How much fabric is needed to make a diaper

Approximately how much fabric is needed to make a large sized diaper? What would be the dimensions?

Has anyone used light oxford canvas as an outer?

New to sewing ...thanks for your help!

it really depends on the pattern but i find that most diaper cuts that are available are about 18x20 or 22. also what materials you use would depend on the type of fabric you're making. generally for a pocket or an AIO you would want some sort of waterproof outer like PUL or TPU. i'm not familiar with light oxford canvas. does it absorb water when you try to wet it?

maybe google "free diaper patterns" and go from there?

To be safe i would do 20X20, don't use anything that has vinyl in it, pul is easy to come by and is breathable good for baby ja(joann's) it's in the utility section and alot of sales people dont know what your talking about sells it get pastel only tho, hancocks also carries it i've never used none around and i think i've heard hobby lobby carries it alot of places online carry prints and solids, fabric.com has great prices and alot of solid colors for printed you can get diaper cuts on etsy.com just search pul diaper cuts .
