DIY Handmade Cloth Diapers

I recently had a baby girl named Azalea Luz. She is now 3 1/2 months old. While I was pregnant with her I ran across these new fitted cloth diapers. I remember playing with my baby doll as a child and putting my old cloth diapers on her...folding them just right and trying to pin them so they stay on tight. I can't imagine having to do this on a squirming baby! I immediately fell in love with them but on one of the online shops they actually sell them for over $50 EACH! I almost choked!

After some more research I found this tutorial for making your own fitted cloth diapers.  Click HERE to view this tutorial.

I really like this tutorial because you can incorporate recycled fabric to save money but you can also customize the fabric on the outside using any color or print your heart desires!

However, if you don't know how to sew, or don't have the time, you can purchase some really cute, inexpensive, and practical ones on Etsy.
Here are a few of my favorite designs:

Re-usable Diaper - No Diaper Cover Needed!

Fitted Diapers (no image available at this time)

Diaper Covers

All three of these Etsy Shops are really reasonably priced with a variety of sizes and prints.  I <3 these!
