Step 2: Getting Started


Buy a pack of cloth diapers and wash and dry them before sewing to pre-shrink.

Then measure the space that you are going to want covered by fabric.  Mine measured about  4" x 17".

If fabric will frey when washed then make sure to cut enough to iron your edges under- a great time saving tip is to cut a peice of cardboard for a template (cereal boxes work great for templates) and straight edge for ironing.  You may want to use a cardboard template too if you are making several to save some time on measuring and cutting your fabric.


Step 3: Finishing Up

When you have measured and cut your fabric- pin the fabric right side up to the cloth diaper. Now it is ready for sewing.
