I wish I would have made some diaper covers when my little ones were in cloth diapers. It looks great!

Sewing diapers can become addicting. This Kwik Sew pattern looks good. Nice work.

I so intended to sew diapers when my DD was born--I bought the stuff and everything but never did. I did cloth diaper her though. Your diaper looks fantastic.

Wow thank you. This would really save money on cloth diapering!

I've started labeling them 1.0, 2.0 with a marker! I've been experimenting with adding snaps in different spots to get the best fit. Also learned NOT to use cotton thread - it wicks! Polyester works great.

I just started researching making diapers. Did you make separate diaper and covers or did you make the one piece (diaper+cover)? From a 'use perspective', what are the pro's/cons of each method? I'm going to be a grammie - it is amazing how many choices are out there and so much has changed in the pst 30 years!

I first started out doing all in ones, but once my son started sleeping on his side at night I got some leaks. I switched to making a fitted diaper and separate cover so there is absorbancy on the sides and that works great! My favorite right now is a fitted made with bamboo fleece and lined with suedecloth or microfleece so it feels dry. If you make an AIO, they take FOREVER to dry. Plus you're spending a lot on all that PUL. With covers, if they just get wet and not poopy, you can hang them on the changing table to dry a couple of times between washes. My mom and husband haven't griped, so it's not hard to use them. Snaps are the way to go for sure though. I've also been serging some instead of turning and topstitching - I like those a lot.
