There were 2 with the free one, I cut the fabric using the larger one since my last 3 babies were in the 10 pound range. It did seem huge but the elastic really made it much smaller.

See I don't see a huge difference in the two. I haven't cut them up all the way yet. But that's good to know the elastic shrinks it up. One more question...did you just do two layers on the outer part?

Yes, only 2 layers. Its main function is to be the elastic, the soaker will do the work absorbing. But there were no instructions and it was my first fitted so I don't know if that's how its "supposed" to work. It sure dries quickly!

thank you SO much for the offer! I did post an ISO for snaps a couple days ago and a mama responded and is going to mail me some to finish it off.

I do however, need a very small quantity of dark and light purple snaps...got any of those laying around?
