I just completed making nine of the softest cloth gauze diapers with fabric from verybaby.com. It took about 54 yards since you need to layer the fabric. Just cut it into 7 or 8 foot lengths and sew the ends together with a sewing machine or serger to keep them from fraying in the wash. You need three of these to make one diaper. Fold one lengthwise and place it in the middle between the other two. That will give you four layers on the sides and eight in the middle. You can use more or less but that worked for me. Gauze has more stretch than birdseye or flannel. Use either two or four diaper pins. Snappies will help keep the waist snug. They are easy to wash and they dry quickly. Prefolds take forever to dry but since these are only two layers they dry in a minimum of time. Wash before using and do not use bleach or fabric softener. They will shrink and fluff up during first wash and dry. I enjoyed making them and even enjoy folding them.
