When purchasing the diapers, you want the 3 ply prefold, not the 6 ply, way too thick! Walmart is the cheapest source.
|Measure length and add 2 inches to that.|
Measure the width of the center thick portion and add 1 inch to that.
|Fold over 1/2 inch on each side along the length and press flat.|
Stitch just to the left of the diaper hem, maybe 1/4 inch in. You can see it is kind of lined up with the edge of the zipper foot.
|Here you can see what I mean about the slack. This is correct.|
|Now you will flip it right side out, which will fold the ends that you just stitched under the back of the diaper/burp cloth.|
|Now flip back over to the front and pin then stitch the lengths, just inside the edge of the fabric.|
