Making a diaper seems daunting to a beginner sewer, but it really isn't! Especially if you have a pattern and clear instructions. Yes, fit is very important, very! After all, even a handmade diaper needs to contain the messiest of "poop explosions" as we call them in our house. You can do it! I did. Yes, I sew a lot of things for my kids but I do not consider myself a "sewer" and I don't think I'm very good at it. I sew quick, I sew dirty and I get the job done. This works for diapers.

The best part? You will absolutely save a bundle by using these cloth diaper patterns and sewing your own.
