Welcome to the Australian home of the Hippy Hippy Snap! A trim, hip snapping nappy. With the slim line look, and no wing droop of a side snap, but without the fight trying to get it on baby! The HHS fastens towards the front like a front fastening nappy.

I am a licensed Hippy Hippy Snap seamstress. This pattern has been tried, tested and loved by hundreds of babies... go on, why don't you give one a go?

I am also an approved Fattycakes seamstress!

Shiny new labels and a shiny new business!

I am so excited! My new labels are here! Don't they look great? Thanks to my darling husband for designing the logo xx

Introducing 'ikis cloth'!

I don't have plans to open and stock a store yet... until uni slows down, I will only be open for a limited amount of customs as time permits.

From the first time I sewed up a Hippy Hippy Snap, I just fell in love with the fit. It is nice and trim through the crotch, but still wide enough to stuff as a pocket nappy, and has enough bum coverage to contain everything that baby can ahem, 'throw' at it! It is great for chunky thighed, skinny waited babies (the shape of my girls), but is reported to be a great fit for petite babies too! It also has a decent rise... I find many of the current trim style nappies are too low in the rise, resulting in unflattering 'plumber's crack' which, let's face it, is not a good look on
anyone. Even that gorgeous baby of yours!

How do you get your hands on an ikis cloth HHS?

At the moment I am only selling via custom orders. Email me at ikiscloth @tpg.com.au (remove space between the @ symbol).

These are fully customisable. You choose size, outer (minky with hidden PUL, plain poly PUL or cotton print with partially hidden PUL), inner (microfleece or velour), and style (AI2, AIO, Pocket or fitted). You can even choose the colour snaps and absorbency levels!

Prices are as follows:

Budget Fleece pocket (2 layer domestic fleece) $15
Plain PUL pocket $16
Polyester Print PUL pocket $22
Minky pocket $19-$22 (depending on type of minky)

Upgrade to AI2 or AIO +$9.
Bamboo fleece (heavyweight) trifold for pockets +$7

As I am a busy mum with two toddlers, and also trying to finish of my university degree, please expect at least a 2 week wait on completion of custom orders. If I will not be able to get them completed within this time frame I will let you know before ordering... if I can get them done quicker than that then I will also let you know!

Fabric Options

Pictures of available outer fabrics are available as follows:

Cotton prints: http://picasaweb.google.com/ikiscloth/CottonPrintsForNappies#
Minky: http://picasaweb.google.com/ikiscloth/Minky#
PUL and Fleece: http://picasaweb.google.com/ikiscloth/FleeceAndPUL#

As I get new fabric in it will be updated with all the minky (and other fabric) goodness!!

For inners, at the moment I have white cotton velour, natural (lush) organic bamboo velour, white, yellow and pink microfleece, black and green suedecloth.

If there is something you want that I do not have listed, it pays to ask because I might either a) have it coming in, or b) be about to place a fabric order.

All in Twos

Only one snap in to make laundry easier. The snap in consists of a double petal contour soaker, with the bottom layer extra long, so it can be folded over, and then flipped over again to the middle for girls, or the front for boys, giving absorbency where it is needed, but leaving the nappy trim!

From ikis cloth


Ikis Cloth pocket nappies have the pocket at the back of the nappy, with both the inner and outer elasticised to prevent the stuffer from poking out. The pocket opening is nice and wide for ease of stuffing. I generally only make the medium and large sizes as pockets, as the smaller sizes are too hard to stuff. It can be done on request (but would require the crotch to be widened somewhat).

Pocket nappies allow for total adjustment of absorbency, with no fussing with snapping things in. Once stuffed, they make great daycare nappies.. there is no way for the nappy to get 'messed' up, just a smooth, stay dry microfleece inner. They also make cleaning soiled nappies a breeze, as there are no flaps or gaps for any poo to get stuck in!

Pockets are sold without stuffers. Stuffers can be purchased from me if needed, at a price of $7 per bamboo trifold. Trifolds are a
rectangle of two layers of heavyweight bamboo fleece, that are folded into three (or for $8 a larger quadefold can be purchased), totalling 6 layers of absorbency. They are very quick drying.
