Fleece liners come in very handy while cloth diapering. They can keep creams that aren’t safe for cloth away from your diapers or keep your baby feeling dry when using natural fiber diapers. But you may wonder: are they worth the price? In my opinion, no. They cost about $1.00 per liner and I find the commercially available ones to be thin and not worth the price. Especially when you can make your own DIY fleece liners easily and for much less. You make them yourself for 24¢ per liner.
I am not crafty at all and you don’t have to be to make DIY fleece liners. All need you need to know is how to use a pair of scissors. Your local fabric store probably has a fabric remnant area and they will most likely have fleece. It might not be pretty fleece, but it’ll be cheap. You could also buy some off the bolt if you’re so inclined and you will still get more for your money than buying commercially made fleece liners.
Use an insert as a size template
Once you have the first liner cut out then you can use it as a guide to cut the rest of your fabric
They don’t have to be perfect so don’t get too fussy with it. Just prep them and you’re good to go! To prep them I wash and dry them three times before using them, usually with my regular laundry. The first wash you may want to wash them with towels since they can be a bit linty at first.
And there you have it. 26 fleece liners for just over $6.00!
