Thank you for the advice. So far, I have mostly made prefolds. I have made a few fitteds, but I really like the pattern I found for prefolds. I went to one of the resale shops here in town, and they donate all their "unsellable" t-shirts to me to make diapers out of. I have also been able to decorate the plainer ones with iron ons. My husband is a Wile E. Coyote freak, so I have ironed some downloaded pics of the coyote on the backs of some of the diapers. It is very cute, and provides somewhat of a waterproof barrier.
I have some old raincoats the other kids outgrew and won't wear, they are the perfect material for "rubber pants". I just needed to come up with some sort of pattern. (Other than tearing apart a pair of baby bloomers that is).
The few fitted diapers I have made, came out either way too huge, or way too small. I am still trying to find the perfect pattern, and perfect it so they come out the way I want. We have TONS of extra wash cloths, and I am using those for the padding for the fitted diapers. I think they are a bit too stiff, but they should soften with wear and washing. Especially with bleach! The t-shirt prefolds are so much softer and absorbant. I have even made a bunch of sanitary pads and breast pads for myself. They are VERY comfy, and work wonderfully. At first, I thought "yuck!" but I really love them.
