Thanks to Kellie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

>> have made some prefolds and think that they are much better than the Snugglebottoms diaper, even if you have to pin them. I used receiving blankets and then for the inside pad, two strips of regular bath towel<<

I made a contour diaper nearly the exact same way. I traced a Motherease Popolino diaper and used two small receiving blankets and an old terry towel. I sandwiched the terry in between the flannel receiving blankets and zig/zagged the whole thing. I could add snaps or velcro and elastic. They work great.....another prototype.
