Introduction: Work Belt and Jeans Diaper Cover

Picture of Work Belt and Jeans Diaper Cover

I kept seeing things online for making a work belt for babies and I wanted to make one for my nephew but I also wanted to add a diaper cover to it. So this is what I came up with. Just a rough draft of it that I used to make it. If you find any errors please let me know and I will adjust it. So far he does not fit it so once it fits him I will let you all know what size it is when completed.

I used a size G hook for everything.

Step 1: Belt

Brown

Row 1: Ch 46. Turn.

Row 2: Dc in second Ch from hook and in each Ch till end. (45) Turn

Row 3: DC in each Dc and then around the side and back around in other loops of ch to beginning ch.

Finish off.

Step 2: ​Tool Holsters-Large

Brown

Row 1: Ch 11 turn.

Row 2: DC in second ch from hook and then every ch across (10)

Row 3-11: DC in each DC across (10)

Stitch in a loop so belt can be put through.

Alternate would be:

Rnd 1: Ch 11 then sl st in first ch to form a loop. Be careful not to twist the chain.

Rnds 2-11: DC in every st around (10)

This alternate one will make it so you don't have to stitch it into a loop.

Step 3: Tool Belt -Small (Make 4)

Brown

Row 1: Ch 8 turn.

Row 2: DC in second ch from hook and then across (7)

Row 3-11: DC in each st across. (7)

Stitch in a loop so belt can be put through.

Alternate would be:

Rnd 1: Ch 8 then sl st in first st. Careful not to twist the chain.

Rnd 2-11: DC around (7)

Stitch 2 together so they form a loop and a holster.

Stitch the other two to the large one from previous step to make 2 holsters on that loop.

SC around each to make them pretty.

Step 4: ​Diaper Cover

Blue

Row 1: Ch 16. Turn.

Row 2-8: DC in next ch and across (15)

Row 9: 2 DC in first st, DC next 13 st, 2 DC in last st. (17)

Row 10: 2 DC in first st, DC next 15 st, 2 DC in last st. (19)

Row 11: 2 DC in first st, DC next 17 st, 2 DC in last st. (21)

Row 12: 2 DC in first st, DC next 19 st, 2 DC in last st. (23)

Row 13-15: DC in each st across (23)

Should be a total of 14 rows of DC.

Step 5: Finishing

Stitch Tool belt to the top of the diaper cover. Add buttons in appropriate spots. Stitch holsters onto belt. Sc around to make pretty.

I also added some stitching to the Diaper cover part to make it look like it had pockets and a fly. Adding those makes it really look like a pair of jeans. I did my stitching in Brown not only to match the belt but to make it look more like real jeans. I also added Belt Loops that are optional as the belt is stitched to the diaper cover, but again, adds to the look. I made them with a row of Ch sts a few chs longer than the belt is wide. I then added a belt buckle for more authentic look. If I remember right I did a chain the same length as the belt loops then added enough to loop over the belt and around to the beginning ch. Then I turned it and Sc around leaving just enough to sit under the belt. For the latch of the belt buckle I just added a series of chains and then Sc down the one side and attached it to the buckle. I poked that through the belt and then stitched it to the buckle. It doesn't move but I have a button under it that attaches to the belt. I did not keep track of any of those sts so I cannot tell you specifics on making those additional pieces. I gave it to my sister-in-law and it has since then sat with all the stuff that is still too big for the baby. If he ever fits into it I will count those sts for you all.
