I did it! I have finally gotten the time and design to make my first diaper insert. I think some of the most time consuming part of the design process was the research into size and materials to make the best insert I could with materials I would not have to order online in order to make the insert. I came up with one layer of flannel to make the insert nice and soft against the skin (if left to be against baby's skin), followed by two layers of microfiber and two layers of quality cotton. I decided to use a fairly common measurement of 5.5" by 12".
I like microfiber for the absorbant layers to quickly take in the wetness, but the feeling it has whenever I handle it and the way it loves to cling on for dear life to anything it touches in the dryer, made it that I didn't want it to be the only material I used. Anyway, here are some pictures I took of my insert.
