So I'm make my sister her newborn stash. What can you get from those two places that I can make soakers from? I'm making ai2's. Or should I break down and buy OBF? Or Zorb?

Joanns doesn't have much, flannel, birdseye diaper cloth, terry cloth and cotton batting. I would get something better. Even microfiber towels topped with baby safe fabric. I don't have a hobby lobby so I don't know.

Go to sams club get the huge pack of microfiber towels and sew flannel on top then make a wipeable cover so she can change the soakers my joanns has babyville which has everything for making clothdiapers even the snaps and colored velcro and a book to help but best bring coupons it gets expensive lol

I used to like microfiber...but it wasn't long before I decided it wasn't so great after all. I ended up switching to cotton batting (warm n natural) sandwiched in flannel - sewn as a petal-style soaker. Much better IMO.

Family dollar also sells the microfiber cloths in a big bag. In the car stuff.

Neither Joannes or HL in my area have OFB or zorb. I would suggest flannel or MF. You can make a lot of soakers from 1 yard and you can usually find sombody in FSOT to let go of just a yard :)

I bought hemp terry and it was the best decision I made with cloth diapering. I spent $25 with shipping and made 15 soakers out of it! To be conservative with it I would just sew a couple of layers in the wet zone. 4 layers would probably be substantial for a NB diaper, and then just top it with some minky or Alova suede cloth... I don't care for flannel it breaks down and gets all pilly nasty!
