Sewing cloth diapers.

527 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Homeschoolmom
I have been using cloth diapers for a while now and just started sewing my own for my son. I did not want to spend anymore money on new ones and decided to use flannel and old t-shirts to make some for him. I got the pattern for free online and most of the fabric is stuff that I already have here at home, I just had to buy elastic, velcro, and thread. I am just making him fitted ones right now.

Does anyone else on here use or sew cloth diapers?? Any tips on sewing them??

yes I've used cloth diapers on all my kids and we're getting ready for #4's arrival. I've made cloth diapers too using the Mama Bird pattern (free online). there are tons of sites online with free patterns and lots of free advice and info. I use the mamabird pattern but basically turn the fitted diaper into a pocket diaper, without the waterproofing, because my kids always need more absorption than I've ever put in the diaper, so having a pocket allows flexability and allows me to stuff it with whatever I might need. I then just use a regular cover with it.
