The new fabric will make them look more refreshed and add to their absorbency! keep in mind, some mamas have said they have issues using a snappi with flannel although I never have.
Thank you for that! I received way too many receiving blankets and was thinking about re-purposing some of them to make patches or cover them completely. I just wasn't sure how well they would absorb. I don't mind pinning if the snappi doesn't hold and I would be using a cover anyway. Thanks for the pep talk!!
