Turning bedsheets into flats?

Would they be as absorbant as store bought flats?

What size--I was thinking 24" squares for newbies and 28" squares for older babies???

It totally depends on the sheets. Do some absorbency testing to make sure you've got a fabric that will hold what you need it to!

Flannel sheets or a knit tshirt material could be used if it's 100% cotton. Regular woven cotton isn't going to be very absorbent I don't think.
