We're expecting baby #2 in May.  I've decided to try my hand at cloth diapering this one since sposies were so expensive for our first one. 

The orange dipe on your left is a Bumgenius diaper.  I used it to make the pattern for my knock off version on the right.  Mine is quite a bit more bulky since I had to use terry cloth for the soaker.  Crossing my fingers, hoping it works!

What a great knock-off! I hope they work really well for you and your little one. Is that mustache fabric??  Cheesy

Thank you!  I hope they work too.  I'm working on a couple more as we speak. 

And, yes, that is the mustache fabric from Alexander Henry's line.  I didn't fussy cut it because I wasn't really expecting my first draft to work...but, it did.  So, it's just half 'staches.  Sad  Oh well!

I've made my own soakers for my AI2s, but I bet they'd work for AIOs, too.  I buy microfiber towels (sold at Bed Bath and Beyond, or TJMaxx), and cut them to size, stack them 3-4 high, and sew.  In my AI2s, since they touch the skin and microfiber and baby skin in a no-no), I do a top layer with a scrap of t-shirt fabric (you could use fleece, since it wicks), and a bottom layer of flannel.  Then I zig-zag around the edges.  Cheap homemade soakers!
