I thought I saw a post somewhere about using t-shirts etc to make diapers but I cannot find it. Has anyone tried this? Making diapers out of things they have laying around the house? I am SOOO broke but really want to give CD'ing a shot so was hoping I could whip something up with what I have on hand. I have bits of material here and there, a functional sewing machine (not surger), lots of old sheets and about 6 garbage bags full of clothes that don't fit me (I was hoping to get into them "eventually" since i outgrew them 6 years ago... lol)

Hi<br>
I think this may be the one you are thinking of:<br><br><a href="http://fernandfaerie.com/sewing_prefolds.html" target="_blank">http://fernandfaerie.com/sewing_prefolds.html</a><br><br><br>
Also, if you look through this entire pattern - especially under the soaker info - you can find out about different materials you may have at home that you can use.<br><br><a href="http://www.geocities.com/rew4birth/Diapers.html" target="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/rew4birth/Diapers.html</a><br><br>
Finally, this one is also helpful for info on making fitteds with stuff from around the house.<br><br><a href="http://mayna.livejournal.com/198548.html" target="_blank">http://mayna.livejournal.com/198548.html</a><br><br>

You don't need a surger (thought it does make it look much prettier!) and that Mayna live journal really helped me when I first started sewing diapers (before a friend taught me what she knew) don't forget to get some plastic diaper covers at Wal Mart or somewhere so you don't have leaks if you aren't using PUL fabric. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Good Luck!

Those links are awesome, thanks so much! I would feel bad if I went out and bought material and messed it up (I'm still learning to sew straight <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) but since I can use the things that I have here, and was just about to send to Goodwill anyways, its no big deal. Love that I can use t shirt material for some things too, as my mom is in the military and for some reason gets hundreds of "go army" variation shirts.
