FOE Cover with Surrounding Gussets

There was a post on my cloth diaper sewing board asking for a tutorial on how to make this type of diaper cover.  I personally have no gusset love, so I won't do many tutorials for things like this in the future.  Maybe just another with only side double-gussets and a non-FOE version.

Use a long straight stitch along the very edge to baste the pieces together.

Everything basted together with a loose straight stitch around the outside edge.

Now just sew your outer FOE on like you normally would for a basic FOE cover.

  1. Seriously... incredible timing! I eagerly look forward to your tutorial for the standard gusset cover without FOE. Great tutorial as always!! Thank you! <3

  2. I love all your tutorials! Thanks for putting this together. This is one thing I haven't worked up the enthusiasm to make yet...

  3. Sorry to ask this but how can I find the templates to make this? it looks awesome!

  4. This is exactly what I've been looking for! I have your Small to Large T&T Cover Template to go by, but what do you use to cut your gusset pieces? Also when you use FOE do you still cut your pieces using the seam allowance or do you use the 2nd line for stitching? Thanks!!!

  5. Sorry nix that second part of the comment I found your OS FOE Cover template!

  6. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and being willing to share it with us. I'm sure that you have mentioned it and I somehow missed it but what is the purpose/idea behind having the snap on "hook and loop"?

    1. The hook is what snags other diapers and especially FOE in the wash/dryer. Laundry tabs are there to try and hold onto it so this is minimized. However, if you have removable tabs (the ONLY place where you use hook), then you never risk it in the first place because you remove them before washing and drying.

  7. Hello,
    I can not find this model in your bosses, can you tell me that?
    a big thank-you

  8. Great. Which book you have projects?
