I just finished 14 small, 14 medium, and one large diaper cover.  Whew.

I worked on them yesterday while dh watched the kids for a couple hours, then into the wee hours of the morning this morning and then just finished putting the last snap on a few minutes ago.  Whew!  I am one tired pregnant mommy!



The single large diaper cover was from a cut I received from a coop and wasn't large enough to make 2 covers, so the boys will have to fight over it, lol.  Smiley

The FOE is all from thisendup.  The 28 small and medium is all sandwich pul from lovinbundles.

My next kidlet should now have enough diaper covers.  Smiley  (next kidlet when s/he grows will use the large diaper covers already in circulation on my 2 kids now.)  Smiley

Don't they look cool???  I really like the yellow/green combo A LOT!  Smiley

I admire you young mothers so much. My first used cloth, that was 1969, but then we used dis. for next three. Glad to see people are getting greener. You not only did alot of work, they look really well done.
Just curious, it says covers, so how do thye work?

Thanks, ya'll!  Smiley

as for how they work, I personally prefer fitted diapers and prefolds under the diaper covers.  (diaper covers are waterproof barrier.)  I am in process of making 24 more small fitted diapers and 36 medium fitted diapers.  (as in, I have the materials, but need to get cutitng and sewing, lol.)

Here is a link to some of the fitteds I've already finished for next kidlet:

15 small chloe toes fitted diapers:

a close up of 3 of them (yes, that's BROCADE fabric!  *loveeyes*) (I did put an extra full body of flannel behind the brocade in the event the brocade does not hold up long term, so the diapers will still be very practical and usable.)


12 small very baby serged edges fitted diapers:


here are 3 diaper covers i made recently - these are size large - 2 are for my kids in diapers, one is for a friend who loved the fabric.  Smiley


oh and some of my prefolds - I tie dyed them a couple years ago - they STILL look this great!!!  Smiley  I also added snaps to them so they are more like a fitted with ease of use.  Smiley

who will have 3 at once in cloth diapers when next kidlet arrives. . ..

Oh, I am so so impressed!! I used cloth diapers for my bunch, but with (ick ick) plastic pants and honking big pins. Wish I could get a do-over. (they're all grown up now Sad )  But there's always hope for grandbabies!!  And they'll wear these if I have any say in the matter!
BTW, a lot of my old cloth diapers are STILL in service here as dusters and cleaning rags. When they get totally tattered, they get used for car work.


You're awesome!

I am wanting to cd so bad and have been researching patterns on line.  I ENVY YOUR STASH!

Question:  Do you have a snap setter or do you send yours out?  and What pattern or dipe would you suggest for a skinnyish baby with big fat legs?

Aw, thanks!!!  I'm working diligently to have a really nice stash of diapers for the next baby.  I am doing it all assembly line - where I cut out all pieces, then put them together, then attach snaps, then sew in the soakers, then apply the FOE, then add the last of the snaps.  This way, I make more efficient use of my time.

I have a snap press and over 40 different colors of snaps, plus a LOT of engraved caps for whatever I want to do.  Smiley  (I'm totally addicted to my snaps and snap press, lol.)

I have a skinny kid AND a chunky kid.  Both fit REALLY REALLY well in the Chloe Toes pattern - that's the pictures you see of the brocade diapers if that helps you figure out which it is.  I bought the pattern from:  http://www.chloetoesboutique.com/store/Default.asp

Both kids - one is 3 1/2 and skinny, the other is 22 months and chunky wear size medium in the chloe toes pattern.  it fits differently than any other pattern on the market.  if you make one and it gaps funny, you will probably want to size DOWN - when I first started making them, based on prior experiences with other diaper patterns, I thought my kids would wear large - but they didn't fit the skinny kid well at all.  so i made mediums and realized that BOTH kids fit really good in them.  so that's why i'm making most of my new diaper stash out of chloe toes diaper pattern.

hth.  Smiley

Brilliant work!  I'm due with kiddo #1 in May and want to do cloth and want to make my own.  Only problem is that I really have no clue what options are out there.  Do you have any helpful links that you could share with me? 

Love, love, love the brocade.  Cheesy
