Yay! Fun! I just made my first diaper cover! I use cloth prefolds tucked into a Bummis or gDiaper cover. I decided to try making my own covers - and they'd be fun to give as gifts to all the folks I know who are also having babies in May (a couple of them are planning on the local diaper service but they still need covers). I ordered fabric (printed PUL) from kidsinthegarden.com (lovely site and excellent CS by owner Melissa!) and really good prices - even with shipping to Canada. And I'm using my own modified version of the Chloe Toes diaper pattern - which is for AIOs, pockets, fitteds, swim diapers - but easy to turn into just a cover with a flap to tuck in the prefold.

Mine's the blue mermaid fabric - the flowers is a Bummis:

Great job mama!! I've always been afraid to try to make any PUL covers. I did make some fleece soakers and recycled wool soakers though.

They came out fantastic!! Your first?? I would never have thought that. I don't know what you paid for the fabric but there are plenty of yahoo groups that buy fabric in bulk. Co ops...the pricer are usually much better than what you can get online. Watch out for shipping and fees. There are plenty out there. Let me know if you want some names.
