Melissa started her venture into cloth diapers several years ago, and wrote to say she found MyFrugalBabyTips site to be really helpful.

She said she was especially into the frugal tips.

Since then, she has made her own diapers, covers, etc. for virtually free, and wanted to share this and other frugal things she does on her blog, Making Do With the Not So New

Melissa made a whole series on Really Thrifty Mom Cloth Diapers, and asked if I might consider putting them on my frugal baby tips page.

Of course, I said yes!

She provides photo instructions and minimal sewing skill projects (she says: cuz that's all I got!), which she would have found helpful when she started her adventure.

Instructions on How to Make Cloth Diaper Essentials for Virtually Free:

Prefold Cloth Diaper from Old T-Shirt

Diaper Liners from Flannel or T-shirt

Velcro Diaper Fastener

T-shirt Cloth Diaper Wipes

Wool Sweater Diaper Cover

Wool Sweater Longies - Winter Diaper Covers

Free Cloth Diaper Patterns - Over 60 designs!

And more!

Thanks to Melissa for this Frugal Baby Tip!
