*************************************************
All are VB fitteds - size newborn. I think they look more like smalls and if new babe islike DD they &should& fit for a while.

All 6 - woven outer + BKT, sherpa or organic cotton fleece hiden layers/inners/soakers

Close up of inner (BKT) I LOVE BKT, I know it isnt the prettiest but it is sooo soft. I made tons of wipes and love it!

I am working on soem hand-dyed outer (OC fleece) right now. Wovens were a lot easier LOL

Thanks for looking!

Those look absolutely stunning!!!! I looked at the first picture about 20 times trying to decide which my favorite was, but I really couldn't pick just one!!!

Super job!

OK - I am new to CDing. Could you tell me what is BTK? I am sure it is something obvious.

Thanks...

OMGosh, what gorgeous diapers! I want a baby girl!!!

BTW, does BKT get stiff after a while? I love sherpa but after many washes it is never as soft, and I wonder what happens to BKT.

I love the hand-dyed outers!!! Those are beautiful, and my diaper-appreciative 12yo dd agrees. Just beautiful, now all you need to add is a baby!

Sorry just saw this. I have not had BKT get stiff like sherpa does, and havent heard that it does. BTW, my organic sherpa from near sea naturals has not gotten stiff.
