    Any tips on getting this on? I tried my friendly one tonight and due to fitting errors, it didn't go too well. She almost walked out of it.
    Also, @gal5150 any more pics on it? I really want to try yours! :)

    I have been searching all over for a simple low cost duckling diaper. I love yours! I'm going to make a few and see how they work for our ducklings along with a couple others when they get a little bigger. I will post some pictures tomorrow after I put them on. [​IMG]

    I tried it and it worked. Some were fine with it and others not so much. Did the job though. My pint sized neighbor donated some of her socks to the cause. Great idea!

    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas!! I acquired a Gosling and would love to be able to take him/her anywhere and everywhere with me. I took him/her to Lowe's with me the other day in her little sock diaper that I made. He/She followed me around the store while I shopped :-D

    For the shoelace holes I used grommets to reinforce them. I just so happened to have a grommet tool I purchased for around $3 from Harbor Freight a little while ago. I knew there was a reason to buy it at the time.
