Re: "value" prefold fittted?

I would love to find some good prefold fitteds other than GMD. I just ordered some from them but their shipping costs are a little high so thats kind of a bummer. On the wool wraps note...YES YES YES!!! I love wool wraps. I have two from etsy shops that I absolutely love. I like wool soakers...but LOVE wool wrap soakers! I say you go for both!

Re: "value" prefold fittted?

Just adding that I like closureless prefitteds, too. I have a couple made from BabyKicks toddler size hemp PFs. I fold the front rise down. Whoever made them added extra fabric to the rear wings so they are plenty wide. They're really nice!

Re: "value" prefold fittted?

The pre-fitteds are pretty easy to make. I have done a couple for my DD. Some of them I even use old flannel blankets to make them "pretty". To make them one size- you will most likely have to extend the wings. Which isn't that hard to do. **Before I made my pre-fitteds, I never touched a sewing machine before- but had my mom there to help me**

One thing you have to remember, after sewing about 7 prefitteds- you should change out your needle. The pre-folds are thick so it wears your needle out faster. Do you have a serger? I assume they would be easier to make with a serger, but I don't have one.

ETA: I would spend $8 for a one size pre-fitted before I started making my own.
