It should have taken you to the workhorse fitted.
They are basically that material, but already shaped and have elastic so they aren't as bulky. You can close with a snappi or get them with snaps already on them. I loved them.

Oh ya. I used both prefolds/fitteds at first and I much rather use these than a prefold. Mostly for bulk and possibly a little for laziness lol



Oh that rocks! I don't have snap pliers or anything.

I don't sew. Well ok I have hand sewn a piece of elastic twice for tutus. Thankfully that workmanship was hidden under tulle. It's kinda scary.



And other fitteds? Thirsties fab fitted for something you can find retail.
WAHM Squishy Butt fitteds. I can go without a cover with those suckers around the house. They are amazing!

Quoting 3.24.10 ♥ 9.10.11:" Shoot, I use all of those. Borax, washing soda, baking soda, fels naptha and oxy clean. How do you wash yours?"

washing soda is super caustic.

Quoting Mama Lizzy :]:" Sooo if you want to switch from using prefolds but would like to still use the covers....what would you use?"


are you referring to the pocket shell as a cover? If so, make sure to use the proper term. a cover can be reused but a pocket shell cannot. you can use it to function like a cover, but it is one time use only, and you switch it out every time you'd switch out whatever is being used as a soaker ie., fitted, inserts, etc.

just as long as the microfiber doesn't go up against baby's skin

no, they soak well but are trim since the excess from folding isn't tucked in as well.
