Newborn Diaper Questions & ISO Dyeing Tutorial

Ok so first I am looking for a specific tutorial that I saw before on Dying Fabric with Shaving Cream. hmmm Its to make those designs like the cloth pads that use OBV and blankets. I really want to dye some OBV for My Daughter and I just love the way that tutorial did it.

Second: I am looking to make some newborn diapers for my newest neice/nephew due in August.

How many Newborn diapers can I get out of 1 diaper cut including PUL?
How many layers of fabric do I need for a soaker? & what material is recommended?
I plan on making AIOs and wondered if there is a pattern out there close to the LiL Joeys diaper and if there is a newborn pattern with a umbilical cut out since I plan on making dipes with Hook n Loop for these First time parents.

Any other advice would be great TIA

Re: Newborn Diaper Questions & ISO Dyeing Tutorial

I made side snapping pockets for my children I got 6 diapers per yard of PUL. But I only made s/m/ls not newborn. Maybe you could get 8?

I've made fattycakes fitted diapers. I used flannel and cotton terry for soarers 4 layers maybe 5?
I'd say 3 layers of hemp fleece or bamboo fleece.

I made my pockets like a diaper I like. I streched and pinned my favorite diaper to a piece of cardboard and traced it. Added quarter inch for seams and started sewing. They fits pretty close and work fine!

I would suggest you prewash everything first some you don't have wield shrinkage.

Hope that helps. I'm sure you'll get more feedback!

Re: Newborn Diaper Questions & ISO Dyeing Tutorial

That looks like a great pattern. I might have to give it a whirl. OP, where will you be getting your fabric from?

Check out FSOT, I almost always find great deals on fabrics there. I've gotten bamboo fabrics for $8 or so a yard.
