It only took me 1 hour and 15 minutes form start to finish WHEWWWW<br>
I made it with a cotton woven outer, diaper flannel inside soaker is 4 layers of microfiber and then a doubler of 6 layers of organic velour and 2 of hemp terry. This should be one absorbant dipe!!<br>
I'm going to use it dtonight! If it holds well I'll make one for my DS tomorrow!<br>
I made one mistake I should have cut it at the crotch so the prints are the right way on the front and back but I'm SOOO happy with it.<br>
I will put snaps on it with i get my press in about a week til then I'll use pins.<br>
I'm jsut so happy for the first time it came out TRIM and gorgeous and exactlyhow I wanted it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Also in the photos is a fitted with jeans outer with a cotton interlock inner soaker is microfiber<br><br>
Also is a wool cover it is lambswool and so soft<br><br>
Then there a dora pocket fitted Cotton interlock inner and cotton woven outer.<br><br>
Anyway the's the pics<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/d156/M2LNB/sewing/?action=view&current=Picture121.jpg&slideshow=true&interval=3" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/d156/M...rue&interval=3</a><br><br><br>

Those are really neat looking! Do you find any disadvantages to using wovens, since they aren't very stretchy? I've been scared to use them, but they usually have the best and most diverse prints!

I really like wovens mainly becuase sewing knit is a PITA<br>
All my little fishy and sunkissed babies are either cotton wovens OR OV outers.

Also i REALLY like using microfiber in the soaker It's cheap and so absorbant It folds in 4th in the soaker area and it is a great daytime fitted then add a good doubler and it is agreat nighttime dipe!

Do you just cut the wovens the same size as the other layers, or do you make it a little bigger in the legs like you would with PUL? That's what you do with PUL on the VB AIO pattern, anyway.

I'm interested in the question of wovens vs. knits as well. And is flannel a woven? I know it's not a knit, but is it totally separate ro is it just a fuzzy woven?

I dont know if it is a cotton woven It probably is since it has no stretch<br>
I didnt cut the outer an bigger since it is a fitted.

Yep, flannel is a woven. If you look at it and there are threads going across and up and down, it is a woven. Knits have that V look if you look closely at the stitches. I love how knits feel to wear, but they are a PITB to sew. Wovens sew up SO much easier! Definitely a trade off.<br><br>
