Wow, these are awesome looking! Did you use a pattern, or is it your own design? They're so clean and smooth looking.

I'd love to be able to make anything at all that looked that good.

Thanks! I had a few free patterns I was playing around with and took what I liked from each one to make my own.

I think diaper-making looks a lot harder than it actually is. Most of it is just simple straight-stitching and some zig-zag. Nothing too impressive.

these are so cute!  I haven't been brave enough to use cloth ones, but was thinking about making some.  Why are the insides white? I am just wondering as it seems like they would stain.  What kind of fabric works best?  You did a great job on these, many kudos!

Thanks. The insides are white because that's the cheapest flannelette they had for sale at fabricland Smiley Stains don't look nice, but I'm not too concerned with it, diapers are gross anyway, but they're necessary, so I just have to live with it. Fabric goes by preference really. Some prefer bamboo velour, microfleece, terry... Anything that will be soft and wick moisture away from baby's bum.

You just made me fall in love with AIO cloth diapers with snaps!  I haven't big about snaps because they just seem harder to close than velcro & such.  Please tell me you are going to post a great detailed tutorial!  Great job on the fabulous & trendy AIO cloth diapers! Love them! Smiley

These are great!  I am slowly building up my sewing skills to be able to make some fitteds.  Hopefully before my DD is out of diapers . . . . .   Wink

These look great! I spend a bunch on Fuzzy Bunz before I bought my snap press and started sewing my own pocket diapers for my DD.  She's nearly potty trained now. Is it odd that I'm gonna miss cloth diapers?  Grin

I am so impressed with your AIO diapers. I have looking on the internet at every site I come across for an AIO pattern that uses snaps- and they just are not there. Yours look like they might be pocket diapers? I found some really great pocket diaper patterns- could I modify them to make them into AIOs? What's the difference?I am

These dipes look great!  I use BG 2.0's and think snaps would have been the way to go if I had to do it all over again!

Thank you Smiley There is a link here that has a few different styles of cloth diaper patterns http://www.thenappynetwork.org.nz/diy.php Most pictures show velcro and snap positions so you can use either. The ones I made here are AIO's, not pocket diapers. Pocket diapers often consist of one outer waterproof layer and one inner layer that wicks moisture away from the skin and there is an opening either in the back or front of the diaper (a pocket) where you put absorbant soakers. An AIO has the soaker sewn in so it's All-In-One. Any pattern can be modified into an AIO as long as you add a sufficient amount of soaker material. You can always use inserts without pockets too and add them right onto the diaper for extra absorbtion.
