Quoting ~**germaphobic**~:" :lol: i know what you mean! that would be pretty cool, i saw a tutorial on youtube for the jersey material ones and it looked neat! "

Ok, so I got some old t-shirts out and tried it. They turned out ok, but it was harder to sew than the fleece since it stretches.

Pretty! What brand are those?



I got some fluffy mail today too! I'm sad, though. Once those ones I ordered from Zulily get here I'm done ordering OS. I still need 2 or 3 more newborn covers and I want another pack of flip inserts. Other than that I'm done buying for a while. *sadness*

How many times should i wash our prefolds before using them roughly?



I've done 2 warm washes so far (each 1 1/2 hours long)..



Do i need to put them in a drier to fluff them up the first time before using or is line drying ok?

Quick question. When making your own flats out of receiving blankets, what measurements do you use?

Faith uses like 28 or 30 I think. Mine are small but I'm not sure what size I didn't measure they're just what I had here and she's small so they're ok. Idk how long they'll fit but it should be a good while.

If new
3-5 hot washes with drying in between or boiling for 30 mins and drying. You need to have them quilted for first use. They shrink quite a bit. I would dry, then wash and dry again. They get more absorbent each time :)

Why do I have to hate stuffing pockets so much :( they're the only ones that are holdin up overnight. I'm thinking its the microfiber. So I wanna make some microfiber inserts soon and cover them in some cotton fabric. Do you think that would be ok on baby's skin to use inside a cover? I just HATE stuffing pockets so much. I cringe when I think about doing it :(

Buy some cheap alvababy ones or make your own and then sew some microfleece sleeves for them to go in! :)



Or sew the inserts into the microfleece sleeve.. it'll stay dry against bubs skin & would be relatively cheap.



Or you could just sew 1 layer of microfleece on top of your insert if you make your own/buy them.. probably be cheaper since you'll use less.
