newborn winged prefold!

I asked earlier this week about sizing for newborn flats and it was suggested that I try daddy flats instead - after doing a bunch of searching, I came across the tutorial from Adventures In Fluff for the upcycled winged prefold. I was trying to use a bunch of flannel, so instead of tshirt material, mine are two layers of flannel with a layer of terry cloth sewn into the center. I don't have a serger, so I turned and topstitched. When folded, it will be 6 layers of flannel and a layer of terry - I will likely have to use diaper pins instead of snappi's with these, but oh well - I don't think it's half bad for my first attempt at a diaper! I plan to add elastic to the back and around the leg portions next time. [IMG][/IMG]

Very cute! You could add some terry to the wings and the snappi area if you wanted it to snappi?? Or next time just do terry on the outside...

Also I have snappi'd upcycled tshirts no probs, so next time if you want to do that I would go for it.

Thanks, guys! I'm pretty impressed with myself, lol.

JeeBee- that's a great idea, I'll definitely be trying that. Only 4 more weeks to go before I can actually use my CD's, it's giving me too much time to experiment.
