Thanks to Gina for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I have made some prefolds and think that they are much better than the Snugglebottoms diapers, even if you have to pin them. I used receiving blankets and then for the inside pad, two strips of regular bath towel, not really really thick towel, but 100%cotton, and another layer of the receiving blanket cut into a strip and then sewed it all together, and they are adorable and very absorbent. I'm planning on using these for my new baby in June with Air Rika's and Alexis snap ons. It sure will be cheaper than newborn prefolds or something similar to a smaller Snugglebottom diaper.
