Am I Crazy?

Over the last month or so I have been searching high and low for the perfect cloth diaper for my little fluffy butt baby. I have realized that every diaper has something I don't like about it (to poofy, to hard to snap on a squirmy baby, leaks, etc.), which is why I still have a hodge-podge stash that only lasts me about a day and a half.

I have been thinking about making fleece liners for my prefolds so he doesn't have wet cloth against him between changes - but my husband is not a huge fan of the prefolds. I have to figure something out that both of us will be happy with. So, I have purchased all the materials I need to make my own cloth diapers from various online stores.

I am going to design the pattern myself so it will have all the features I like combined together. This is a pretty ambitious project for me, so we'll see how it goes. I'm not expecting the first diaper to be fabulous or pretty, but I hope it will at least work great! Who knows, I might become a WAHM selling these fluffy butt creations!

Ok. At first I thought to myself that you were indeed much more enthusiastic about this than I but after watching a video, it doesn't look that difficult. Here is the video I watched:

I think I just may try this! Thanks for creating a monster! :)

Thanks for the great link Whitastic! It shows how easily a basic diaper can be sewn. That same pattern can easily be turned into a waterproof pocket diaper by purchasing some PUL off the internet (I got mine from Etsy). There are also a bunch of sites with with tutorials or help message boards. I'm going to work on compiling a resource page with that info.
