I think I came up w/ a new/easy flat fold for toddler.**PIC HEAVY**FLOUR SACKS
 
I think this is a new one. I just couldn't get the hang of the fancy ones just I sat down this morning to come up with something. Used flour sack flats. Fleal free to correct me and name this fold if it has allready been done.:giggle:Here it is:
:thumbsup:

Put the doubler in the middle and start like you would a kite fold by bringing the corners up and in.

Bring pointy bottom up to be folded at doubler.

Bring sides again so points meet and bottom folds at doubler.

Grab at points and fold down and out to be straight across at bottom.

Fold top down and press it all smooth w/ hands.

Pull sings straight out and pull across nice and tight.

Be sure to overlap so the snappi grabs plenty of material and not baby's skin.

I just couldn't GET the other folds! Had to come up with something dumby proof, LOL! It hold up and stays tight too. Bonus!

I've never tried flats, but this fold looks pretty easy to do and I like the trimness. :)

I'm going to try this later.

What brand flour sack is it? I have Targets (also use IKEA burb cloths) and I used to love origami fold but the rise is way too short. My ds is 6 months and 18lbs, but I seem to having rise issues with a lot of dipes, especially flats.

These are from walmart. I hated them at first because I just couldn't figure out any of the folds, hence making my own really easy one. I notice on William today that the rise of this fold was nice and high. I like that much better.

Oh can't wait to try this! I too have loved the origami fold. But I'm starting to find the rise a little short on my long ds. Thanks for the pics!
