I have a very close friend who is expecting a little girl very soon. This will be her first child and therefore first time being a Mom. I wanted to make her something really special and when I found out her theme was going to be Baby Minnie Mouse I knew what I had to make. A very good friend of hers also just had a baby boy so I decided to make them a matching set. I can’t to see them in their outfits and take pictures to share.

Minnie Baby Mouse Crochet Diaper Cover with Skirt

Diaper Cover:

For the diaper cover I used the following patterns:

For first part of the diaper cover you will start with – Crochet A Flower’s: Diaper cover pattern

However, I really liked the changes made by – Repeat Crafter Me: Mickey and Minnie Inspired Crochet Diaper Covers – the front tabs are slightly different and it makes the diaper cover more adjustable. I also wanted the skirt to overlap and be adjustable as well so I made my own changes for the skirt.

I know it’s a bit of a pain switching back and forth between the patterns but it will be worth it in the end.

I made the diaper cover part for both the Minnie and Mickey the same with buttons attached to the front for an adjustable closure.

As you can see in the picture above I did the main part white and the trim in Red for the Minnie diaper cover. Then I crocheted the skirt right onto the diaper cover to overlap the tabs. I wanted the actual diaper cover to work like a regular diaper but I also wanted the skirt to overlap on the side.

For the tail  – with black yarn

Ch 25, SC back up the Chain in the back loop so that you are going under the V’s. This will create another row of V’s across both sides, attach tail to the back of the diaper cover in the center of the 7th row, weave in ends.

Making the Skirt

Using your Red Yarn: Ch 10

Row 1: Lay diaper cover out with the inside open facing up. Attach to back loops of first St and SC across in back loops, you’ll have about (46 + 10 = 56), Ch 2, turn – *Note: Stitch count does not matter as long as you have the right amount of stitches for the scalloped edging on the last row. (See below)

Row 2: HDC in every St across, Ch 2, turn

Row 3: HDC in first St, 2 HDC in next St, repeat (HDC in next St, 2 HDC in next St) continue repeat across to the end of the row, Ch 3, turn

Row 4: DC in every St across, Ch 2, turn

Row 5: HDC in every St across, Ch 3, turn

Row 6: DC in every St across, Ch 2, turn

Row 7: HDC in every St across, Ch 3, turn

Row 8: DC in every St across, Ch 2, turn

Row 9: HDC in every St across to the end *Note* to do the scalloped edge for the last row you must have a multiple of 6 stitches plus 1, I ended up having to do 2 HDCs in the first and last Stitches from the previous row (row: 9) to get 85 Stitches (6 x 14 + 1 = 85)

Row 10: adding a scalloped edge – (skip 2 stitches, 5 double crochets in third stitch, skip next 2
stitches, single crochet in next stitch), repeat to end and tie off, weave in ends

Attach the two larger buttons on the front of the diaper like in the picture below.

Attach the other buttons around the skirt to make the polka dots.

I placed two of the buttons underneath the overlapped side of the skirt to secure that side down. Since you can use any space between the DCs as the button holes it keeps the skirt adjustable.

I did the pattern the same every row until row 9, where I Single Crocheted instead of Double since I was not weaving through a ribbon.
