So when I decided to make my own diapers I had contemplated a hybrid idea of a prefold with a gathered leg.
My final decision was to not try something new. Who was I to think I could re-invent the wheel.
Well this morning I decided to make my night wraps. Which I've designed in the less typical manner. See I know fleece is great at handling night time diapers. Except I don't like it as a material inside a diaper. And its not water proof, its water repellent. So I made myself a 2/2/2 fleece prefold, to be used between between cotton prefold and a waterproof wrap (like PUL or taffeta).
And then I thought im gonna try my hybrid idea. Im gonna put elastic where prefolds wrap around the leg.
Then put your wrap over top. Might sound bulky but its not. Its only 4/6/4.
Then I thought well I'll try it with the remaining prefolds left to sew. If I dont like it I can pick the threads and the elastic will let go. If I love it I can get some covered elastic and add it to the prefolds that dont have the gathered leg. I dont know if others are doing this. I was told there is a similar concept on YouTube. There is, its kinda cool, lil different, little more involved. Mine is more basic.
I'd love feedback on this. And I will totally be giving feedback after baby is born. Plus a post on either letting elastic go or adding it.
