It's funny, I popped over to Onegirl this morning & she had posted about making cloth nappies for her daughter & I was right in the middle of doing the same!
I am embarrassed to say that I have been planning on doing this for over a year now & yet the pile of nappy making paraphernalia hasn't been touched in a long time.
I still have to nut out just how tight to make the elastic (how to get a headstrong 22 month old to pose for a photo) & how much padding is the right amount, but otherwise all went well with cloth nappy mark 1. The pattern is from Ottobre Design (autumn 3/2005) , but they also have a free nappy pattern on their website. I recycled a bit to make these, the nappies are made from a knit fabric that was an old doona cover & the inserts are made from cloth nappies & flannelette baby wraps. My secret hope is that by putting Lo in cloth nappies during the day, she might end up toilet trained this Summer... I can dream, right!?
