Re: "luxury" flats padfold photo comparison: bamboo, flip, and thirsties side by side

May be a silly question why would you unpick a Thirsties hemp prefolds?

Yes, I really should. AND my hemmed edge on the thirsties preflats. That friend is really, truly, an amazing sergeress. And possibly I should just invest in a serger and learn to both sew and serge. I know I'd love it if I could just set aside the time to learn properly.

There are some threads on this already and tutorials too, but basically it takes out the weird lump where there is an extra layer of fabric, it helps them wash even easier and dry even faster, and it makes them oodles more customizable. I can easily adjust the length now to longer than the original prefold would have let me.

I'm going to be serging mine soon. The hemmed edges drive me nuts and I'm not even using them yet. Lol!

I have my daughter do all my serging. Its the best of both worlds....I get stuff serged and I don't have to learn. Ha ha ha.

I recommend that you all have a 12 yr old daughter that can sew like a banchee.

Because it simply makes them the best! Then they're fully customizable - like a flat. They work padfolded in my 3 yr olds nite time diaper and stuffed in my 2 mo old fbos elite pockets. Very versatile. Very absorbant. PLUS.....they dry in under 50 minutes on medium heat. I haven't seen any other diaper that can pull this off.
