I just made one!! I only sewed it into the back so it's a flap....I could technically tuck into the pocket, but the flat lays nicely in place also. I just put it on baby without taking a picture.....I am going to sew more up after lunch and will snap some pictures of those.

You're welcome for the pattern link! I've done these before and liked them. I didn't do them the way you did.
Let us know how the drying time is with some of them being tri-folded and sewn through.

Yes! Thank you so much! She has some great tutorials on there!!

I will update with drying time for sure! I am pretty sure they won't take any longer than my Elementals and definitely not as long as my Chelory AIOs.

I love her site! I'm super bummed that she isn't as active anymore
I used her conversion of the BaaBaaBaby fleece cover pattern to make some wool wraps and love them!

Wow those look great! I don't have any flips but if I did I'd ask my Mom who sews to make one for me.

Do you think the way the flat is folded will make it tougher to wash? The elemental just has two layers so when being washed there isn't a pocket for stuff to get caught. I just deteched the soaker on an OBGE and there was some gunk caught in the stitching.

Thanks! I will update after I wash them. I think they will be fine and I don't see anything becoming caught up, but will make sure to check that too!

I have these all washed/dried. I dry everything on low. It normally takes 2 - 80 minute cycles to dry what we use....cotton flats, NBGE, Geffen hemp. All of these that I made are dry right along with those. The Geffen hemp and hemp flat were still a little damp, but would hang dry overnight. I am very happy with them!

I am also loving the 4.0 that I sewed the flat into....It worked great on baby and washed/dried beautifully! I will be doing this to the rest of my pockets tomorrow!! I will take pictures of those and post too!

I LOVE this! You should try turning the 4.0's into a freetime style diaper but with natural fibers LOL You did an amazing job, and I think the wider coverage is much nicer!

Would love to see how the inserts sewn to pocket because I have tons of them I'd like to convert. Have you tried with PFs? Or will it be too bulky? I have bamboo terry, bamboo fleece and hemp, How many layers do you think it's the best combo?
