Question how can I fancy up these pre-folds?

I have 4 ginormous ugly prefolds that I would like to use for changing pads. They are 17x20 with serged green edges and they are fairly pilly, but otherwise good condition. I want something nice and cute and girly for a changing pad, but still washable. Any suggestions? I thought about serging off the green stitching and then tie dying them pink and purple, but I've never dyed anything so I'm a little leary. Plus not sure that would be the cutest. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Dye any cute color and use a shaver on the pills.

I'd do them all different so you have a variety. Have fun with it!!

You can always embellish them with fabric after you have dyed them. Get some girly fabric and sew some down the middle or applique a swatch on. I have even taken ribbon and sewn bows on. Have fun! Show us what you come up with.
