How do I fold a dish towel on a newborn?

So it finally sunk in. Using cheap T towels or dish towels for newborn prefold/flats. I have some ikea thin dish towels. I just checked the saturated absorbancy and it's about 7.5-8oz which is more than fine for a newborn (joey bunz small hemp is 4oz from my tests).

This especially makes since for me since we have plenty of infant prefolds and probably only need the smaller size for a few weeks.

But how would i attached it? It's much bigger than a newborn prefold and it's not square for a flat. Should I cut and hem it into a square? what would you do?

Mom to LO#1 born 1/7/2010 (Cloth diapered since day 1; Part-time EC since 9 months; Daytime PL since 29 months; Nightime PL at 5.5 years) & LO#2 born 12/1/2013 (First diaper was cloth! Part-time EC since 12 months & Daytime PL at 26 months) Checkout my absorbency tests. Thoughts on how long a cloth diaper REALLY lasts. Thoughts on Yeast , here, here, here & here.
