id rather buy my prefolds as im no confident enough in my sewing abilites to feel i could do it right to keep baby dry and make a good durable prefold that would last but i am very much into the idea of making my own covers for said prefold diapers. i have to use pre folds cuz i am poor and its the cheapest to buy used/new online and on craigslist (prefer the local person on person idea of that better tehn online) but im new to the whole idea in general and really my sewing abilites extend to fixing holes in things but i feel like i could totally make the covers. im wondering, what are the best waterproof fabics thats are easier to clean and the cheapest to use? and where can i find easy simple patterns to base my covers one? as well is it possible to just make simple ones in the shape of prefolds then simple fold them like a prefold making the whole thing thatmuch easier? and is it easier to make the covers to use with the snappies tings (id rather not use the pins wether they lock or not) or snaps i put on the cloth covers? and is velcrow also an option?
