Diaper Sewing_: Terry Towelling

Thanks to Shelly for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I make some of my diapers too! Maybe one thing you could try is
using towel terry instead of woven terry... IMO it is more absorbant! For nightime diapers that need to be really absorbant, I take a piece of towel terry twice as large as the soaking pad area and about as long.

I turn it inside out and stitch around the edges then attach it to the front of the diaper by cutting the front fabric a little longer and folding the diaper fabric over the narrow end of the terry pad and stitch it down. I have a baby boy so I take this attached pad and fold it in half over his wee wee giving an extra four layers of terry where he needs it the most!

I also line my diapers with two layers of towel terry. I hope this helps and I hope I wasn't being to confusing but it is hard to describe using words!

BTW, since the partially attached terry liner isn't 'inside' the diaper, it dries really quickly! I love them! I also add elastic around the legs and at the back waistband to help contain everything. I didn't use the BBD pattern, I just made my own pattern (It has been slowly evolving!) starting out with a disposeable diaper that I traced on newspaper then adjusted it to my liking.
