Thanks to Ingrid for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I am going to attempt to make my own diapers too. While I haven't done it yet, these are few hints that I can give you before you start that I was told...
Start by using materials around your house like receiving blankets and old towels. When you become good at it, you can go out and buy some flannel and/or terry to make more.
There are some patterns out there that you can buy, but I know a lot of people use diapers they already have (usually their favorites) and make patterns out of them. You can even use a disposable to make a pattern.
If there are specific questions you have, you can always subscribe to the sewdiapers list on Yahoogroups. It's just like this one, but you can ask about sewing diapers specifically.
For nighttime, you can make your own fleece covers, make covers from old wool sweaters that have become felted, or use woven wool to sew a cover (you'll probably have to lanolize the last two).
If you know how to knit, there is a pattern on the Borntolove.com site that you can use.
