What I'm wondering......will the prefolds work decently as diapers or should I be expecting more of a "burp cloth" type of usage? CPF's are inexpensive and I certainly don't mind buying those as well. Just wondering what to expect from the homemade stuff.
I think its diapersewing.com that has directions. I'm running out the door so I don't have time to look it up but that is a good place to start.

We don't use them excusively, but they are fun in the rotation!
So people who've made hemp fleece prefolds, how many layers do you use in the center and sides? I hope that there is just ONE kind of hemp fleece. Mine is soft on one side, like sweatshirt material. The fleece shrinks more and more every time I wash it!
Any more advice on making prefolds would be great.

If you make the 4x8x4 t-shirt prefolds that I told you about, they will be as absorbent as 2 regular prefolds or a premium - definitely adequate for diapering. I usually double-diaper davey at night if we're using prefolds, but I don't have to with the t-shirt ones. One t-shirt prefold and a wool soaker go ALL night!
|IMO, it's more cost/time effective just to get some good quality prefolds online. I've made a prefold with the birdseye and between it being a pita, it was NOT as cost effective and not as good as the prefolds I ended up buying online|
I just have peices of hemp fleece, not a huge roll of it or something.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
