cloth diapers

We plan to use cloth diapers when the baby comes so I took advantage of the Black Friday sales at JoAnn's and stocked up on flannel and other supplies. We are planning to use fitted diapers with a cover. I made three diapers on Friday as soon as I got home and got the fabric washed. It was a lot of fun and also a great learning experience. The pattern I used ended up being pretty big for a newborn so I am going to need to modify that for the rest of them. Here are a few pictures. I got about 6 or 7 different flannels but here are just the 3 that I started with. They are so cute!!
Lacey helped me pick out the fabric and also waited in line with me to get everything cut. They had huge lines you would not even imagine it was that crazy.
The website I have mainly been using for the diapers is here.

We will probably also purchase some all-in-one diapers to be used with babysitters or long days out and about.


  1. Dude. Were totally planning on using cloth diapers too (someday). Good stuff.

    I never thought of making them ourselves. I'm telling Valeen. She's gonna be stoked!

    They're cute. I like 'em.

    Just wait though ... they won't be so cute after the first deposit is made ...

  2. I think you and Josh might be the most crafty peeps we know! First a bed frame and now diapers! You Rock!! I will admit that I am stoked and I may have to come and learn from you.

  3. Tschamler's you guys will have to come over for a diaper sewing party. Or the boys can smoke some pipes and the girls can sew. Oh this sounds awfully redneck to me!
