Diapering_: Washcloths as doublers or diapers

Going through my linens, about to toss those ragged washcloths and towel, when it occurred to me that a washcloth is the right size for a doubler. Cut two layers of towel 1/3 the width of the washcloth and stitch to the middle of the washcloth using a zig zag stitch, like a prefold diaper.

To use: fold into thirds and place inside diaper for a five layers of terry, quick drying, super absorbant, free doubler. These can also be used as newborn diapers fastened with a snappi or just layed inside a wrap cover.

    Old worn washcloths are awesome as cloth wipes too. The older, the better, as they're softer.
