I was in a fabric shop a couple of days ago, and there is a "$1 a yard"  
corner. We got talking to a young hispanic lady, who said she bought  
that sort of fabric for diapers for her baby. Real cloth diapers were  
too expensive, and obviously disposable ones were out of the question. I  
wonder how the dyes in the fabrics worked and would they bother the baby.

The colors and dyes are not much of a problem, especially after a few times
through the bleach when washing.  The real problem is selecting the 50% or more
cotton cloth for this use.  100% cotton flannel works best.

She was looking for 100% cotton......probably that is what she did.

A zillion years back, that is all we used........and you are so right,  
the worn ones had a million uses.

Cloth diapers can be made into wonderful kitchen aprons and dish towels.  With a
little embroidery these become wonderful gifts.  The real fun with using cloth
diapers in this kind of project is that most folks will not recognize the
'wonderfully' adsorbent cloth and be convinced this is an expensive hand made
gift.

When my twins were born, a friend gave them each an embroidered diaper  
that she had bought from Etsy. Their names are embroidered on them, and  
each one has a strip of Vera Bradley print fabric attached on the end.  
My kids are 5 now, and we still have their embroidered diapers hanging  
in their bathroom as hand towels.  (And yes, some might not know they  
are made from cloth diapers!)

30 years ago, I worked in our local Taget store, and cloth diapers were what we used to clean the glass display cases in Electronics and Jewelry - they left very little, if any, lint!

    I was raised in'em. My sibs were pampered. I also learned to
wash out the baby's diaper of the son my Mom was sitting for. Holy
cow! Get all that. That's also where I learned to NEVER open the small
pail in the bathroom. PHEW!!!!!! I passed right out the first time - I
was three. Everybody had a good laugh. I must have been told to, "Go
have a look in there."  I'm still a sucker to this day - as in trust;
I trust everyone equally....the first time.

    BTW
    The lint magically reappears in your belly-button.
