Those are awesome!!  Snazzy pants!  I plan to use cloth diapers and I've done lots of research on the diapers but not on the trainers - I'd be interested in a tut as well!

 Grin Cool!  Yay!  I'm glad you guys like them!  Smiley  Will add a tute sometime over the next week or so, lol, as I work out how to make one up.   Grin

 Shocked Those rock on so many, many levels!

I have never seen anything like this! 

We are potty training, but our dipes still fit.  I have some underware made up, but DD is going through a "I'm not pooping... grunt..." phase (grrr she's been pooping in the potty for months, what happened?)...  and, well, I hate having to deal with poop and underware. 

Anyway, this is PERFECT!  I'm about to google like a mad woman, and I can't wait for the tute  Grin  (I think I have it figured out- basically like a cloth diaper with big lycra wings and snaps?)

and the flames... love me some flames

**ok, I googled. Nothing.  Did you deconstruct a pull-up? These are pretty revolutionary when it comes to trainers  Smiley  You should seriously consider selling the pattern.

Your tute is spot on. Thanks so much for making the time and effort to post it!  Cheesy

Okay, so I made one of these... and I'm looking at the leg openings where the PUL meets the inner layer... I have a really bonehead question. Should I bind the legs with PUL? It looks like the legs will wick because the inner is kinda rolling toward the outside. Can I topstitch through the PUL so that the inner cotton doesn't roll to the outside?  Huh Thanks!

ETA- I'll answer my own question-- I can, and I will. And you can too, but only if you want to Smiley

I have to ask, how do these work at night time? Does wetness leak thru?  My dd has been potty tried for a long time (longer than I'd like to admit) but still has accidents over night, pretty much every night. 

We've been doing the pull ups at night and I'm afraid that they're part of the problem.  I don't think she can "feel" the wetness enough to realize she needs/should get to the potty.  I just can bring myself to commit to changing the sheets EVERY night if I let her go commando.  It sounds like these might help, as long as they don't soak thru to the sheets, I'd REALLY love to try them!!

I have to tell you, I was at the kids thrift shop in Ithaca NY and she sells used kids clothes & items plus she has hand made goods from moms in the area. Anyways she sells these not exactly the same but same concept at $10 a piece. Thank goodness I know how to sew now b/c DS will be in that stage soon and pull ups were expensive for DD, thank goodness she was quick!
Thanks for the tut!!
