What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have strong pins available when sewing everything together, especially the sewn-in soaker.

Hi! Great job - my first practice nappy looked pretty awful. Just a bit of advice - I can't see on your nappy how the soaker goes in, but I find the best nappies for ease of use and drying time are the ones where the soaker is either attached with snaps, or only sewn in at one end, so it hangs out and dries loose. It may not be an issue for you - where I am, some days it's hard to get washing dry. Good luck!

Thanks! The only issue I've found with it so far is that the wings are too long. The soaker is completely sewn in. I was going to try it that way first and see how it turns out. If I find that the drying time takes too long, then I'm going to make it like a pocket diaper (I prefer those anyway). My next project is to get a little better at the sewing and then start making waterproof covers using the PUL fabric I purchased. :-)
