    OK so I just looked up sewing patterns for making cloth diapers and prefolds and told DH that the next big purchase I make for myself will be a sewing machine because I think I can start making CDs before even getting PG. I told him I wanted to make the 3rd bedroom into a workroom anyway.

    Where did you ladies that make your own CDs find a snap machine and how much did it run you?
    Snap presses I have found are like $80, but cheaper if you get in on a co op, but snap pliers are $20-30. KAMSNAPS is the name of the store.

    Cool thank you!! I'm going to start with prefolds first and then move onto the more complicated ones. I may need testers when I finally get to do it!

    I have pliers from KamSnaps and have converted several aplix diapers to snaps! I like them. The only thing I have had a little trouble on was a BG where the snap cap was inside the diaper (between the PUL and Inner) and the pliers we on the outside.... They didn't mash down "straight" but they still work, just not as pretty as they could be. When the cap is directly in the pliers, they turn out great!

    Same here. My converted BG is the only one that doesn't look great.

    V - is it easier to make diapers with a serger as opposed to sewing them? Or is it about the same?

    I've been wondering the same.

    Started this a year and a half ago. Had a really angry moment over a crooked seam and tossed it in the box. Had a baby 2 weeks later and left it in the box until yesterday.

    Finished project:





    backside:


    It has turned into my swap gift for my DD swap. I am totally in love with it and mildly bummed that I can't keep it.

    I'm going to include diapers and cheap diaper accessories (wipes, ointment, etc.)

    Well, easier depends haha I tried serging some, but with rounded wings and botched it..badly. With practice, its going to be a lot faster. You dont have to sew, then turn, then top stitch..you just serge it. Leave an opening, add elastic, serge it closed. That diaper, has turned legs, and the rest is serged. Not sure if its easy to see in the pic.

    I made this as well. This is something I'll be looking for testers/models for.



    eta: This is Caitlyns. I'll be doing some like a skirtie, but with like knit leggings attached..though like this, its easy to get on over pants. This skirt is SUPER twirly. Its windy, so I cant get a good hanging pic outside..

    Thanks V! I just got licensed to sell from all the sweet mama small sugar patterns and I'm way excited about it. I love all her patterns.

    Danielle it does seem really expensive which is why I learned to knit lol. If you love fitted diapers, I feel certain you'd love wool though!

    Yes, thats why Im learning to knit. I couldnt afford to get him woolies any other way

    thats the tihng i relaly only use pockets and AIO's so msot everything i use is waterproof.. NOt sure what i'll do once I have another baby we go the waterproof route cause becca is a heavy wetter. I more want to do longies and such just cause they are cute lol.. is there a cheaper yarn I could use then that would still be comfortable for her assuming i'm just using them for fashion?

    You can always get acrylic for longies if you don't want them to be waterproof! It doesn't come in all the super pretty colorways that the wool yarn does but it's a ton cheaper.

    But it's a trillion times better when mama makes you something rather than buys you something.

    First diaper I ever made ... with the first snaps I ever applied.



    The snap placement is iffy, but so was the quality of the diaper. I just needed a real diaper on which to practice after I practice on a piece of scrap fabric.

    She's wearing the diaper today.

    Now I'm making a matching one for the big sister.
