Talking Hooray for frugal (and trim!) diapering

12 Sams flour sack towels (12.74 for 12, $1.06 each)

Trimmed down to 26 x 32" (size after prepping 4 x's). I trimmed b/c I hated the binding. It didn't lay flat and rolled & wrinkled after washing. The flour sacks have been used for a week, still fold up in perfectly even, flat squares

Preemie prefold (1.00 from Cottonbabies) used as a doubler just in the front. I don't need a doubler for Noelle (11 months) but E (special needs 5 yo) has big boy pee

Econobum cover second (5.00 from Cottonbabies) No idea why the covers were seconds? We've been using them for over a year, elastic, snaps & PUL still look perfect. We can re-use the cover ~2 x's before it smells like urine.

Trim bootie, it is way trimmer then most cloth & even trimmer then Huggies Pull-ups. Most people think he's wearing undies at school.




In 12 month Target brand jeans. These don't fit with a sposie pull-up on.

Totally awesome, and I love the last pic!

Just curious, how did you finish the edge on the trimmed flats?

Narrow hem serged on my Babylock. I used a colored needle thread (brown for E and pink for N) so I know whose prefolds were whose. I trimmed N's down to 24 x 26 so I don't have to fold over making extra bulk. Wooly nylon in the loopers so I could just cut the threads & not worry about unraveling

That looks great! I should be getting a freebie Econobum from my Cottonbabies order and I can't wait. I really wish Econobum came in aplix so I could have a whole bunch of them. I am trying to stick to all aplix for ease of use others that frequently change the kids, but I just love the trimness and simple look of Econobum. When did you find that they fit your dd weight wise? I know it depends on baby's shape of course, but I'm wondering when they might fit our baby due next month.
