Re: Has anyone made fitted out of the thirsties hemp prefolds?

I've been itching to try make some but haven't had a chance to pull out the sewing machine. This way you could keep those lovely pfs intact and use them later as inserts, doublers, etc if you wish, and also keep the resale value. You could even make the shell like a pocket fitted and stuff the pf inside.

I think a hemp jersey fitted would be awesome though!
That would be such a great idea! I didn't quite understand what you were meaning before but that so does make sense!

I might have to do a search online for some free patterns for fitted diapers or maybe someone on here knows of where we could get one. We could even use receiving blankets or cheap t-shirts that are old and not being used.
