I think one of my problems is that even my widest zig-zag setting isn't very wide. The FOE didn't have much recovery either. I like the 2 prefitteds I made, but they were such a pitb, I can't bring myself to sew the other 10 prefolds I bought just for this purpose. So, any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
|I used 1" FOE(the kind Catherine raves about on the sewyourowndiapers group). Do they make it wider?|

|Could you do the inner elastic and then just zig-zig the entire edge if you don't have a serger?|
|Also, what size prefold would you use to make a newborn and a "small" diaper?|
