How do you make your favorite cloth wipes?

With baby #1 I just cut myself some squares of flannel and zig-zagged around the edges (or had MIL serge around the edges...though honestly, I like the zig-zag ones better). Now...awaiting the arrival of #3, I'm thinking of making some different ones. So, the question is...what do you like to use for cloth wipes? What fabrics, how many layers, etc?

I bought flannel and towel material (terry i think) from the fabric store, i turned and top stitch them together to make little wash cloths essentially. Used them for 3 years, love 'em.

Two layers flannel, turned and top stiched or serged. Lots of cute flannel prints!

My favorites are old denim (DH's worn-out jeans) on one side and terry on the other. I used to T&T, and even quilt them a bit, but now I just serge the edges.

Another up cycled version: one side is an old bath towel and the other is a receiving blanket. Cut into 5 inch squares, surge edges or sew around, turn and top stitch.
