Here are a few sample layouts to give you an idea of the number of soakers you can get from different amounts of fleece.

I think these diagrams are GREAT!Would you let me use them in my blog translated into Spanish?I'd be crediting you and your blog, of course. There's nothing like these in Spanish.
Sorry, I forgot to say my blog is a non-profit about diaper sewing, I don´t sell anything. www.flordejara.wordpress.com

I had to be careful but I just got 2 larges, 3 mediums, and 2 smalls from a yard of fleece. (Doesn't include the extra wetzone layers). I did have a few extra strips so I think it can be done with a little room for error.

Also, THANKS for the pattern!

I made my first fleece soaker today using some fleece I had lying around.

Tomorrow I am going to the store to pick up some more fleece (and wool sweaters from a consignment store, if I can find some). This is such a great resource! Thanks.

I've been cloth diapering for years, but I've never used soakers before. Do you like using fleece or wool better? Do you have a preference?

They both have their pros and cons. I like the ease of throwing a fleece soaker into the washing machine. I like the stretch and fit of a wool soaker, though. I have both, and I like both for different reasons. I leave fleece soakers/longies/shorties for my Mom because she has been known to throw everything into the washing machine.
