Well, whether that was actually the case or not, it won't be an issue anymore. On my most recent trip to Joann's Fabrics, I noticed a new section in the store: cloth diaper-making accessories!! Everything they have right now is made by the same company, Babyville. I didn't study the things for very long, so I'm not sure if the materials are intended for making all-in-one diapers (with an absorbent liner built right in), or just the covers which would go on top of the actual diaper.
I doubt I'll ever actually decide to make cloth diapers at home, but it makes me happy to see those materials available. It's a sign that more people are choosing cloth which, as my readers know, I totally think is the right decision.
Check out a few of the cute materials they make:
The book that teaches you all the sewing methods
Snaps that come in many different colors (they also make velcro for the closures)
Some cute waterproof fabrics
I love dinosaurs for little boys :-)
