These are my one size AIO type diapers I made using the Mosaic Moon pattern that I altered so they open up in the front with one snap so they get really clean and dry crazy fast. There are 5 of each except the cherry and Hawaiian print where there are only 4. I ran out of ability to load the snap press for a helper to do the snapping, so the diapers on the left don't have snaps yet. That will have to happen post babies. I also have 10 more cut out that will hopefully get sewn sometime as I love the prints. They match the newborn diapers brown flower and strawberry prints.
Here are the newborn diapers that I made to add to my stash. AIO type and 16 more fitted diapers out of fabric I already had. Not cute, but free! My DH loves them as they look like Halloween diapers with the navy liner fabric and orange and purple snaps.
This is my newborn stash that I made for my third and then used for my fourth and will for the twins as well.
I think I'm as ready as I can be with how this pg has gone. I have a few hrs of sewing to do sometime after the babies are here or at least an hr or two of snapping needed to make the one size diapers ready for use. I've got enough done to be usable, but not quite as convenient without the extra 10 or 20 that I hope to eventually have available to use if I can manage it.

They are microfiber towels sewn on the back of the inside fabric. The liner fabric covers the towel and secures with a snap. If the microfiber gets icky somehow, I can unpick it from the wide zig zag and put a new one in easily. I made my boys diapers like this and they held up beautifully.
When they come out of the drier, I give the diaper a shake to settle the microfiber towel back into its folded position, snap it closed, fold in half and stack it up. Or what ends up happening is I grab a diaper, shake and snap right before putting it on my baby. Either way is pretty easy for the convenience of quick dry and really clean diapers. I'll see if I can get a pic of the inside to show how I put them together. The AIOs are easier to make then the fitted diapers. More eexpensive with the PUL and all the FOE. I also use a little piece of clear elastic in the back for support of the weight of the diaper. FOE only has so much gathering ability. Works great on the one layer of fabric along the legs. The double layer system for the cover and inside layer make for a double barrier against leaks. Nothing ever escaped with my boys in this style. I wanted super girly diapers this time as my girls didn't get really cute diapers. I was on a strict students budget, so they had fitted diapers and plain covers. I hope that the newborn AIO diapers work. I've only used fitted diapers on my newborns.
