1x 50cmx50cm square of PUL will be enough to make 1 nappy, if you want to make a pocket style nappy this will also be enough for the stay dry inside layer.
If you want to make a fitted style nappy (that is what this pattern is) you'll need a 50x80cm square of the absorbent layer.

Standard Doubler & Fold-to-Fit™ Doubler: 1/4 to 1/3 yard.
It is generally more fabric-efficient to cut several nappies at the same time. Due to variations in fabric widths, it's important to experiment with your own fabric to see what will be most efficient. Try tracing several copies of the pattern and playing with how to lay them out to get the most nappies from the material you have.
It is possible to get 6 PooPockets!™ nappies out of 1 metre of 150cm wide PUL.
Sewing Level: Easy!
Machines and Methods:
PooPockets!™ Nappies can be sewn with an overlocker or a regular sewing machine. Overlockers tend to sew the fastest and finish the edges of the nappies neatly and durably. Regular sewing machines set to zigzag stitches or other overcast stitches can be used effectively to imitate an overlocker. Just a simple straight stitch done with a regular sewing machine and a method called 'stitching and turning' creates beautifully finished nappies.
PooPockets!™ Nappies can be made in as many ways as there people who make them. PooPockets!™ can be made entirely of one type of fabric or a mix, for instance, flannel for one nappy layer and knit terry for the other. Choice and combinations of fabrics are a personal preference. There are advantages and disadvantages to all choices. Some things to consider when choosing your fabric are: comfort, absorbency, durability, and drying time.
This Pattern is strictly for home use only.
