My 1st Minkee quick-dry AIO!!!

I've gotten lots of stuff done, but haven't had time to post it, so I thought I'd post this tonight. I just finished my first minkee aio this afternoon. I used a hidden layer of pul, 2 layers of microfiber, and inner of pink velour and then on the sewn in doubler (is that what it would be called?) I used a layer of flannel on the bottom, a layer of microfiber, and a layer of thin baby microfleece. I have everything cut out & put together to make another one, I just need to sew all the layers together & put on velcro. This pattern is from tracing a bsww cover, and I think I am going to modify the next one a little bit and extend the elastic up a little more on the legs. All in all, not too bad, and I'm happy with it! Boy, was it a mess cutting the microfiber! And I just had a lady come over to clean the house yesterday and between the microfiber, minkee, and velour, my dining room got 2 vacuumings in one day.

I love the diaper! BTW I hate cutting microfiber! For the longest time I couldn't figure out why my fresh laundry made me itch so badly I wanted to tear my clothes off. That microfiber had gotten over everything and it is incredibly itchy.

So, how much would you say a diaper like this costs with the minkee?

I love that pink checked minkee. I am such a minkee addict. Where did you find it?
