People doing thisSee everyone
I have a New Mommy group and the other moms are very interested in cloth diapering I would love to “cash in” and provide them with a quality diaper. 6 years ago
Here are some sources for anyone else starting on this goal! Laminated, waterproof fabric- www.fabrite.com, minimum order is 5 yds per color.
Hemp and organic fabrics- www.ectextile.com
Retail prices, but a good selection of schtuff- www.onestopdiapershop.com

I want to start doing it(making cloth diapers). We’ve been using fuzzi bunz on my son and it’s been good. I sometimes worry that the bulky diaper would affect his legs growing straight, but I think that’s just another crazy idea of mine. Anyway, I really want to start making my own because buying is kinda expensive and I think I can make it myself. Don’t know where to start, though. Any help is appreciated. 8 years ago
I have been making diapers for awhile but just got interested in selling them.I had to explain to my brother in law that you actually can wash and reuse cloth diapers so there is a real need to educate as well. I have people ask me about them and I am in the proccess of getting business cards made up so I have something to give people. Where would I sell the diapers locally? Would you recomend find stores because I can’t find any that want to sell diapers. they don’t sell enough and tell me they are not going to be carrying them anymore because nobody buys them. But they don’t really know much about them I over heard someone tell a customer that you should soak them in bleach for a few days!!!Crazy.
Any advice would be appreciated. 8 years ago
But if there were ever good advice, it would be to focus on selling locally, then work towards an online store. It really helps to have close input on how your patterns are working, what people would like changed and what they love most about your designs. It keeps you inspired and gives you the motivation you need to be more creative. I’ve been sewing & selling diapers for 6 years now, and as a single work-at-home-mom, it’s been a God-send. HTH, feel free to ask any questions you might have. 8 years ago
The more time I spend cloth diapering my own son the more I want to make and sell my own. I have the patterns, I have the skill, I even have an online store! LOL
So what’s lacking? A damn sewing machine that works! I’ve gone through 2 already, 2, and neither have worked. Thats what I get for being broke and buying second hand machines at the thrift store. Arg!
If only someone on freecycle would take pitty on me and answer my request, but I doubt thats going to happen anytime soon. sigh9 years ago
