Mickey Mouse Inspired Diaper Cover Crochet Pattern

Mickey Mouse Diaper Cover Crochet Pattern

Posted by Cristina Barnes on March 14, 2011 at 7:18 PM

Hi Everyone,
Before we get to the pattern I wanted to say a few things. I started writing my patterns because as much as I have looked around there are very rarely good Free patterns. And I have purchased patterns that were great. So I wanted to offer what in my opinion are "good" patterns for free but there is a catch. If you use my free pattern they are for your personal use or for you to make as a gift or donation to charity. If you would like to sell items made with my pattern I ask that you purchase the pattern from me. I think that is a reasonable request and my patterns will never exceed $4.99. They will be emailed to you in PDF Format. A lot of work goes into writing pattern a lot of crocheting and pulling apart because it isn't looking great and restarting. So I just ask that you respect that and that way I will continue to post patterns for you guys :) I would like to ask that if you do make something to sell with my patterns to place a l link to my website. Also I do ask that you do not repost my patterns free or purchased. If you'd like to mention my patterns somewhere post a link back to my blog. Ok with that said here goes my rendition of Mickey Mouses Diaper cover! Please leave comments as I love to hear what you think.

To purchase pattern just go here :) Micky Mouse Diaper Cover Crochet Pattern

  1. Christina,
    I recently bought this pattern on Etsy. I absolutely love it. I also purchased the flowered diaper cover and headband. I have had so much fun the past few weeks coming up with different color combinations from my "stash" of yarn. Using the color recommendation on the flowered set pattern, I did make one for the surrogate baby that I just delivered last month. When her mom sends me a photo, I will send you a copy. The mickey set, I made as a gift for a friend. I love using double strands for the diaper cover too! It just turns out so much nicer. I am even thinking of doing some military themed variations for my parents serving overseas and even here in the US.
    Am I correct that since I have purchased the patterns, that I can sell my finished items? I will totally list you for creative credit of course. I also could list your Etsy shop if others wanted to buy the pattern themselves. I didn't want to do anything without asking you first so please let me know your thoughts.
    These crochet up so fast!!! And the directions are easy to follow too!!! I am thoroughly enjoying your talent as a pattern maker. Thank you so much!

  2. Good Evening Jennifer,
    Congrats on the Baby! Being a surrogate is such a wonderful gift and takes a very special person.:)I would LOVE to see the photos!

    Thank you for your sweet words I'm so flattered... (where is the blushing smiley!)

    So funny I'm also working on some military themed one. I'm retired Army myself:) My thoughts and prayers are always will all of our service men and women.

    You are correct as far as the patterns. Anyone that purchases the patterns are more than welcome to sell as many finished items as their hands can me :) I know that posting them on my blog is me trusting that people will not sell unless they buy the pattern. I believe there are more honest people like yourself, than not.

    Well have a good night and thanks for joining my blog! :)

  3. Christina,

    I posted photos on my blog The Army set turned out really cute (I was Army so of course I made that one first). The hat was made up as I went along. I have an idea for Marine Dress Blues too : )
    Thank you so much for your talented pattern writing!
