One Size Diaper Cover Tutorial Flip Style with Leg Gussets

This is my second time cloth diapering and it was challenging since I started with my first boy when he was 18 months. Checking with friends I heard the covers are a great option when cloth diapering small babies since they requiere to be changed more often.

But getting ready for the arrival can be quite an expense and I just couldn't justify buying different kinds of cloth diapers. So I decided to give it a try to make covers and I'm not going to lie, the first ones I made were not perfect but they worked and after a couple they turned out better.

For this reason I decided to share this tutorial with all of you who wish to make your own diapers.
Esta es la segunda vez que utilizo pañales de tela y fue un reto ya que empece con mi primer hijo cuando el tenia 18 meses. Platicando con amigas me comentaron que las cubiertas son una gran opción cuando se utiliza los pañales de tela especialmente con bebes pequeños ya que requieren ser cambiados mas frecuentemente.

Pero prepararse para la llegada de un nuevo integrante puede ser un poco caro y no pude justificar comprar diferentes tipos de pañales. Así que decidí probar hacer las cubiertas y no voy a mentir, los primeros no me salieron tan bien pero funcionaron y después de algunos intentos salieron mejor.

Por esta razón decidí hacer este tutorial para ustedes que desean hacer sus propios pañales.

I had no idea where to start with the covers, the only thing I knew is that I wanted them with leg gussets to avoid the mess and have a little more support. That's why I started working on the pattern I needed and I knew the pockets I make were my favorite because the way the fit my baby.

No tenia idea de donde comenzar con las cubiertas, la única cosa que sabia que quería son los bolsillos en las piernas para tener un poquito mas de apoyo. Por eso empece a trabajar en el patron que necesitaba y modifique el que ya tenia para mis pañales de bolsillo.

The modifications that I made to the other pattern are quite simple, pretty much just added "wings" where the leg elastic should be. I traced an extra 4 inches for each leg (pictured above) And they work great, everything stays inside.

This is how I made them.

Las modificaciones que le hice al otro patron fueron bastantes sencillas, practicamente solo agregue "alas" en donde va el elástico de las piernas. Tracé 10 centimetros extras por cada pierna (miren la imagen de arriba) Y me funcionan muy bien, todo se queda adentro.

Así es como los hice.

This is how the gussets look like, I've been using them with my baby and I haven't had an issue and it was definitely easier to use when he was younger since you can just replace the inserts and wipe the cover and re-use it.

Así es como se ven, los he estado usando con mi bebe y no he tenido ningún problema, definitivamente es mucho mas fácil de usar cuando están pequeños ya que solo puedes remplazar los insertos y limpiar las cubierta para reusarlos.

It might seem a little complicated to make the gussets the first time but the more you practice the better they will turn out. I feel that making the covers can be easier than the pockets since you don't have to sew the inner fabric.

Puede que sea un poquito complicado hacer los bolsillos al principio pero entre mas practiques mejor quedaran. Siento que hacer las cubiertas es mas fácil que hacer los de bolsillo ya que no necesitas coser la tela del interior.
