So, when my wife was pregnant we decided to go with cloth diapers. We did a lot of research and bought a ton of fabrics. (we live in downtown LA, Just blocks away from the fashion district) We even special ordered PUL (Polyurethane Lined) fabric. I bought a serger and I made one diaper! We called it the $200 diaper. My daughter was born and we just didn't have time for crafty endeavors. Which is why I had only made the one. I sent half of the material to my mom who made a bunch of diapers. Our daughter has since outgrown them. So I finally eeked out some time to make more. Here is a sample:
The absorbent liner is made from Ikea towels (Cheaper than buying birdseye by the yard) and the shell is layer of PUL and Board short material from shop that only sells tropical prints. they fit our little surfer girl Just right and she loves them!
I used a pattern for the "Very basic all in one cloth diaper"from verybaby.com. Sewing was a bit challenging as the PUL tended to stick to the presser foot. It was better to sew with the PUL down but it can slip and wrinkle easily. You have to be careful how you pin it together too, poking holes in it could defeat the waterproofing. It did make a cool popping sound when it was sewn. I'm very pleased with way they turned out.
