After not sewing a single thing in 7 years

today I made my first cloth diaper!! I made a bunch of silly mistakes, but I feel good about it because it turned out okay, and I know better for my next one. I made it from a premium prefold I'd been using as a burp cloth. I want to make a couple more (I have another dozen or so just gathering dust) and then try covers. I didn't really use a pattern, just kind of winged it, but I think it came out pretty okay!

looks great! How's you use a prefold? Like is the prefold and the cute fabric sewn right sides together and then turned? Or did you put more into it?

Great job! I'm impressed with the snaps too! My first diaper had Velcro but i just got some snap pliers from a mama on here & I can't wait for them to arrive!
