Stay-Dry Extended Wing Prefitteds

I got a custom order for 4 of these.  I haven't seen the same thing sold before, so I thought i'd share the photos of one of the finished products.  they are very simple.  Just the baabaababy.us-style of seamless extended wing prefold fitted diaper, but instead of a print outer fabric, I used suedecloth as an inner fabric.



Some step-by-step pics (I might add in descriptions a little later):









Using a great little thing called a "bodkin" to thread my elastic:


And the finished custom order ready to send out.  :)

  1. When you put these together, what size prefold did you need to use to get the finished size you wanted? For example, would a newborn prefold give you a newborn size pre-fitted, or would you need to go up to an infant prefold to end up with a newborn pre-fitted?

    1. The elastic lowers the functional rise. So, an infant size prefold makes a newborn size fitted. Etc. I just make 2 sizes. NB and then fold-over rise OS using a premium prefold.

  2. Instead of suede cloth, do you think athletic wicking would work?

    1. For sure. Or microfleece/microchamois. However, those are both more stretchy, so a bit more difficult to sew to a non-stretchy woven like prefold gauze.
