Modified Thirsties Prefold (with pictures)

We LOVE Thirsties prefolds and used them trifolded in Flips with our first daughter. I don't like trifolding with DD2 but I didn't want to sell off my beloved Thirsties prefolds so I modified them to work for us


I just used a seam ripper and ripped the seam out so it's one big piece:

And fold it up like this:

Then like this:

And then boingo, snappi, or pin on:


Now I love them again!

I also detached all of our BGE's to free the soaker in the front. I guess you could say I'm not afraid to hack up a diaper to make it perfect for us

I agree love the pudge!
So it's one layer now? Like a flat?

No, it's still 2 layers, just one long piece instead of the loop
