I've decided to make the switch to cloth diapers. I feel that this change has been long coming. And I'm surprised that I'm just getting around to it. After lots of research online, (I don't have anyone local to guide me) I think I'd like to try a pocket. Made of PUL and cotton flannel. With a waffle-weave microfiber soaker. Does anyone with some experience have any tips or guidance? I'd like to try and make it on my own. The pattern is not an issue, but I'd love to hear some feed back on favorite materials. Or even great combos other that the PUL/flannel?


  1. Cloth diapers are great! I have been using them for 18 months now. I have never made my own...I guess I should try that before potty training huh? Hope it works out for you and post some pics when you are done!

  2. With your knitting skills have you considered wool covers? They are said to be the best for keeping moisture away from the skin. Would a wool soaker work? We use prefolds, I found them to be the most economical, and easy to make if I need more!
