My mom and I made cloth diapers for my son after he was born. Hubby and I wanted to do cloth to help save cost, and they turned out great. These are all I've made so far, but I'm getting ready to make 5 more to bump us up from 22-27, because I feel like I'm constantly running out of diapers! They are AI2 One Size Fits All and I got the PUL on Ebay.

What materials did you use? If I had a snap press/PUL, I would SO be making some dipes! We CD, but most of the ones from our first son are really worn out, so we need more:P We'll be getting prefolds (hopefully before the next little man arrives) and some dappi covers to start us off with, but I really want some OS for when he's older.

Are they all in one, or do you have to put a cloth diaper inside? (sorry, don't know much about cloth diapers).  Did you use a specific pattern?  I would love to make some for a friend who is taking on cloth diapering

I love these! What pattern did you use? My friend is having her 3rd baby and always wanted cloth diapers. She never could do it before due to not having their own washer and dryer.

Thanks everyone! I helped my mom make the patter and I think she plans on selling it. I'll talk to her and let you know. They really aren't too bad to put together, I enjoyed making them. The outer fabric is PUL, I got mine on Ebay from seller skris1981 she has solids and prints and usually a really good selection. My snaps and tabs and hook/loop I buy at http://www.nappyshoppe.com she's a wahm and sells from Plano Texas. She is GREAT very fast delivery and great supplies, she has PUL as well but only in solid colors. Though she has TONS of cloth supplies as well as mommy supplies if you use them.

I don't remember what fabric I used on the inside off the top of my head, but I still have some left on the bolt so I'll look and let you know about that as well. They require inserts and so we made a bunch of microfiber inserts 2 and 3 layers thick.

Glad you all like them. I'm getting ready to make 10 more, 5 for my son and 5 for my nephew. They really work great.

Wow, those look really well made and just like ones you buy in the shops! I'd definitely be keen to purchase the pattern off you if/when you start selling it Smiley I'm due for baby number 3 in April and would love to cloth diaper this time to cut back on costs.
