by wool soaker---that's like the diaper cover, right???

I've been making fleecy ones and simply stuffing with microfiber, but I'd love to try wool and I have PLENTY of cute ones to felt! I saw one someone made with a wool sweater using all the seams, but I have no idea how they did that???

I was talking to another friend who was having this problem with her daughter. 
This was our solution:
She used 4 layers of quilting flannel.  Sewed the edges together.....  Cut into the basic diaper shape.  (Rectangle with cut outs for inner legs)  Then she just used Tshirt ribbing for the sides.  This way it was easy to get off and on.  Fabricland had a big sale...so each bedtime pants cost her about 2 dollars to make.
Hope this helps.

Your right, wool soaker usually means a diaper cover, but in this instance I mean using if for an internal soaker, to actually soak up, erm, liquid.

Here's a place to get you started on making wool diaper covers:

Yeah, that site is on page four, you'll need to go to the beginning.  There's another one I like, lemmie see if I can find it....Here ya go:

Hope these help!

ETA:  If you're using your sweater as a diaper cover, don't felt it all the way down, you want it to stretch a bit to fit over da heiny.

Dunno if this will work or not (yet... mine has the same problems yours does, and I have yet to find the "magic formula!") but in the camping section of your local Everymart they usually have these "camp towels" that claim to absorb some ridiculous amount... I can't remember the pricing on them, but maybe if they were used for the inserts? You might be able to cut down from 4 layers to 2, maybe even 1 if they work like they claim on the package!

My fleecemicrofiber combo was working-no leaks, but they were still so poofy, and a pain to have to do that much more laundry (every other day). I gave in  Embarrassed and bought goodnights. She was soo excited to get them, and actually hugged the package--she wanted to take it into the restaraunt, but I had to draw the line!
