So my puppy got into the diapers I was sunning one day and chewed up two of them Luckily DD is using less diapers per day, but rather than throw them away, I'd like to reuse some of the material. I have some rudimentary sewing skills - what could I make with these? Most oof the PUL is fine - the snapping sides are chewed on one and the fleece has a big hole in it on the other...

So you want to re-use the PUL? How about mama pads? Use the pul for the under layer to protect your underwear, and you can even use the intact fleece to make a wicking layer for the top of some of them as well.

maybe not the most practical idea, but if I were you, I'd try to re-sew them into small dolly diapers. Your daughter will be putting them on stuffed animals and dolls before you know it! If the snaps got messed up, you can use self-adhesive velcro.

ohhhh!!! good ideas! i'll have to see exactly how much PUL is left (I've noticed a few tooth-holes in the intact parts). That will help me determine which of these things I can make.

I was going to say to mama cloth as well, or use the PUL in some homemade nursing pads.

i'd say mama cloth--i make my own dipes but i use the scraps of PUL from between them to make mama cloth and nursing pads, and you could easily get several of either from the size of a diaper.
Just FYI, i like nursing pads with 1ml, but the ones i tried to make with 2ml were super stiff and gave me serious target boobs

i think the doll diaper idea is cute too--and especially useful if there's a hole in the middle of the piece which would render it fairly useless for the other ideas...
