It's not difficult if you are handy with a sewing machine. Here is a useful link.

Sorry, I posted my previous message before I had finished.

If you are making your own nappies, you can use just about any fabric. For ease of drying, I prefer separate boosters, but that is pure personal preference. I made some all fabric pocket nappies, that I can stuff virtually anything absorbent into, but unlike commercial pocket nappies, they still need a waterproof wrap.

You can buy PUL fabric from or here.

I have some step by step patterns from a website called mamabird, but it doesn't seem to exist any more, so if you would like them I could try to email them to you.

Let me know if you need any more info and I'll try to help
