No problem.  I'm glad to help if I can. I hope you do make one.  I don't know what people use today for those that use the disposable diapers.  Maybe just the bag they come in?

I have mine stacked on the shelf of his changing table. But I like the look of the bag, and could hang one on the side, freeing up more shelf space for other baby bits, which are taking over my bedroom!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

If you still have your baby in your bedroom this is really a great and pretty space saver.  Holds loads. Like I wrote.  I put fabric diapers in one (about 3 doz I think, Will hold more if they are disposable) In the other all of his bed sheets, flannel blankets, duvet cover (they are so cute.lol they are so small) wagon sheets and anything I could.lol  It looks nice and tidy and it's ready "to go" without hurting anyones feelings.

I haven't seen a diaper stacker in a very long time. I forgot about them! Brings back memories of washing out my little brothers and sisters cloth diapers and folding them later to put back in the diaper stacker.

Actually, I hadn't seen one since I acquired one for my first child.  That is what gave me the idea that this was a perfect solution to zero storage.

OOooo Those are the colors I picked!  I just found out that we are expecting (of course I had the colors for the baby's room picked out already!!)  I tried the link that you provided and it is dead.  But thanks for the idea, it is a great one Smiley

First of all aliasgracie, congratulations. Best news in the world. You're right. I don't know where the site went. If you like, I'll look to see if I still have the instructions in my computer. I'm almost positive that I printed out instructions. It's really a pretty easy and fast project and I'm so happy with the results since it holds everything from diapers to blankets to bibs etc.
Just found another site that is just as good. She made an incredible tute.

Hope this helps. A very good idea that I didn't do is to put something reinforcing in the seam between the top (rounded) fabric and the body. I sewed the stacker with an overlock and there is a lot of stress on that seam from the weight. A nice rick rack would be nice (or lace etc.)

Thank you, thank you!!  So far I adore being pregnant!  I can't wait to make the this diaper holder... and my SIL and Cousin are having babies too.  We are all 3 months apart Smiley  I might have to make 3!

I drew up a pattern and made one of these just from memory of the one my mom had when I had my first son.

The only problem I had was finding something to reinforce the bottom of it- I tried using cardboard but it ended up buckling in the middle from the pressure of all the weight, so the bottom was always sagging, and I was always adding in a new piece of cardboard.

aliasgracie, I hope you continue to enjoy your pregnancy. I loved all three of mine. The only time I could eat.lol. I hope you post pics of the stackers you make.
CynthiaButterfly. I made a sort of mini pillow case thing to hold my carton and used 2 pieces of carton. Putting one one way and the other the other way. (If that makes sense.) Think: the stripes going one way and put the other carton in the other direction. I found that doing it that way gave the bottom more strength.
