How many med. diaper cuts can you get per yard of PUL?

I have a friend whose a seamstress and I can sort of sew. It seems my funds are just not going to get me enough ready made dipes, even on fsot, so we were putting our heads together to come up with a pattern to just make my dd some. But I'm not sure how much fabric to get. So, I need some help from you more experienced ladies in that dept. How many cuts of PUL can I get out of 1 yard?

depends on the pattern. I can get 4 from 22-24 inches of 60 inch wide fabric. If you really are looking for a deal green acre designs sells PUL by the inch and it worked out to a great deal for me. If the fabric is 45 inches wide i can only get 4 diapers per yard.

If it helps, I make one size diapers and can usually get 4 diaper cuts from a meter (which is about the same as a yard)

We're winging it on the pattern, dd is an odd size anyway...but as for pockets-swaddlebees fit her the best, so I'm going to go with something similar. I figured about 4-so I should get two yards for 8 or so.

I saw that on GAD...I'm totally going with them for the fleece and the PUL.

Thanks guys!

If you alternate the pattern right side up and then do the next pattern upside down, you can get more. I usually get about 5- 6 cuts per yard! Its a tricky pattern thingy!
