Everything in our lives is part of schooling right? I'm participating in the Dirty Diaper Laundry flats and handwashing challenge. For more info click the button.
I'm making most of my flats. I'm buying a dozen Gerber ones that I can use as super thin ones doubling in prefolds, etc. I'm making the rest from flannel (order from JoAnn's today with code FREE25 and get free shipping on orders over $25) and hemp fleece that I've been saving for a while. I was going to use the hemp fleece as inserts but I think it will be better suited this way and I will get longer use out of it.
I already cut some white flannel with stars on it as 21"x27" (4 of those) and 6 hemp fleece 27"x27". The hemp fleece is thick so I don't think I'll be able to fold it small to use as a normal insert but the flannel should work if we want to use it in pockets. I plan to take a bunch of these and PUL covers with us when we go on our trip to Oregon so I can wash them out and dry them overnight rather than taking a big bulk of diapers or using disposables (and potentially having blowouts). I plan to blog about my experience :)!
