Crunchy Con Mommy crunchyconmom May 18, 2012 at 9:50 pm That is awesome! Thanks for sharing your pattern. Definitely trying this next time I have a baby (we are trying to potty train right now, so no more diapers for my son-hurray!) PS for other people like me who don’t have old sleeping bags laying around, it is still fairly inexpensive to buy waterproof fabric from the fabric store, so it’d be more than $1 but still pretty darn cheap if you repurpose everything else! Destany May 19, 2012 at 12:10 pm I did that when I made diaper covers for my daughter. It was a blast going to the fabric store and picking out materials. Her daddy picked out a pretty swirl patterned fleece. You’re right, it’s still very inexpensive to make homemade dipe covers. I think all of hers needed up cost around 30$, so they paid for themselves onside two weeks. 🙂 Allyson Bossie MyW1ldcrazylife May 19, 2012 at 5:57 am I am so impressed. I had no idea about these things for years, and now my almost 3 year old wears cloth to bed-the only time he needs it. I have four so I wish I had the thousands of dollars I spend on diapers back, sighs 🙂 Destany May 19, 2012 at 12:13 pm I wish I knew about cloth when I had my first two kids as well. I don’t know why it never even occurred to me lol! I know what you mean about wishing you could get your money back, diapers are expensive! June Park JuneParkIntactivistPark May 19, 2012 at 11:40 am This is great and I just shared the info with my cloth friends.:) We had the opposite issue..the cloth diapers, no matter what brand, made 2 of my children’s allergy issues worse even with frequent changes and dietary changes as well. Go figure.;) Destany May 20, 2012 at 1:00 pm Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Who knew kids bottoms could be so temperamental! Andrea talesofgoodness May 23, 2012 at 7:59 pm Oh thank you for this. Very refreshing. We cloth diapered both of our kids, but I never dreamt of actually making them. All things considered, this is the ultimate green diapering! I mean, you actually took advantage of old clothing. We are just about to buy more cloth diapers for our son as he has outgrown our daughter’s entire stash, but I think I may give this a try instead. I am a not a good seamstress, but this just makes too much sense. I even have a closet full of no-longer-used receiving blankets. Wish me luck! Destany May 23, 2012 at 8:33 pm Best of luck, I am glad you found it helpful! 🙂 Feel free to contact me if you have questions! Megan B.B. May 26, 2012 at 12:22 pm Thank you for posting this. I wish that there was some sort of service out there that sewing Mom’s would help out us non-sewing and non-crafy Moms. Like a swap of some sort. (Otherwise, the initial $$ shock of switching over to cloth has my husband a bit wary.) Crunchy Con Mommy crunchyconmom June 4, 2012 at 12:55 pm Megan, there are tons of sellers on Etsy that sell reasonably priced cloth diapers, and if you find one who lives close to you, she may be willing to give you an even better deal-or ask on Facebook, and maybe some of your real life friends have secret sewing skills!
