Flannel Fitted Diaper

I'm using up some more of my old flannel to make donation fitteds.  Sure, they aren't squishy or stretchy like the bamboo or cotton fleece fitted diapers or T-shirt fitteds...  and they aren't snappiable like the prefitteds, but they still work!

 I applied my front snaps and used my M-L Fitted template again.  This time I made the turned and top-stitched style and not a pocket.  The shell is 4 layers total, and each petal of the two-petal snap-in soaker are 5 layers.  I used thicker diaper-maker flannel for everything except the printed outer.



All of my free diaper pattern templates can be downloaded here: http://prefold2fitted.blogspot.com/2012/10/online-free-downloads.html

    1. For a newborn, I'd probably do a 3 layer shell (one inner and 2 outer for snap-backing support) and two 3 layer petals.

    1. There is an OS or M/L soaker template on my downloads page. I just did something like that but without the contoured top and just as a rounded rectangle instead for easy serging.

    1. For sure. You can use any absorbent fabric. Make sure to strip the towel first so it absorbs well. You will also need to serge or zig-zag the edges after cutting when using terry cloth. :)
