FLATS... Picture tutorial

Hi there!

I'm getting the hang of flats and thought I'd post some pictures. These are flats I bought from www.KeenBambino.com I use the origami fold on my 3 month old and the kite fold with origami laid on top for my 2-year old son.

I think this video shows the origami fold the best so I'm going to take a short cut and post that one and then my own pictures for the rest.

Kite fold:









Now I lay the origami on top:


Fold sides in...




flare out the ends a little:


Fold up and close wings



you can then snappi or pin. With the origami alone on my dd I roll the sides in to make gussets and just tie the long wings into a loose knot and throw a cover on and I have never had it come undone or leak.

I'll try to get action shots in the future.

Heyyyy that's an AWESOME way to fold flats. I would have never though to put the origami INSIDE the kite... I can see this being much trimmer than what I normally do. hmmmm... off to go test it out on my little model.

Hehe, when I was uploading pix I was thinking, "man, this looks like a lot of work!", but it's not! Oh and the flats also make good pocket stuffing and dry lightning fast and are cheap! So even if you don't use them like this they still are a nice item to have in the stash for other things. They are also the original OS dipe
