Cloth Diapering

A friend of mine surprised me by mentioning she's been using cloth diapers and loving it, and I think I was in need of a challenge, so I have decided to attempt them, and of course I have to sew them myself :) Go figure, right! So here we go, I'll let you know how it goes. I plan to make a fitted diaper that is waterproof and will have inserts, still deciding whether to do velcro or snaps. I've ordered this cute flannel for the outside, white PUL off for the waterproof layer then a cloth diaper fabric for the inside. The insert will be microfiber. I'm going to make some with a denim-look fabric for Ryan that our new little girl can use later too. I like the idea of the bum genious diapers...
Next, I found a couple tutorials, so once the fabric arrives, a sewing I will go and then the adventure begins. I don't know that I'll use cloth wipes, but I'll give them a try. Also, super excited to try and make a cute wet bag for travel and we'll go from there :)
