Template over an approx. 18.5" square (2 layers of cotton fleece.)
Scraps used for snap-backings.
Front and rise snaps added.
Ready to serge together (serge without the knife to get around the sharp inner curves.)
Serged all around leaving the front open for adding elastic. Elastic casings sewn.
Elastics installed, wing snaps added, and front serged closed.
Flaps folded into wetzone soakers.

Someone asked me how it is that I do the inside curves with my serger. You just have to drop your cutting knife. It is a little different on different types of machines, but I'll show how mine lowers.
My knife was VERY sticky the first time I tried to drop it. I had to push VERY hard and even then it was gunked up and didn't want to turn. Now it is easy and lubed up a bit.
Open both doors on your serger.
Push HARD on that knob and you'll see the knife push out...
Then, while pushing, rotate it clockwise...
When rotated all the way down, it will lock back in like this:
Then you close the doors again and serge with no knife! :)
