Do these prefitteds look like they will fit an actual, human baby?

I may have actually figured out my perfect, no-serger prefitteds! I had some free prefolds to practice on, and I stayed up till 4 am last night. They will still dry in 1 dryer cycle with this method, which was my main concern when trying to convert pf's into fitteds. ALSO, thay have back elastic, which was actually quite easy!

Premium size:




Infant size (left is front snapping, right is side snapping):




The side snapping one isn't as good, but the front snapping ones (snaps not added yet) look really good inside various covers, and are a tad bulky but not more so than my Motherease diapers. I will save SO much if these are good enough to be my main stash!

Thanks to Bootyhunter for making me try again on these!!!

I am thinking of buying some 'regular' 4x6x4 prefolds... they will squish down better in the crotch due to fewer layers AND dry faster... I could easily add an extra layer of hemp to the doubler to make up for the lost absorbency.

Nice job! I wish I had seen this while I was still pregnant. (I don't have time to sew now.)

Beautiful! I did something like this recently! My only gripe is that I didn't do 3 dozen of them! Diaper rite bamboo prefolds are like $2 right now. If they're as great as their flats they would be dreamy!

WAIT- Titus2- where are these $2 DR bamboo prefolds? I only see them regular price. I would LOVE to make these out of super-soft bamboo if I can get a good deal.
