Thanks to Stacy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Actually I originally used "Cyndiegrans" instructions, but then I modified them to my liking. I've only made 2 so far and I am currently testing the second one I made. I really would love to make them and sell them, but I don't think they're that good. I am still playing around with different designs, though.

When I modified the instructions I added more elastic, made it bigger, and did the center pad differently, and also added an attched liner for faster drying. I really didn't buy much fabric. I used an old receiving blanket, some of those really thin Gerber prefolds, some old towels, and I only bought a little bit of fabric which cost me $1.50 (it was in the scrap bin at the fabric store).

So if you can find fabric around the house you no longer need use that first, it will really save you money. Here's the URL for the instructions:
