Oh, my, yes it IS!<br><br>
How will it close? Will you add aplix or something? Also, is that crochet? Sorry for all the q's but I saw a crochet cover on ebay that looked so darling but I wondered how it would be as a cover as far as pee not going straight thru it. Your needlework looks more tight than that particular one, though. It looks gorgeous! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Wow! That is sooooo striking. Just a *gasp* from me.<br><br>
I also loved the natural wool one, and noticed you have an acrylic one too. How does that work out? Do you use it at night? I have a wool allergy and would *love* a wool like cover!<br><br>

I've been using diaper pins to close it, and not using them on the prefold inside.. (not just laying the fprefold inside, sort of wrapping it up inside the soaker, then pinning the soaker..wraap.. whatever.. ), but i bought some sew on snaps.. (big ones, not tiny ones) and i'm gonna try those and see if i like them or how they work..<br><br>
By the way.. It works as well as it looks.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

I have a crochet soaker made by Kendell at Freshies! It is a little more open than the one Dyan made. It always worked great for me. (It is too small now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">) I never had any soak through and used it at night.

Those are all great! I crochet but don't knit--tried it recently and just couldn't get into it. Did you use patterns for them? If so, where did you get your patterns? Also (one more question <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> )<br>
How did the acrylic work out for you?<br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

The acrylic works fine for us, but just like fleece it DEFINATELY needs washed WAY more often than the wool..But since it's acrylic i just throw it in with the other covers.. (not the diapers though PILL CITY then!!! :LOL ) For the pull on soakers i used the <a href="http://webhome.idirect.com/~born2luv/pattern.html#nise's" target="_blank">Nise Soaker pattern from down under diaper covers</a> as a jump off point. .It took more than a bit of tweaking to get soaker i was happy with.. So now i know my pattern, but i haven't written it down.. For wrap soaker.. (that is modeled so beautifully by my lovely bitty -or not so bitty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> -boy ) i just looked at my other wraps and sorta winged it from there.. I'd seen other wrap crochet soakers so i knew it could be done..<br><br>
Geez.. I wrote a book huh..:LOL..<br><br>
