this is ingenious! wow. the incredible amount of love that went into this is amazing. ive thought about using cloth diapers if/when i ever have children, and never even considered a modern take on them. i just thought of the old fashioned kind... but this, is so wonderful.

i love how you incorporated a modern design into a classic way of life. THIS ROCKS.

Just to clarify, my lazy method involves a dry pail, not a wet pail... and I have been known to use my washer as a wet pail on slow days, just for the ease of soaking the diapers in there. I wish I'd thought of the vinegar idea, *much* cheaper than the bac-out, but I do like that the bac-out literally has bacteria that eat the organic ickies in the diaper. Plus, I like the smell a whole lot better Wink It's lime-y.
(And just for the record, it's not "scented" - one of the ingredients that helps eat the ick is lime peel or lime peel extract or some such, it comes by the smell naturally)

Oh, wow now I didn't know about the lime thing.  That is so cool.  And I like the idea of the Bac-out eating the oragain ickies.  I like that, ickies.  LOL Grin.  And you are so right it sure would smell better than a pickle smell.  LOL.  What a good idea.

I love the elastic tabs. I wish I'd had crafty people sewing diapers for me when my kids were babes =D I've made plenty out of old t-shirts and flannel blankets, but mine weren't nearly that awesome!

I would suggest polyester thread though, when you use cotton thread to sew pul it tends to wick, I know you'd rather keep the wetness inside the diaper rather than let it eek out onto baby clothing and whatnot =) Have you tried washing and drying them yet?

I've been washing and drying one of them and so far so good, and that's the one with the shower curtain in it.  I did use cotton thread for the serger and polyester for the sewing machine.  I went and checked.  I forgot about the wicking matter, good point.  I also thought about using seam sealer for the PUL gussets.  The company says it will be safe to use and will wash well.  I tell you I have learned sooooo much from posting this one post, thanks everyone.   Cheesy

Hey everyone!  I'm a Grandma!  The lil' stinker decided he just couldn't wait to get here so he came 3 weeks early.  He's 5lbs 11oz, 17" long and was born Sat. Sept 20, at 1:42pm.  His name is Jonaz Darr which means, "Capable and active loved one"  I am such a happy camper.  Now, we'll see how good I did on the diapers.  Although, I do believe he'll have to wait to grow into them.  They put preemie diapers on him and they looked big.  I will say that some friends that live around me heard about me making some and went on here to take a look and now want me to make them some.  Hey, I never expected that so that's pretty cool and I could always use the money.  Now I have to make the pattern for larger ones.  A Grandma's work is never done. Cheesy Grin Wink
