TUTORIAL TUESDAY ~ Cloth Diaper Pattern

I learned about cloth diapers when I was pregnant with Abigail from my cousin Lisa. She said that they are very easy to sew and that intrigued me because I like to sew. I started researching them on the Internet (whoa, there is a lot of info!), bought several patterns, and made my newborn stash. When it was time to size up to small cloth diapers, I decided to try and draft my own pattern. It worked really well so I decided to write a tutorial so that other cloth diapering mamas could do the same. That was over 3 years ago and it's had over 130,000 views since then. =) Over the course of the next few days, I'm going to copy it over to my blog and put a link in my sidebar so it is easy to find.

God Bless,

Hi Erin, I just LOVE your website! I am a mom of 3. I have two girls ages 6 and 3 and now a son that is 4 months old. I am trying to do the whole cloth diaper thing with him. I have really no clue what I'm doing. My aunt said that she will try to make me some diaper covers. But what kind of material do you use? I have some prefolds and diaper pins. I'm a stay at home mom so I've been using them without a cover. I have searched high and low for some cheaper diapering supplies, but I can't find anything. My three year old has medical problems. She has a colostomy bag from not being able to go poopie. My son is starting to show all the same signs. He can only go poopie with an enema. And I have to call the doctor because he hasn't been peeing. We try to do everything natural like breastfeeding and now the cloth diapers it's just money is tight. Oh yeah back to the subject, lol, so do I need to get some kind of plastic material to sew the cover with? You can email me directly it's patoblisk@yahoo.com I look forward to hearing your great ideas! Patty

Hi Erin

Loved the cloth diaper pattern. Thanks. I have tried some from other websites and it worked well with my kid. I am sure yours will be better.
What fabrics have you used for the inner, outer and soakers?
