I wanted to have some organic nappies for our baby, organic fabric is softer and more sustainable than other fabric. I found some bamboo french terry and regular terry fabric online, it turned out to be thinner than I was expecting so I couldn't make as many nappies as I expected because I had to make them double layered but they are beautifully soft and will be great for our little new born's bottom. I made some booster pads from the organic terry with a bit of a ripped towel we had lying around in the middle to add a bit of extra absorbency.
Nappy squares are so easy to make, even someone with the most basic sewing skills should be able to cut a few squares and overlock or zigzag stitch the edges so they don't fray. The thing I also like about nappy squares is that there are so many ways to fold a nappy, do a quick Google search and you can see that nappy folding really can be an art form!
As my handmade cloth nappy stash is pretty small I also found some organic modern cloth nappies second hand on Ebay which was a lucky find. You can never have enough nappies but this should do us to start with.
