Last night was my second attempt and it went a little better! I used a pattern from Mama Bird. My sewing sucked because I had very little patience (I'm sick), but it came out okay. I used an old forgotten blanket for the actual cover, 2 layers of a flannel blanket between the 2 layers of the first blanket, 8 layers of the flannel blanket for the soaker, and then I just folded the birdseye flat diaper in thirds and put it in there. I put the soaker under his 'boy parts' because he has been chaffed lately. It's a tad bit too small, but it's pretty cool and actually works
I can't make any more right now because I need more hook and loop tape (read: Velcro), perferably the kind without an adhesive backing. I might as well find some Polyurethane Laminate (PUL) so I can really do it right!
