I posted a while ago about the scads of diaper making supplies I've had taking up space in my cupboards. I've finally gotten started and figured I'd try to keep myself accountable be keeping track of my progress here.

As of today, all the main fabric is cut. Microfiber for sewn-in soakers is cut, but extra flannel for soakers isn't. I set snaps for 7 fitteds, 3 covers and 5 pockets tonight.

With the materials I have, I think I will be making about 10 fitteds, 10 covers and 25-30 pockets. I think eventually I might want more fitteds than that, but again, I'm just working with what I have.

Right now, I have the following homemade and usable:
4 small stuffable AIOs
5 medium pockets

And the following commercial:
24 infant PFs (that I plan to use for inserts later)
12 OS Kawaii Minky pockets
12 Medium PFs
4 Medium Bummis covers
2 Cheapy pull-on covers
About 35 inserts (not sure of brand)

Some of the pockets I'm making may be going to my niece in Alaska if her mom decides to commit to cloth.

Didn't get much done today. I finished one fitted and got about halfway through a cover when my needle broke. No biggie normally, but of course when I have a ton of sewing to do today (and DH home so I can actually sit down!), I'm all out of needles. Looks like a trip to Walmart tomorrow!

Here's the fitted I made today on the smallest setting:

And the largest:

How do you know where to put the snaps? I have a snap plyer and want to try some snaps, but I'm not sure how to know where they go.
