Thanks to Stephanie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I just made my first fleece diaper cover 2 days ago. I just bought your plain old every day fleece & it works great! We even left her in it overnight & she woke up with no leakage. I didn't do anything special to the fleece & it is only 1 layer.

For the fleece cover I just improvised using a pattern for a layette that had a diaper cover in it (Simplicity or McCalls, can't remember which). I used regular sew-in snaps, but only because I had them sitting there. I definitely need to find some stronger kind of snaps. Anyway, because fleece is a nonraveling fabric I didn't worry about the ends. I used the fleece to make elastic casings in the legs & they seem to fit her really well.
