Cloth Diaper Making 101

The twin and I decided to try our hand at Cloth Diaper Making. Not too sure what we are thinking...except that we like to craft (I like to I just can't) and like to save money!

Anyway, we bought diaper making supplies like PUL Fabric and a Diaper Pattern:

I volunteered to do the cutting of the fabric since I knew the majority of the sewing would be in the twin's hands. Turns out, I can't even cut along a straight line as some of the fabric pieces didn't even match! Oh my. Luckily, the twin knew what she was doing and managed to sew the two together. Here she is, sewing the tricky Welt Pocket that is the trademark of the KCK One diaper:

Baby C couldn't handle all the sewing, so she took a nap under the twin's guest bed. Yes, under:

When both girls were awake, they sat in on the fun and shared a Trader Joe's Rice Cake. Make that, Baby R shared the rice cake while Baby C tried to snatch it when she wasn't looking!

The twin and I have a long ways to go on the diaper making but we'll just do a little at a time and get there soon enough! Stay tuned for pictures of the finished product!

I so want to try making my own cloth diapers!!! I just haven't bought a pattern or material yet.

you are so ambitious! I hadn't even thought of making my own cloth diapers (don't think I can improve on BumGenius) but am going to sew some wet bags- I need more for the road now that I'm potty training.
