Anyone ever done this? I can't imagine it would be very hard... Cut a bit and sew in some elastic. Or are there cheap, cloth, pull-up type training pants out there? I think DD would do a lot better if we didn't have to undiaper-and-rediaper every time we put her on the potty!

I haven't done it, but the idea has been turning around in my mind for several months, and we came up with the same way to do it. I bet it would work!<br><br>
I also think about doing <a href="http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=360788" target="_blank">this</a> and then sewing up the sides and adding elastic.<br><br>
If you end up making some training pants from prefolds, please share pics! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Perfect! That's basically what I was looking for - doing the leg casing and elastic. I bet you could just zip another chunk of elastic around the waistband and call it a day... hmmm...<br><br>
Off to experiment! I'll take pics. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

you could also buy some smaller undies (like 2T) wash them on hot to shrink them, and then just sew in a layer or two of pf material for a soaker.<br><br>
they do sell pretty inexpensive cloth trainers at JC Penney, Wee Essentials i think they're called. they're nice and very reasonably priced. Gerber makes some that are quite cheap, though i don't buy Gerber because of the Nestle boycott. but thought i'd mention it in case that's not an issue for you. and i know that the EC Store and the Continuum Family Store both sell reasonably priced undie-style trainers (and of course expensive fancy ones too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )

Has anyone tried this? I'm still waiting for some prefolds to come in the mail. I'm not really sure I understand how to make the leg casing but I hope I can figure it out once I have something to work with.
