I was cleaning out my sewing area today and I came across some really nice flannel that I was going to make blankets out of but never did. As I was folding it up, I thought hmmm, I wonder if this would work as a diaper. Anyone tried this? Do you think it would be absorbant enough?

recieving blankets make great diapers in a pinch. I imagine that would be a great flat!
