in cloth from about two weeks old. They’re both still in cloth diapers and we love them. Here’s a quick tutorial for a cloth diaper key chain. Maybe the little cutesy diaper on your key chain will spark up a conversation about cloth diapers and you can be an advocate. Even in a small way, spreading the word about the health and economic benefits of cloth diapers can make a big difference in the life of a new mama (or dad!) on the fence about cloth.
- Fabric Scraps – Three small scraps will work. I use charm squares or 4X4 squares from my quilting stash.
- Snaps – I use KAM Snaps size 16. You could also use velcro, or just add buttons.
- Interfacing – I prefer Heat n Bond sewable. Quilt batting would also work.

- The CD Key Chain Pattern: CDKeyChain Do not fit to page or scale, print actual size. Please do not sell this pattern as it is my own.
The slide show below will show you the steps to create your key chain. It’s a quick project and a lot of fun. The slide show starts with the picture of three fabric scraps and the pattern. You can pause the slide show at anytime or go back.
