    Of course it's the most obvious makeshift but you need pins to hold it. If you want I can tell you how best to fold it. The width of the towel must be enough to go around your waist at least three quarters.

    If you put it on right it's no different to a actual baby cloth diaper. You do need a plastic pants if your gonna wet.

    Note that the type of material the towel is made of can effect how absorbent the makeshift diaper is. Some material combinations are better than others. Regardless, all makeshift towel diapers will need plastic pants (unless you are going for the 'I peed' like )

    I do this all the time for my plushies with washcloths, I even have pink and blue colored washcloths and pins so that my boy and girl plushies are more cute. For an actual diaper though you just need to fold the sides over each other and pull the corners out.

    The inserts for my all in one (baby) diapers are made from a towel like material, so I'm confident it will work.

    I used terrycloth towels for diapers when I was in high school and college.

    They make an excellent diaper. However, if it is wide enough to go around your waist, it will be very very bulky between the legs. It can be uncomfortable.

    It's hard to pin a towel and get it to fit right. I used elastic strips with clips on the end, designed for holding a sheet on a bed a sheet.

    I used towels for many years before I could afford to buy disposable nappies or was given them by the NHS for my bedwetting. My mum started using old towels on me when I got too big to make the use of cloth baby nappies practical. I had the idea too of holding them in place by using stretchy knickers (e.g. Playtex), which removed the need for pins. This served me well for many years until I started wearing disposables.

    I still have some old towels and stretch knickers which I sometimes wear when I want a change from disposables simply for the pleasure of a cloth nappy and plastic pants.

    Towels work well. I used them for years back in middle and high school before I had any money of my own. As said before You need some form of plastic pants to go over them.
