Which bamboo terry flats did you order that lay flat? Are they trim & absorbent?
Thanks

Are the gmd large trim when pad folded? Do you think I could stuff them in a pocket when pad folded?
Thanks

My edges lay flat, but I am sooooo annoyed that they aren't even close to square. I have some bamboo terry from fruit of the womb on etsy that lay pretty flat. The edges curl in slightly, but if I smooth them down they are great!

They are trim. I use them to stuff my BG 4.0s. They fit best on the medium and largest rise settings.

Can someone post a pic f what ths thread is talking about? I'm so confused. Lol. What's a not-flat flat look like?

I have many flats, and none are not-flat, I think. Flour sack towels, swaddlebees, osocozy, and ikea all in my possession ATM, also have owned ODC and others that I can't remember the name. Sometimes they are wrinkly on the edges from drying, but as soon as I fold them they are fine. My swaddlebees are perfectly square, as we're the ODC. They also have serged edges, so no awkward lumpiness when the edges are folded over a bunch of times.

Re: Flats that have flat edges after Washing.

ooooooh that is a tough that plus the squaring issue. It is pretty difficult to get them exactly square and flat (I have sewn quite a few with different materials). As a few people already stated above, its the material that makes all the difference in the world. I personally prefer the edges to be T&T over serging...I haven't bought any name brands so I wouldn't know where to begin to tell you on that, but from sewing experience I think bamboo worked best!

edited after thought: I like using a double needle when finishing the edges too, that helped!
