How does one make a good permanent cloth diaper?
I decided to try out cloth diapers last night and folded one using 1 towel as a prefold, with another towel folded in quarters as the soaker pad, and I placed a fleece liner over that. I then made a throw away pair of plastic pants using a garbage bag.
The result was an awesomely thick diaper that held a ridiculous amount of large wettings (6 or so). The fleece liner did a better job of keeping me dry than the adult diapers I have tried, and was VERY comfortable. I wore it the entire night with absolutely no leaks, which floored me.
I want to make something like the hubpages how to make a cloth diaper thing. (Can't post links?)
Is there anything else I should know? With a sewing machine, how long should this take? And what can I do about plastic pants? I would rather not be stuck using a garbage bag.
