I cut the pattern pieces the same sizes.

With outer fleece on top, pin the outer fleece inward between elastic marks only.

Sew along outer fleece with your normal seam allowance.

Tack elastic to elastic markings, and trim excess inner fleece or flannel.

Now you can turn.
I am a big pinner. I pin around elastic to make my casings. That way I *know* I won't sew through the elastic.

Then... you're ready to topstitch....And the dipe is finished!

What a cute embroidery! Great pictoral - you should put it up on a site like picturetrail so it can be slideshow! Wonderful job, I love your tabs too - what pattern are you using - the tabs look like HoneyBoys but I've never used the pattern so I wouldn't know. What fabrics are you using? Cute, cute, cute!

That is the cutest dipe I've ever seen! And your pix make it look soooo easy! I do have one question though. I love pocket dipes and I want to use them with dc#2. Do the ones with the fleece outers actually stay dry on the outside? Do you need to treat the fleece with something to make it water repellant on the inside or something? I'm just mystified about how that works since fleece on the inside wicks the pee right through.

Plady,

You have to use different kinds of fleece. I use Malden Mills on the outside (the good stuff, like Windpro) and a cheap JoAnn's on the inside. The MM fleece is waterproof, the JoAnn's is not, so it wicks.


HTH!

Yep... the Honeyboy home pattern and a regular sewing machine. (Except the embroidery, of course!)

Great Pictorial. May I ask how you backed the embroidery?

The embroidery is backed with another piece of fleece just sewn on top of the design only. I hand stitched it on to make sure you wouldn't be able to see the stitching.

Thats great. I'll study it a few times. Do you do the same thing with PUL?

Also, did the elastic get sewn to the outer layer? and when did you actually stitch the elastic to the diaper and not just tac it?

Do you do the same thing with PUL? Yup.

Also, did the elastic get sewn to the outer layer? Yes... it's tacked to the outer layer.

and when did you actually stitch the elastic to the diaper and not just tac it? I didn't... I only tack the ends down. But I do it so I know it won't come off. Zig zag stitch back and forth. It's tacked to the seam allowance only, but on the side of the PUL or MM fleece.

I have NO clue how you get away with just tacking it LOL. I'm so lost with this making an AIO, they ALL wick every different way I've made them,I've washed and dried in HOT, nothing works. The first 2 i made worked after the first time i washed them and thats it. The pinning the outer layer in a bit at the legs works great for teh rolling though! Now if only I could figure out how to make them waterproof.

I put the link to this thread in our Craft Tutorial How To subforum of crafts.
If the OP would like to donate their images to MDC to host them, that would be great and we could put those up in the Tutorial section, with credit given to the OP (of course) Also, I sent the link to Moonbucket to be added to the Pattern Resources sticky!

What is the advantage of just tacking down the elastic as opposed to sewing it completely to the diaper?

If I tacked only, I would be too scared of it coming loose on one end or something while dc was wearing it, hehe!

Alisa - elastic in a casing like this, rather than sewn down, doesn't catch poo like sewn elastic does, for a start!

If you look at a piece of fabric with elastic sewn on by zigzag, the furrows of the stitching are really deep, and don't wash too well (I've found). If everything moves freely it should wash better.

And it might be more comfortable?

Thank you so much, OP - I was jus trying to visualise how to do this yesterday, both the casing and the roll. Now I can make a bamboo HH knock off with a rise to suit my baby!

man i really hate it when you just have a DUH moment. i am having ahorrible time with ds's diapers wicking out. i am not sure if it cause my inner is wicking OUT or I am asking to much of my diaper (to much padding and expect it ALL to be wet before it starts leaking...) or if i am just going to be a failure. well i am in the middle of my dipe right now and am going to make the changes that i can and see how it works.....

make a case for the elastic and not sew it down...doh!!
extra pull around the legs that go inside the dipe and not just match up the sides....doh!!
:
thanks!!
