While pregnant, I decided that I wanted to do cloth diapering. Its a great thing really, for many reasons, but most notably for the kindness to the environment and the kindness to your wallet. I looked online for a suitable diaper pail that was compatible with cloth diapering. I found the Diaper Dekor Plus and so far, so good (note: I actually would opt for the largest pail they offer, the XL rather than the Plus. Cloth diapers are so much bulkier than disposables and the bag fills up pretty quickly). One of the huge perks of the Diaper Dekor was that the design allowed you to use a reusable diaper pail liner rather than buying their plastic refills all the time, thus saving even more money and more landfill space (not to mention petroleum!).

Diaper Pail Liner
one yard of 60" wide Risptop Nylon (or PUL)
approximately 45" of cord to tie up the bag (or a round shoelace)
Step 1: Cut the yard or fabric in half (along the fold line from the bolt works well as long as you make sure it is centered first). Also, be sure to check that the fabric really is 60" wide. :-) You will now have 2 pieces of fabric that measure approximately 30"x36". Trim the length to about 32".
Step 2: Along the short (30") side, fold over about 1/2" and stitch. You don't have to worry about Ripstop fraying and raveling, but I wanted to fold over the raw edge anyway, just for aesthetics. This will be the top of the bag.
