I'm getting down to the wire..lol... I need to get some diapers made for my new little one. Along with nursing cloths.... and other things..lol... Diapers are taking priority.<br><br>
I want to do pocket diapers. Can i modify the pattern I use to make them into pocket diapers? I've made a few different patterns and am finding they take TOOOOO long to dry, and also that they wouldn't clean that well being so heavy,

You can do just about any pattern as a pocket dipe. Just don't sew in any padding and leave an opening to put in the soaker insert. I found that with a fleece lining you could just cut a slit in the fleece for the opening, it doesn't ravel and then you can finish all the edges nicely. I did the slip about 1/2" to an inch below the center back elastic.<br><br>
For the soaker, you can either do an insert, or you can just do a lay-in or snap-in soaker, whichever works best for you.

Robin, the slit is a great idea! I'm just about to make my first pocket dipe myself, and I'd been thinking about how to make the opening without ending up with the elastic somewhere way up ds's back becausse the opening would gape. Just slitting the fleece... why didn't I think of that?
