cute!!!!  i really like the heart on the outside!  Smiley

are you going to attach aplix/touchtape or snaps? 

i'm guessing it's a fitted - or did you put a hidden layer of pul behind the denim?

Very cute!
I was wondering about how is denim with absorbency?
I have made a few cloth diapers from old blankets, but it is all about experimenting at this point.
Nice work!!

I'm not going to use aplix or snaps (though may have to cave on this for my husband). I much prefer good, old-fashioned pins.

I thought about PUL but try to stay away from it. I have plenty of storebought cloth diapers if I want the PUL experience. I'm more into fitteds because then I can control the breathability factor. I prefer wool covers most of the time, and coverless at home. The only problem with this, though, is that then I have to cover my cute little diapers. 

mtblaura: I'm actually not sure how the denim will be because I haven't put it into action yet. It's 100% cotton so I figure it'll be fine. The inside is flannel and I have an internal 6-layer soaker which is supposed to do most of the absorbing, of course. If it gets to the denim I've probably left the diaper on too long. Embarrassed

I've done denim before.  It works GREAT!  and benefit - the fabric won't wear out!!  (you know how flannel gets threadbare looking after a couple years of washings?  denim doesn't!)

I used to use 'real' pins all the time, then I discovered my wonderful snap press - and I even put snaps on my prefolds.  My dh really likes that!  Never has to hunt for pins and nothing to snag in wash anymore - I HATE aplix/touchtape!  Added benefit is the snaps hold well when child is getting ot outer limits of size on a diaper.  aplix doesn't hold well at those limits - they unstick when child is moving around. . .

I prefer fitteds and diaper covers, too!  I don't do wool covers, though because I am afraid i'll end up felting the covers inadvertantly.  (I have 2 in diapers at once and every day, I just dump the 3 pails of diapers in the washer and it all comes out clean - including the toys the boys throw in the pails, lol.

nice work - i look forward to seeing more of your diapers as you make them!  I recnetly made a couple/few dozen diapers - if you look in this forum you'll find the pics - they're under 'chloe toes' . . .

Lovely diapers! The brocade is such a neat idea. I've never seen one like that before. And the size engraved snaps are an excellent idea. Maybe DH will buy me a snap press for Christmas seeing as he's so afraid of pins.
