I have been using cloth during the day (for the first time) while my son potty trains. I haven't made him anything yet because we seem close to underwear...most days. We had a huge stash of overnight disposables so I told me husband we could use those up. He informed me last night that we have 3 left so I need to make up some overnight cloth diapers FAST (or buy more overnights). I ordered some MM fleece, procare, and such, but it is not in yet. I would like to use what I have, but I need some help. I am a very experienced seamstress, but I need help with absorbencies. I have tons of fabric (flannel, terry, denim, poly knit, some Hancock's fleece, and some old DSQ prefolds "burps"). What would you suggest I use and how much? I have a serger, but I was not happy with how one of the diapers I made washed up...layers frayed despite serging (I am practicing on newborn dipes for a friend...or me when I get pregnant). I think I will turn it, and I have snaps and Velcro for closures. He doesn't usually poo in the diapers at night, but he pees a LOT. He is just shy of 29 pounds, but he is wearing a 3T for length (tall and skinny for 28 months) if that helps at all. I will probably adjust one of the online patterns for his height.
I appreciate any help you can give! Please save me from buying another pack of diapers and from making another expensive trip to the fabric store (although every trip is an expensive trip)!
