There was a huge thread about it, which is where I first heard of "family cloth." We do it now (though it's just me and my husband). DH was definitely a skeptic at first, but once he tried it he loved it.
I made my own wipes out of flannel. I cut them maybe 2x4. At first, I didn't sew the edges, but they frayed quickly and I had to start over. For my second batch (which we're using now), I took two flannel pieces and just sewed the edges together.
We have a wipe warmer on the counter next to the toilet, and we use a small trash can with a step lid and a pillowcase liner. That way, it is out of sight and I can just throw the whole pillowcase in the washer and not have to look/touch anything. Just a personal preference.
In the warmer, I keep a stack of wipes and a solution I made for them (baby oil, baby soap with lavender, water). I also have some "dry" wipes nearby for tissues, etc.
It's been a great change for us. It reduces our impact on the environment, saves money, and is way more comfortable. :)
