Pocket Fitted Cloth Diaper

My latest project! I've been making pocket fitteds, just finished this one in all but tab snaps. I love the print!

Pocket fitteds are basically just like pocket diapers, you stuff them and put them on baby. Only they are not water proof, they generally need a cover.

Here is a pro/con list of the advantages of pocket fitteds vrs regular soaker sewn in fitteds.
Pro's:
*easier to wash and dry causing less issues with build up of either detergent or ammonia
*less wash/dry means cheaper more Eco friendly washing
*easier to hand wash if the need arises
*control the amount of soaking and the fibers used, from change to change, day to night, home to car.

Con's:
*Takes time to stuff
Ummm honestly that is the only con I can think of!

So for those of you who wish to know how to sew one of these marvelous diapers up I'll have a tutorial as soon as my life slows down a bit!
