In my drug induced state last night I got really creative I guess :LOL but I thought I would share my breakthrough, feel free to copy! (that means you Dana <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">)<br><br>
I took some gerber prefolds I have from way back (DSQ's) that I hate since getting REAL ones. And some others that I got for the cost of shipping on the TP (they had holes in parts of them) and I cut them in three strips each (the seam line) and trimmed about 3-4 inches off the strips. I then took 'new' fabric and put it on both sides of the cut prefold and serged around all layers. VOILA I have new AWESOME doublers! I did some in knits, some in micro, some in sherpa (each side is different so I can pick from lots) Anyway a great use for old CPF's that have holes, are too small or just ucky (like the gerber ones suck as diapers but will make great doublers!) Some are thicker (the center strip is thicker of course) some are 8 layers plus the two, some are 6 plus the two some are 4 layers plus the two. They turned out super cute and what a way to recycle!<br><br>
Although I don't recommend operating a serger while on T3's it worked out well for me! (and I still have all my fingers -I think- I can still type anyway LOL) ~

I seriously think there is, you know most of the great creative minds in history, were alcohol or drug addicts! LOL we are on to something! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I need to write down my ideas for when I am done with the drugs! ;D

I've done the same thing with a few 'less than perfect' prefolds that I had laying around! I've been holding on to them for a while now, thinking I couldn't just throw them out. Then I was going through my fabric stash thinking 'hmmm... what could I use for soakers in these diapers I'm making?' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/idea.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="idea"><br><br>
I'm glad to hear I'm in good company. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
