Re: Cheap fitted diapers??

Okay, ladies, here are the pics finally.

Total cost to make: $2.00 (what I paid for the two flats when I originally bought them several months ago). The elastic and thread I already had in my sewing basket, so didn't need to purchase them.

Two layer fitted made from two old flats. I turned and topstitched instead of serging because I figured it would probably hold better over the long run with the loosely woven birdseye.

The original RRP had a pocket opening in the back that I didn't like. I wanted to padfold my flat and use it to lay in the fitted instead of having to stuff it, so when I made the fitted, I just closed off the pocket opening and put in elastic along the back to help keep the poo off my wool.

With a padfolded flat laid inside, ready for LO's bottom. The flat is a small GMD.

Here it is after being snappied on.

Pretty trim (I think). We've been using these under wool for nearly two months and have still not needed a doubler even once. I've used them successfully during the day, at nap time, and at night. It lasts my 13-month average wetter 12 hours at night and has still not even been completely wet at the end of the night.

I LOVE that I decided to put the elastic along the back. It has helped contain poo so many times.

Oh, and for what it's worth, it was extremely easy to make. This was my first fitted diaper that I've ever made and after the first two, I was able to make one in about 45 minutes from start to finish. (Disclaimer: I like to sew but haven't done it regularly for a couple years.) I'm hoping to get a chance some time this week to make some more to bulk up my stash since I love them so much. HTH!
