Sewing Diapers

Since I decided to use cloth diapers, I needed to build up my stash. I really didn't want to spend $200-$300 to do so either. There's no way I could convince Carson this was cheaper when I needed that much money. So I started to make some of my own. I got a great pattern from my sister and one from my mom. I first took an old flannel sheet we had and made a few that still need covers.

They turned out pretty good. Now I just need to make some more covers. (I only have one right now.) Then I ordered some great fabric off line and made my first AIO (all in one). It turned out FABULOUS!
I was supposed to use snaps, but I don't have a snap press. I also didn't want to buy one if I won't be using it for more than just this. So we'll see if I end up getting one or not. However, velcro seems to work just fine.
It fits great, except for maybe a little tight on his waist. I'll have to make a few adjustments.
Don't you just love the butter cream color.

You are amazing! That looks just like a diaper! If I tried sewing one it would probably end up looking like a bikini top or something completely deformed.
