I read about tie dyed prefolds somewhere but now I can't find the link. If you have any information I would love it.<br><br>
Also, in your experience if a toddler is in a snappied prefold with no cover does that work? Does baby take the snappie and pull it off? TIA

My DS hasn't removed a Snappi, although he does find it interesting. I do let him run around the house with a shirt and CPF occasionally, but wouldn't do pants or leave the house like that.

Do you mean where to *buy* tie dyed prefolds or how to make them?<br><br>
You can buy a kit at Wal-Mart or JoAnn that includes three colors of dye, squirt bottles, soda ash, etc...it has everything - for like $9.99.<br><br>
This is the best kind - DON'T use Rit - it sucks.<br><br>
There are great directions in the package on how to dye and get different patterns.<br><br>
It says it dyes 8 garments, but I was able to dye around 20 - since they were small. I'd say you can easily do 2 dozen CPFs, maybe even 3 (there are directions on watering down the dye to get pastels in the package).<br><br>
As for the snappi'd prefold - we do them all the time at home. DD has been able to unsnappi one side before, but that was only once. For the most part she leaves them alone.<br><br>
They do get wet on the outside, so if you don't want damp spots on the furniture, get a wool cover for around the house. We just let her go coverless and change her as soon as she pees in it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> That way we REALLY know when she pees! :LOL

The problem I have with a snappi prefold with no cover is that the snappi snags on things (couch, me) and my toddler gets stuck.<br><br>
I tie dyed a few prefolds the other day.... let's just say I need to work on my artistic skills. They aren't the greatest looking. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I don't want to use any more of my good prefolds but thought if I can pick up some used ones, I'll give it another try.
