I love cloth diapers. But they're so expensive! Doesn't the cost defeat the purpose of being frugal?
After ABW gave me a Bumkin, I was hooked on all-in-ones (coincidentally, my friend Emily offered me some before or shortly after Tucker was born, but I was unaware of how freakin' awesome they were. I told her to give them to another interested friend. My loss. Seriously). They are $18 each, and I just can't justify spending that much, particularly when I have the ability to make them.
So I present to you the $4 version of the Bumkin. I made it, with help from the Mama Bird pattern. I thought I had chosen the right pattern size (10-20 lbs), but I can't see this think fitting Tucker eight pounds from now.
