I picked up this PUL really cheap..Wow is it bright. I bought 3 yards so I guess I'll be looking at it a looong time. I think I need to put "Caution" on the bum part to complete the look!

I used the Diaper Cover Deluxe pattern. This was my first attempt, and it came out OK. The gussets were a little tricky, hopefully I'll get better with practice.

I used 1 mil PUL swimsuit elastic for the gussets and 1 inch FOE for the rest.

Has anyone else used this pattern? It's from the same person who makes poopockets patterns

I can't believe I got the same PUL and made the same diaper cover. Only difference was I used FOE for the gussets as well. Looks remarkably similar! I also didn't realise how bright it would be, but I only got a single diaper cut....

Hah- that's funny! I somehow skipped a few steps with the first one..I made another last night and use FOE for the gussets as well. It is very very bright..but at least they won't get lost!!

I love that pattern, but I think I use the side snap one in the package more than the wrap...although the ex and his mom seem to prefer velcro....

I have two Fuzzi Bunz in that orange (also a lime green and a hot pink) and they are my FAVORITES!!!! I the bright colors!! Mostly because then they're more noticeable and I like to show off my cloth!!

Also, when I ordered some PUL (way back when, but have yet to use it) I ordered some orange, lime and black. Now that I'm finally venturing into sewing my own darn dipes I can't wait to use it!
