Side Pinned Flat.

I've been pondering the flat problem that lots of mamas have and I had an idea....

I think some of it is the wings and the other is the poop. So I got rid of the wings by putting them on the inside of the diaper and the poop is contained by the classic Jellyroll. Sadly you can only pin your flat if you do it this way but I think it works well. It looks nice and tidy too. Like a side snapping fitted but its a side pined flat.




Obviously I have too much time on my hands today because I've take step-by-step pics.



Top flap down and then sides in to the middle, tuck anything that overlaps.



Or you can fold the top flap down after you fold the side in...totally up to you.




Fold up the bottom point and lay in your doubler.



Jellyroll the sides, fold the wings in and then pin in place. Check your jelly rolls and your done.



I hope this helps

Hmm I wonder if you were to cut off the shorter peice of 2 snappies if it would hold this fold in place...
