They are not perfect, I just zig zagged the edges but they are so much softer.
oops... I meant to type flannel

I made flannel/terrycloth wipes, and we like them a lot. We also use them in the diapers if DS is leaking poop (what can I say, I like my diapers to stay white!), or if we need more absorbancy.

And yes, I just went to JoAnns for the material. Seems to be good quality, they're holding up just fine!

I buy wash cloths and use them. Wayyy less work than making your own. I buy the good quality washcloths though b/c the cheap ones are thin and scratchy.

I bought microfiber towels from Costco, cut them into quarters (they were 16x16, so each wipe is now 8x8), surged the edges, and for less than $10 I have 96 wipes so I will never run out! The do a nice job, too.

I thought you weren't supposed to keep those next to baby's skin. I din't think you could use them as wipes, but I guess if they're wet, it won't matter.
