UPDATED! Pics in Show N Tell! I want to make a Flipplex (Simplip?)

I couldn't quit obsessing, so I did it!

A Flip/Simplex baby! LOL

I love the soaker style of the simplex, and adore the fit of flips. I want to make a OS AIO that fits like a flip and has an organic cotton inner set up like the sized Simplex (opening at front and back w/attached soaker that can be folded over or under).

My question is, can I get some cheap flip covers and sew in my own organic cotton? Or would it be better to start from scratch and just try to mimic the pattern/fit of the flip?

I have most of the supplies to do either, I just thought it might be easier if I could start with a mostly constructed diaper

What do you think?
