Those look awesome!  I like the off center snaps too. What did you use for the absorbent layers?

 I use mostly prefolds, with a few pocekt thrown in for nursery workers or others who would be confused by prefolds.

I've been thinking about trying some AIOs.  How much longer than others diapers do they take to dry?  What do you think the major advantaged over pockets are?

Oh and about stains.  I find that most wash out if you don't wait too long to wash (I wash either every other day, or every 3rd day) and it if dosen't wash out then drying in the sun gets most other stains out.

Thank you very much Smiley I used Zorb for the absorbant layers. It works well, but I find it to be stiffer than other material.

Drying time depends on the materials used in the AIO. There are some AIO's where the absorbant layer is sewn in only at the top so that it is more like a flap, that would make it dry much quicker than the ones that are completely sewn in. I don't think there is an advantage really, it just depends on your personal preference. Some find AIO's easier because it's all one piece so it's more convenient like a disposable.

Thanks for the tip on stains. I didn't realize the sun could help that way! now I can't wait for warmer weather so I can hang dry Smiley

Thank you so much! That website was fantastic. I can't wait to sew a trial pair! Smiley One last question- are yours one size or did you make ones for different ages/stages?

Glad you found the website helpful. The ones I made are all one size. Some look a little different because of how tight I pulled the elastic in the legs.

I love the colors! Super cute!

With my first son I made some diapers and covers, but found that I didn't want to actually use them Smiley So I ended buying some and saving the ones I made as keepsakes.

I know this is an older post, but I have to say I am SO impressed by these! I'm due in June with my first so I've been scouring the internet looking for a good pattern for snap AIO. These are stunning! Kudos to you!
