Now that all the fluff materials has arrived, been purchased and prewashed; its time to make my diapers :) ok well the baby's diapers. These prefolds will have a finished size of 12.4 x 15 inches aand be a 2/4/2 diaper. Don't be worried that a 2/4/2 wont be sufficient. It is. And with these fabric choices it will be absorbent.
•2 outer layers (I used cotton flannel). Each piece 13.6 in x 16.4
• 2 core layers (I used bamboo French Terry and zorb). Each piece 5 x 15
• Velcro 15cm.
Once all your pieces are cut its time to prep and sew.
• Outside layer
TIME TO SEW:
First change the needle in the sewing machine to a quilting or universal needle. Changing the needle at the start of each project gives a smoother stitch.
Open up Velcro and place 10cm of loop (fuzzy) side on the bottom-middle of the outside of diaper. Zigzag in place.
That extra piece of loop Velcro on inside of diaper allows you to fold over hook side of Velcro at wash time. This makes it last longer.
TO FOLD YOUR PREFOLD:
Fold bottom edges on an angle
