I've been cutting up old flannel shirts for diapers and have found that there are a ton of things hiding in an old shirt.
Here's how I've been using them:
* The back: Flat diapers. Tthe backs are probably big enough for fitted diapers, too.
* Two front panels: Stripes for the backs of prefold diapers. A beautiful black and white plaid was used on the diaper in the photo.
* Sleeves: Soakers, an extra few layers on top of the diaper for absorption. I've been sewing old T-shirts inside.
* Scraps: Wipes, handkerchiefs, etc.
I'm getting better at fully utilizing all of the fabric in the shirts, which is good because flannel is so wonderfully soft and absorbent!
