Here is what to consider:
Let's say you have the lowest wage and make $60 a day. If you make diapers, you can make, let's say, 5 diapers a day. So one diaper would cost you $12 plus the cost of the materials. Is it how much you'd spend if you were to buy them?

It depends on your normal wage and the time it takes you to make a diaper.

ETA: I forgot to say that JoAnns or Walmart may not be the best source of PUL fabric. I'd find out about their return policy on de-laminated PUL first. You may end up spending more $$ and your time than if you buy on-line from a trusted cloth diaper supply store. FSOT is another option as long as the seller can tell you where they got their PUL.

As for the absorbent part you can get away with what you have on hand without spending extra. Just my 2c.

$29.00 with all the bells and whistles.

But let me tell you that it doesn't require any more skills to make it than to make a dress. And you can always contact me if you need help with it.

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets

Thanks so much. I'll see about gathering some materials. I need to order some fabric for another project and might be able to throw some diaper materials in the order as well if I can. Where are good places to buy diaper materials? I like hemp and natural things for next to skin.

Re: AIO/ Pocket with inner gussets. Added new version.

I hear you about daughter.
Thank you ladies. I am not sure about "talented". Maybe crafty?

cokelush, did you check Wazoodle, Cloth Diaper Supplies and Kids in the Garden. They offer quality fabric and have a good customer service.
Don't be mislead though by Wazoodle's "pre-shrunk". Can't speak about all fabrics but their bamboo does shrink and not a little.

I uploaded new pictures to the OP to show what I was talking about when said I have a new version.
No ruffles this time.

Which one? Thank you!

I added same style AIO in size Medium. I will probably skip second pocket opening for smaller sizes. It is was a bit finicky to make.
