the construction of them is as follows:
inner: velour (bamboo (obv) $8yd or cotton (cv) $5yd)
hidden layer: bamboo sweatshirt fleece $8yd
outer layer: super cute knit print (no more than $3yd...most bought super cheap from goodmama's discontinued fabrics or repurposed fabrics i already had)
snap-in soaker: 2 sets serged of: 1layer velour/2 layers regular fleece (all bought as remenents super cheap for about a $1yd)
for the pattern i used the rita rump pocket http://handmadebyrita.blogspot.com/2007/10/classic-rrp-ritas-rump-pocket-pattern.html
the only changes i made were extending the middle by and 1.5inches for a longer rise and i made the wings a bit fatter...(i actually deconstructed one of my well loved goodmamas (gm) for snap placement)
overall i would say that i am very happy with the outcome though...they are extremely absorbant and trim!
here are some pics...
