My brother's girlfriend wants to make me a diaper cover because she found a pattern on sale and said it looked super easy. She's never made one before and I'm clueless as to what all she needs. So far I've looked up stuff online and saw that waterproof fleece is ideal. Does that need a liner also? Or is it ok to use by itself?

If it's waterproof it doesn't need a liner. Covers are pretty simple. Is she binding it in fold over elastic?

I have no idea. What are the other options for elastic? Or is that the way to go?

For covers, you can serge the edges and add elastic, turn and stitch the edges and add elastic or bind with binding and add elastic. If you use fold over elastic, it eliminates the need for elastic since the binding IS elastic. It just depends on what the pattern calls for.

covers can be made of fleece, wool or pul... I have a cut of pul just waiting to be made into a cover, but I've never made one so am a little nervous.. and i don't want to ruin the fabric

I've made a bunch of pockets, but I'm scared to make a cover too! It seems like it would be easier in some ways, but I'm still nervous.
