    Default cloth diapers

    I need an easy free cloth diaper pattern. We've been using regular birdseye cloth diapers but I would like to make some cute ones that absorb a little better but have a very limited budget to work with....any ideas???

    I applaud you for using cloth diapers. Just an idea of reusing materials for diapers. You can reuse a bed pad or sweatshirts which you find at thrift stores to make diapers.
    Definitely let us know how they turn out.
    Blessed and Highly Favored!!!!

    check diaperjungle.com and diaperhyena.com they've got some great resources.

    I've used up all our old ratty fleece jackets, blankets, wool sweaters (you can get some awesome ones from thrift stores for pennies), old wool blankets

    OOOOH! Dont use "an old wool blanket"! How scratchy. You can get some good soft sweaters pretty cheap. I found a matress pad at a thrift store that I made some pockets out of. It worked great. I could only use the outside rim of it because the top and bottom was topped with cotton and the rim was topped with poly. But it came out to be quite a bit of PUL yardage with just that. Some people use flease to make covers but I've not been impressed with the wickability of it. And it is to thick. I have a friend that makes pockets with flease on the outside. She loves them. Good luck
