Mara comes to make diaper covers
My good friend Mara came today to help me make diaper covers for little Josiah. I had decided to do cloth diapers and Mara found all the materials to make the covers. I had some other covers that were given to me and so we tried to make a cover that combined the best features of all the diaper covers into one design. We then made two different sizes (newborn and medium) as those were the sizes I had the least of at the time. The covers have 3 layers (outer cotton print, inner waterproof, and fleece against babies skin) and between the fleece and waterproof layer there is a pocket to insert a diaper. This way you can either have the fleece against babies skin or you can put the cloth diaper on top of the fleece to minimize the wetness to the cover.
