I took a recieving blanket, folded it into 4ths, sewed around the perimeter, then took a strip of fleece and sewed that down the center. That gave me inserts that were approx 14x14, with 12 layers of flannel when trifolded, but then they open up into a square of only 4 layers (plus one of fleece down the center) so they wash/dry well. I love them! I got soo tired of always having to add a fleece liner to all my trifolded PFs. They work great from about 12-18 months old up to 3+ years. For smaller babies, you could do the same thing, just trim the blankets down a bit before sewing then serge or zigzag the edges. My 14x14s were made with 30x30 RB (new measurements). Just thought I'd share.
Great idea.
