Cloth diaper liners are helpful to have on hand for a number of reasons. They make it easier to remove waste and can help limit staining on your cloth diapers. Liners can also provide a stay-dry layer between your child’s skin and their diaper. This is especially helpful at night when diapers are worn for a longer duration.
Fleece is one of my favorite fabrics to use for cloth diaper liners. Not only is it soft, but it also doesn’t require sewing to avoid fraying. It’s also an affordable option and I can always find a pretty good selection of fleece remnants at thrift stores. By using these remnants I can easily make a dozen reusable liners for under $2. Fleece also does an excellent job of wicking away moisture. Even after a diaper has been soaked with urine, a fleece liner has the ability to feel surprisingly dry.
These No Sew Cloth Diaper Liners are an easy project despite your sewing or crafting ability. Wash them along with your cloth diapers for a simple, no fuss companion to your regular cloth diapering routine.
No Sew Cloth Diaper Liners
- ½ to 1 yard fleece
- Scissors or fabric cutter
- Measuring tape
- Cloth diaper
- Wash and dry your fleece before cutting to avoid shrinking.
- Open one of your cloth diapers and lay it on a flat surface. If using a one-size diaper make sure the rise snaps are adjusted to your child’s current size.
- Use a measuring tape to get a rough measurement of the length and width of your diaper.
- Use the measurements to cut your fleece. If you pull your fleece you will notice that it is stretchy in one direction and causes the fabric to slightly curl. Cut your shorter width measurement on the curled end.
- Layer one liner over a prefold or insert prior to placing them into a diaper cover.
The number of No Sew Cloth Diaper Liners you are able to make will vary depending on the size needed. With half a yard to 1 full yard of fabric you should be able to get well over a dozen inserts for even the chunkiest babies.
