How many OS diapers per yard?

Can someone help me please?

How many diaper cuts can I get from one yard? I have heard 4 but does that mean if it's folded in half it's really 8? I just want to make sure I buy enough fabric!

Thanks a LOT!!!

My OS diapers measure around 21 x 19 unsewn. So I can get around 4 from fabric that is 44/45 and 5 or 6 from fabric that is 60.

I make RRPs and can get four cuts out of a yard. (You can either make two diapers with that or if it's cute, get something else for the inner and use all your cute fabric on the outer! ) Sometimes the fabric store people don't cut a full yard but you can still get four cuts, they'll be just a bit shorter on the wings.

Thank you all so much!! I guess I will have to get more fabric than anticipated!

I have 8 diaper cuts that I just got today

I was going to make them as follows

Outer Knit
hidden 1 layer bamboo fleece
inner velour

with a trifold soaker that was 1 layer bamboo fleece topped with velour

So I should buy 4 yards of BF and 4 yards of velour right?

I might just embelish prefolds
