1. Elastic not sewn all the way through the diaper layers.... (like only sewn to the hidden and outer layer, not inner) I'm not sure if its just me, but the few diapers I have like this always seem to curl up in a ball and then dont lay right when i try to flatten them out when i take them out of the dryer.
2. No front elastic .... that may change depending on the shape of the next baby, but they fit horribly on kyla.
3. Hidden Snaps on side snap diapers :LOL Most(obviously not all as I havent seen them ALL) diapers I have seen with hidden snaps on side snap diapers have wings that are far too big to make room for serging around the snap placement. They end up being too bulky at the hips/upper thighs and the inner fabric being loose really irks me. Not to mention my old washing machine (glad I have a front loader now
) was a bear on diapers... i had more than one snap pop off and the cap was stuck inside the diaper because it was hidden. took more effort than it was worth to get it out and repair.
4. Loose threads... this is partly my own fault, ROFL. I was always neglectful in snipping the threads on the diapers i make for kyla cause im usually in a hurry to try it on, test fit, etc... Then she would pee in it and I would wash it and kick myself for not snipping the threads when i realized i forgot to :LOL Course I have also gotten diapers in the past where there were like 4 or 5 loose threads that the WAHM forgot/neglected to cut. I understand it happens, but it did irk me :LOL
