I wanted to use microfleece for the part that touches the baby's bum, because it wicks away the moisture very efficiently and should prevent nappy rash. For the outer I wanted to use something cute and I found this cartoon spider fleece which fits the bill.
On the next nappy I'll:
- Add an extra flap on outer top layer so that I can hide the elastic on the back.
- Zig-zag the inner layer at the back before I put the elastic in.
- Remember to add small pockets that you turn the hook part of the Velcro into when washing (otherwise it ruins the fleece).
- Print out the pattern more carefully - look pretty large to me.
