wahoo pattern ordered

So I went shopping at the diaper shop, and I am so excited I ordered my first diaper pattern. Now what's your favorite diaper material for fitteds? What can I buy locally? I am so excited I cannot wait to start sewing dipes.

Add a personal flare to your dipes and get fabrics you like. I use everything...sherpa, velour, cotton knits, cotton wovens, flannel, etc. I hit the remnants section and buy prints l like for cheap! Our local fabric store is closing, so I've been going about once a week and stocking up...lots of good deals! I bought a pattern and have been tweaking it since diaper one, making changes with each one I do. I just drafted my own pattern, and am excited about making one of those this week! I spend a lot of time sewing each diaper because I'm picky and want 'em all perfect! It's fun, and relaxing. You'll love seeing your babe in dipes you've made...and you'll start second guessing spending big $ for others!

Thanks I am so excited. I cut out my pattern and made copy templates so I could pin that to the fabric and cut. I cut out plenty of soaker, and booster fabric. Now all I need to do is sew them. I am a novice so that is the scary part.
