I have tried with a snappi, and I can't get it to work

I've seen it on the Fern and Faerie frugal diaper sewing web site, and she used pieces of an old sweatshirt for the "snappi patches" on the examples.
Hmm. CV is snappiable, right? Maybe I'll just add a strip of CV.

I would do the square patching, just press the edges and do a straight stitch around, then stitch them onto the prefolds, you could even do some cute embelishing like a hearts, or something, that would be too cute!!! *Ideas* Now I want to do that! I would just do fleece for the patches, you wont need to press it, just stich it on. Since it's synthetic it wont fray, and fleece is snappiable!
