Here's the baby blanket fitted
, version 2, with snaps. This diaper has a franken soaker that was sewn to the wrong side of the inside body piece, and I gave up (this was the 2nd big mistake with the soaker) and decided to leave it as is. The edges are soft.
The soaker is mostly made of 2 layers of baby blanket flannel, although it's one layer on the back corners (I was using scraps). The front has 4 layers for the wet zone.
And here's the cover

Oh, and the VB
fitted worked beautifully overnight!!!! I could have just used it alone as a nighttime diaper. The front half was soaked, as was the preemie prefold, but the back half (even the soaker!) was completely dry. Woohoo! And this is SO much trimmer and easier to put on than a regular sized prefold doubled with a preemie prefold. I've actually been doing that combo even when we're out somewhere (surprisingly, it pretty much fits under jeans - I use the bikini twist fold), but if he's being uncooperative, I get nervous that someone is going to see and ask why I'm going through so much trouble, KWIM? I like to use easy-to-use stuff when out and about to show off cloth and how it's not just pins and plastic pants anymore (unless you WANT to use pins and plastic pants, of course
