Just fold your flat up like a prefold and then jelly roll it. If your flat is a rectangle, fold in half length wise, then take one side and overlap the middle. Take the otherside and lap over the first side so you have a 6 layer center. Lay babe on and jellyroll away! I don't know how to do it on squares though. Guess folding the square in half would make a rectangle and then you could go from there!
