Quoting The Biscuit Farmer.:" There is no point in me posting this, but it's aggravating me. We've come to a complete stand still when ... [snip!] ... I expected to. And then, that'll start a chain reaction of using disposables, and there goes the whole damn point of CDing!"


You can do it cheaply...



See if you can invest in some prefolds for the newb (even pre-loved are great) they're very cost effective and then move onto the Sunbaby/Papoose pockets.



I just bought 10 last night for $38 shipped.



Although I waited until DS was 6 weeks before I started using cloth, but we'll be using cloth from the beginnig this time around.

I'd LOVE and really appreciate if you guys could stop by and "like" my facebook page! These are some of the examples of diapers I've made. :)

Hell, I looked up those cloth diaper lending things. Applied for one, and I actually found another one in Greensboro, which is only 1 1/2 hours from me. Maybe they'd ship to me if I paid it. But I go to Greensboro on a pretty regular basis for the waterpark, so I could pick it up. AND they need volunteers, which I'd love to do regardless if I'm accepted as a lendee or not.



But FML, Justin had a meeting at work today. I guess I jinxed us when I posted about not being able to buy diapers. No clue, but apparently there's a damn good chance the plant he's working out will be shutting down within the year. JUST as he's about to be hired on as a full time, permanent employee, the plant of like 10 years is going to shut down.



I have some t-shirts and there's a community thing here where I can get some more for free, but I just need to print off a darn, good, cloth diaper pattern. >.< Ink is so expensive, man.

Oh, and I bought some fabric from a lady a while ago, and they aren't on the cardboard flats, so I'm having trouble figuring out exactly what type of fabric these are. They feel too stiff/rough to be cotton. Would any type of fabric work for making cloth diapers? Or if it's not a "good" fabric to use, could I pop another layer of something in the middle to make it work? I also have one bit of flannel, but it has the white mesh like backing attached to it. Would that work for a diaper...? I'm so confused lol

Pin a disposable to a big sheet of construction paper. Trace it and use that as your base, tweak it to however it'll work best for you.
Use whatever you have around the house, baby blankets/receiving blankets, old soft towels, shirts/sheets that don't get much use.

Yeah, I can do that. How much of a seam allowance should I add? I actually have a half opened bag of newb disposables sitting around somewhere, so that gives me THAT size to work with... I'll BS it, but I'm just worried about making a bunch and then them not fitting the baby period. :?

Either 1/4" or 3/8". You don't want anything as big as the standard 5/8" clothing seam allowance as it will add a ton of bulk and make it difficult to lay flat after you've turned it.
