hi I'm new on here, your nappie is good, i would also go with pul or here in the UK,we have the pul wraps or as i used the good old fashioned rubbers but with soft edgings they were great. i also make washable nappies my DD is 2 yrs and dry day and night, i just love cloth nappies.

I'd love a detailed tute!!! That would be so great ... I am a little unsure of how to layer the diapers ... and I am ordering the PLU. (That Wazoodle price seems too good to pass up) They look like they have quite a bit for diaper making so if anyone could tell me exactly what I would need to make about 10 in each size of small, medium and large that would be great!
thanks!

Ok, I'm working on it, this is really cool.  I just got some PUL from happy frog and it isn't anything like I thought it would be.  It's very soft and pliable.  I checked the wazoodle site and they seem to have really good prices, they also sell just the film that can be used as a layer, like I used the shower curtain.  It is the cheapest and I am going to try some of that first.  I also checked on ebay and they are selling it there too, mostly in 1 yd pieces.  I prefer to get more than 1 yd at a time, but that's me.  The tute that I am presently working on will be for a newborn to 10 lbs, mainly because I haven't made any other sizes yet.  But the tute will be for HOW to make one so it will be the pattern that will need to be adjusted for the different sizes.  Like I said in an earlier post, I got a disposable diaper from a friend and took it apart and made the pattern from that.  So I figure I need to get another larger size and do the same thing. mainly because it has this gusset thing for the sides and the patterns I found on the net didn't have that feature.  Everyone I have shown them to seem to like that feature the best.  Well, I am helping my daughter move so I need to get busy.  I will try really hard to get the tute done and posted.  Please, be patient.

The PUL flim doesnt hold up well IMHO. The tuturoial I posted for internal guessets can be used with ANY diaper pattern and ANY size! It uses one piece of fabric which would be much more comfortable.

procaer is the same outer fabric as what's used in kushies diapers.

i had a 5pack of those diapers and they wore out in less than 6 months.

so personally, i stick to pul.  the pul will last.
