These are the nappies I made for my daughter.  I used Polar fleece, waterproof nylon and micro fleece.  They are fastend with buttons and button holes rather than velcro, which I think tend to get tatty and matted full of the bits in the washing machine.  I started at 13 wks pregnant and thought well I only have to do 1 a week, and that will be enough.  I then put it all away until I was 35 wks pg, having only made 2.  Not the smartest move.  I did get them all done before she was born though.  The pattern, and others, is from the nappy network site http://www.thenappynetwork.org.nz/diy.php Thanks for looking.

Looks great!
I'd definitely caution against buttons though - they are a choking hazard for kids under 3. If you don't like velcro, you could used snaps. there are metal snaps that you can attach with a hand held tool , or you could find a diaper making mama near you to attach plastic snaps.

I love cloth diapers. I'm going to be making some soon, for my son, but for now, we just use a waterproof velcro cover I made, and stuff it with prefolds.

Looks fabulous but I second the button warning! No doubt if my daughter had worn this she would've had those in her mouth. We went through a phase where we couldn't ever play in the front yard without her stuffing her li'l chubby cheeks full of acorns, literally! If you are looking to make more diapers, I would consider investing in a KAM snap press or making one yourself and buying the snap die sets (the pieces used to put the snaps one). I have used our snap press for her diapers, making cloths and I know use it daily to put snaps on the cloth menstrual pads I sell. It's well worth it especially when you know you don't have to worry about them ending up in babe's mouth :)
