Its not so much difficulty as it is time consuming and embroidery threads and stabilizers are expensive.

LOVE it! ITA

If I had extra money and the inclination, yes I would buy it.

I was not criticizing. I'm sorry if it came off that way to you. I'm relatively new here and it just surprised me to see that so many people would pay so much money for one diaper (and I did acknowlege that it is a beautiful diaper.) Hey, if you have the money and that's what you like to spend it on, there is nothing wrong with that.

It makes me feel better about spending $150 on mama pads!

If people want to spend that much, let 'em...I'm sure the WAHMs appreciate it! In five months, the cost per wear of the diaper will be down to a dollar anyway

Please do not make this thread into an argument. It was not meant to put anyone down. I was just expressing amazement at how much someone was willing to spend on ONE DIAPER even though it's a lovely diaper. The diaper is obviously very well made, and stitched by hand or machine (yes, I know, machine) a lot of care has gone into the work. I'm very happy for Christy, as I said to my husband last night, I hope she was jumping for joy.
I don't think anyone has criticized anyone for paying that figure, so please don't start say they have. That really puts people off from coming here.

That can still make people feel like they are being judged. A LOT of the people in this forum have spent that much, or more, on a single diapering item. There has been some hurtful criticism in the past so it is a touchy subject here.

I think it is definitely worth the money but I wouldn't spend that much personally.

Whatever- you can think that I am the one turning this into an argument if you want, but I am just pointing out that the mama who *did* spend this much on a diaper is probably a member here (which she is) and it is a little rude to criticize her. And yes, people are in fact doing that when they say "why on earth would you ever pay this much for a diaper?" And think about how it must make Chrsity feel to read that so many people don't consider her diapers worth the $$ that *someone* else paid for them. That's fine that you wouldn't pay that much for the diaper (I know that I never have personally)- but sometimes it is best to keep things to yourself. And do not turn this around on me keeping people from coming here- this kind of thread is excactly why lots of moms I know who CD don't come here to post.

Personally, I don't care why anyone would- that is kind of the point of my post even if it may have gotten lost in translation....some people prefer to use prefolds and more power to them, but you would never see that posted. I don't care if your diapers cost $2 each or $200 each- at least you are using cloth diapers, right?

Thanks for the link!

Just wanted to mention that what is not included in the link are that these embroidary machine's are $$$ and so is the software that is usually not included. I have a embroidary machine the DH just got me about 6 weeks ago and by the time he got me everything it was almost $7000 not to mention I could still spend more on hoops, threads, and designs. So the price of the diaper is worth it considering how much the start up expense is.

I wouldn't pay $50K for a Humvee, so I guess I'd better not mention that in case I hurt somebody's feelings. Actually, I wouldn't pay a dollar for a Humvee, and I bet most of us wouldn't! Everyone has different ideas about what's important to them, and it's silly to get your knickers in a twist over it.
Besides, the OP titled the thread "Oh Boy! Would you pay this?" not "What kind of idiot pays this much for a diaper?"
I actually find it interesting to hear the different viewpoints on diaper buying. I tend to window-shop obsessively, then spend a large chunk on a package of diapers, generally new/first quality. I probably wouldn't buy used, and I rarely buy seconds. There are plenty of people that do both, and I enjoy reading about it. I generally steer away from fancy diapers, because I don't see the point when my son wears pants 90% of the time. There's no way I'd pay more than about twenty bucks for a single diaper, unless it actually jumps in the diaper pail by itself. In fact, I'm gobsmacked that someone WOULD pay that much for a single diaper. That certainly doesn't mean I look down on the purchaser - we just have different priorities.

I have to yeah this, but I was lucky and got a used one and 0% financing and gee I did spend that much...

There's a difference between saying "I wouldn't pay $50,000 for a Humvee" on a diaper message board and saying "I'm amazed at how much someone was willing to spend on a CAR!" on a message board for automobile enthusiasts many of whom have spent $50,000 or $100,000 on a fine car.
