I am new to this group and it was recommended to me because I want to start making my own cloth diapers, but it looks like a lot goes into it, so I figured I should talk to some experts.  Where should I start?  I like the diapers that grow with your baby, the ones with snaps on them, but who knows, maybe they are out of me league right now.  Any advice?

Welcome :)
I started sewing just to make cloth diapers and quickly caught on. I watched several youtube videos and also googled how to sew cloth diapers.

In here we have a few tutorials and links to several patterns in the sticky links on the main page.

I found it to be easy just VERY time consuming at first.

I am with Sarita33. that is exactly what I did, /i started out doing one size pockets. snaps I think are much easier than velcro.

I can't stress enough how helpful the YouTube videos are.  I just kept putting in YouTube searches like "make my own diapers", "how to make an AI2 diaper" "how to make a diaper cover", that kind of thing and when I would find one that looked interesting I would watch it.  It gave me a ton of confidence to make the diapers myself.  Of course, I had lots of sewing experience before that, but I felt totally lost starting on diapers, so I think it would work for even a novice seamstress.
