Thanks to Michele for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I made my prefolds and absorbant liners from the 'Back to Basics' pattern from Born to Love .It was so easy. The cutting of the cloth was the worst part, it is really hard to fold the long pieces of flannel I had to use my rotery cutter.

My husband helped by folding the rectangle using a ruler! My diapers are perfectly staight!

I used red thread to sew the diapers, white for the absorbant liners and blue for the wipes I made with the leftover flannel. It really helps to sort laundry!
