Questionnaires sent! Fleece specifically designed for tri-folding PFs?

Update 2/4/13 ==> Finished up the rest and mailing today! Here are pics of the Mediums and Larges together:





And this is a LARGE with a trifolded Premium Little Lions PF:



Update 2/3/13 ==> ALL Medium testers are finished tonight and the Larges will be done tomorrow.

Here's a little pic that shows a Medium trifold wrap with a Medium size Sbish bamboo terry prefold trifolded inside. In this design, there's a little band in the front of the wrap for if you wanted to tuck the prefold to a desired length. I couldn't show this w/the smalls because I don't have any small PFs



Update 2/1/13 == > ALL Small testers are fnished and shipping out today! I will get the rest of the sizes finished this weekend and mailed either Saturday or Monday.

Thank you ALL for being so patient with me!!!

SMALLs stacked:




Update 1/28/13 ==> Finishing up this week! I have a lot of deadlines looming, but I will try to have ALL testers shipped by Monday 2/4 at the very latest. I'll be shipping out the Smalls first. Here's a shot of the first Small:



Lime/Blueberry "Wink" Small fleece wrap for trifold! Waist measures 9 1/2" at rest and thighs are about 6 1/2" at rest; at MAX, waist is about 18" and thighs about 11.5"


Update 1/16/13 ==> ALL the testers are cut out! Here is a little peek at the stack; colors not quite perfect, but at least it's a start


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is this something that would appeal to mamas, or are they pretty happy with the current options?

Some of the benefits I can think of: trimmer through the crotch since it's only needs to cover a trifolded PF, more snug fit than a standard cover since a tri-folded PF is generally less bulky than a fitted.

I think it's a great idea! I assume it would be a wrap style cover? I'd love a breathable cover but I don't know how to snappi (and my 2 yo is not that patient) and fitteds are out of the budget.

ETA didn't notice the poll! But yah, I'd love to try it!

Yes it would be a snapping wrap-style cover with something to help hold the PF into place; fleece isn't slippery though, so I find w/trifolding that it stays in place well.

Any others? Anyone who would want to test something like this?

If I test, it will be in Jan 2013. I want to wrap up testing on my Size 2 Doubles before trying this. I just had to get it out of my system by posting about it already

I'd love to try something like this. Fleece has always sounded great, but we just trifold. I'm potentially interested in testing!

I'll take one tester for each size starting January 7th! These wraps have a low-rise fit, so really only for trifolding mamas who like the under-belly fit:

Small: 10 -20 lbs
Medium: 15 - 30 lbs
Large: 25 - 40 lbs

Depending on price I would be interested in being your tester for the small size

I'd be interested in medium or large. DD is 28 lbs but wears her BG and Flips on the medium rise. I'd be pad folding flats so I think a trimmer fit would be better.

I LOVE the Green Line flece covers for pad folding. If yours were similar I would try them on future babies.

Awesome! We'd be medium or large...maybe large because she's 27lbs now. How much do you think you'd be asking?
