Could you use a paper towel, pull the two layers apart and use one at a time, folded in half? Would that be OK for a septic system?

I'm not sure about paper towels and the septic system.  We use them when we run out of tp in the middle of the night.  LOL  But I don't know how they will do on a regular basis and they can clog the pipes, I've had that happen before.  Check this place out for some that aren't too expensive http://www.clothdiaper.com/sitemap/biosoft-flushable-diaper-liners.htm

Or, Google "Flushable Diaper Liners", that's what I did.  Gotta love Google. Cheesy

Thanks, I thought they were a pretty clever design too.  Glad you liked it.  Hope you can follow the tutorial. 

BTW, if anyone wants the pattern and tutorial in a pdf file just pm me your email and I'll send it right along.  That way you can just print it out and go.

Hey, just wondering how the diapers are working with your grandbaby. Have you made any more?

I'll have to remember this is here when I have my eventual kids... I have to cloth diaper, or I'll feel stupid about being so into my DivaCup but using disposable diapers  Tongue  It would be contradictory.  Excellent tute!  You clearly put so much love and effort into making it AWESOME!

Hi, that was a great idea to use a disposable to model your pattern from. Your tute was easy to read as you guided us through the steps. I wouldn't worry about the zig-zag stitch hurting the baby, it will soften up with frequent washing. The 'gusset'  was the best part. I've made some cloth nappies for my little grandaughter to wear, but as she was a winter baby and they live in a tiny flat disposables were best because there is a limit to just how many indoor clothes frames you can put in a room as well as all the other baby stuff  Smiley. I'm also a great fan of serging the edges - it takes away all that extra work of 'turning rightside out etc.'. Serging also stands up to a lot of washing, I know because the original cloth nappies I made for my first child in 1981 lasted through three babies and beyond (I gave them away when I had no further use for them  Smiley.
Your post has generated heaps of great ideas and made some of us think now of other ways to do things and that's what craftster is all about.
Did you consider leaving an opening in the back for an insert like a 'pocket nappy' ? (at least I think that's what they are called).
Cheers

Well, the diapers did really well.  The PUL was the best to use.  I didn't think about an extra pocket to add an extra soaker pad.  Interesting idea.  My dil didn't use them very much so I refuse to make her anymore.  Yeah, serged edges are just as soft as other cotton thread.  I heard that polyester thread can wick, I'm not sure if that would be a really problem or not.  My opinion is, if that happens change the babies diaper for heaven's sake.  LOL  And I found that turning it right side out was just a pain in the ass, no pun intended.  Anyway, they were diapers.  And if anyone wanted them that way they could do it that way, you know what I mean.  I was just looking for the easiest way to make them since I had to make a bunch.  The problem in this thread was a certain person would be mean in their criticism but for the most part I learned a lot from all the good, kind suggestions and ideas.  So, thanks again everyone.
