I am loving making cloth diapers

I guess if some people, I won't name any names (Scoot), can have a weird Twilight obsession, then I am entitled to my cloth diaper sewing obsession.

So I picked up a pack of cheapo Gerber prefolds from Walmart the other day. They totally suck as diapers, because they are filled with poly batting. I really, really, really wanted to try my hand at converting prefold diapers into fitted diapers.

I found several tutorials online and thought it was super cool. Here are some of the tutorials I found: (This is the one I used) (This one has useful info too) (The pimped version that I will try next)

For practice I followed the tutorial exactly. Here is the finished product. I made 6 of these and gave them to the girls to use on their baby dolls and stuffed animals. I also sent some to daycare with them to spread awareness of cloth diapers to the other families. I did add velcro closures because I didn't want to give a bunch of 3-5 year old children cloth diapers with pins in them.

The girls love their new cloth diapers so they can diaper their "babies" too! I was on such a roll that I decided to whip up some doll slings for them too!

Proud baby wearers!
