I have an idea..But would like to hear from others before I put it to work.  This is for a cloth diaper... Idea is...part touching babys bum normal....fleece or whatever and then soaker and then PUL and then the cute patterned flannel or whatever you choose. So you think that would work? To have the water proof part behind the mess and then a top? I hope this makes a lil since. This is my first time posting and I really just started sewing so please forgive my ignorance to sewing. Thanks

I think theoretically it would work, as that's how I made my fem-pads, pretty much. Not having had children, that's about all I can contribute Tongue

There are a lot of diapers made like that, the only issue is that some have wicking problems, mostly around the legs.  it depends on your pattern though weather or not this will be an issue.

Flannel usually wicks.  I'd try something thinner and less absorbant for an outer layer.  I usually make my diapers with the hidden PUL layer and top with a designer cotton print and it works fine.  Your pattern and how it fits on baby will determine if it wicks.

I've made cloth diapers for the last 3 years, and I can tell you the outter should be PUL, with minimal sewing into it to prevent wicking.  Then next to that layer a layer of fleece or microfleece.  Then add inserts that are absorbent such as velour, cotton fleece, bamboo fleece, terry cloth.  etc.
