I have a sewing machine, and a serger is on my christmas wish list, but I have all this fabric I am dying to use on dipes. I actually bought it from thinking I was going to get to use my mom's serger this summer while I was there for a month, but it was broken. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I just ordered the Honeyboy pattern specifically because you don't need a serger, and because they are my new favorite diaper.

You absolutely don't need a serger. I made almost all my diapers before I bought my serger. I used the HoneyBoy pattern and made both AIO's and fitted diapers. You just turn and topstitch.
