Re: My review of the new Flip daytime inserts/flats *added pics!*

Honestly I don't think you will find you save much if anything. Organic knit fabrics like that are expensive. Then you have to deal with cutting and sewing it all. If you aren't super familiar with serging knit fabrics it can be a PITA when you first start out to get it to lay flat - that takes practice. I am former diaper sewing WAHM and totally capable of serging a bunch of flats but it never crossed my mind to bother because it is unlikely to save anything.

If you just want flats and to need to save money, regular birdseye are great too but definitely not the same thing. It is like comparing apples and oranges. The WAHM flats I have seen like this in the past were about $10/each and frankly with fabric prices they probably barely made a profit even IF they paid bulk wholesale prices for fabric. I have absolutely no problem with the price of these. I paid less than $200 for a stash of 24 OS diaper changes and they are made with the same awesome organic inner fabric as a BGE Personally I think that is really frugal and exciting!

If you bought that fabric from Nature s fabrics, after paying shipping you would save $1 on a 3 pack of flats plus you would have to make them. You wouldn't save anything over a daypack.

Thanks for doing the math for me! I was thinking I would have a massive savings. I have some Birdseye flats & they are ok but not nearly as awesome as flip!!!!

Alright, alright, you convinced me to get a 3-pack! GAH! I hope I don't love them. I have enough imagine bamboo flats and blueberry bamboo flats once they get the edges reserged... but I just *had* to try these too.

They are stocked at Abby's Lane!

BTW, has anyone tried these? I think I'm going to save up my swag bucks for some amazon gift cards and try them too...

Did you get them? I ordered a 3 pack already as soon as the notification popped on Facebook. Yes, I am a dweeb. I get notifications when 2 of my fave sellers post on FB.

I now have 9 OTW.
