New diaper...new pattern

Van is in serious need of some new diapers! So yesterday I had a bit of time while the kiddos were napping. I finished it last night when they both went to bed and after playing a mean game of Skippo with PD (in which I won!!) ;)

I started cloth diapering Annika when she was about 7 months old and it was my intention to cloth diaper Van from birth (well I did off and on). My main problem with him is that I don't have a lot of diapers that fit all that well (he's a pretty skinny little guy), which means I need to make some (and sewing time is hard to come by with 2 kiddos).

But I was able to find a new pattern (free) at Making it Little by Little I have to say this was my first time making this pattern and I LOVE it!!! I really like how it's narrower between the legs so he doesn't look so bow-legged. I will definitely be making more. Although I have to make them in a smaller size since the mediums are a bit big on my little skinny man.

I made this with flannel outer and flannel inner with a hidden layer of fleece, not real thick but I'm able to add an insert and hopefully it will dry quicker.

Action shots....you want action shots! Sure!!

Thanks Carmen! I don't mind using cloth diapers at all. They are REALLY easy to use and there are many different kinds. Thanks for becoming a follower!
