3 layers of microfiber in the middle and

flannel on the bottom

I'm using these in my Flips and gDiapers. Do you think 3 layers of microfiber is too much? Would 2 layers be fine? TIA!

  • I have no comment, but a question:  Where did you find the microfiber?  I would like to make some of my own soakers, but don't know where to start.

  • They look good, and I bet they're pretty absorbent.

    2 might be plenty, and keep it more flexible though.

    I've made inserts using microfiber towels from the auto section at Wal-Mart. Very cheap! 

    OP they look good! I like 3 layers, 2 is not enough for my LO.

    You can get them in the auto section of Walmart 8 for $5- those are a little smaller. They are 14x14. But the ones I used for the middle are from Costco. I want to say they were 36 for $16. They are  bigger, 16x16 and I just trifolded them and cut off 2in off the bottom and stitched them together so they wouldn't bunch when I stuffed them.

     Thanks ladies! I they are a decent thickness. I was going to try to cut that down a little. I'll have to try 2 layers and see how that works for day time use. I was also thinking of just doing 3 layers in the front only and cutting the back part down in thickness to one or 2 layers since it only really needs to "catch" there not absorb.

    Well I know 2 definately wouldn't work for nighttime. He has a fluffy butt at night-I stuff with 2 of them and they are heavy in the morning. LOL.

  • Thanks for the tips!  I like the idea of putting a dry layer on top and flannel on the bottom.

  • late question for this post. I need something for my gdipes. Where did you get the fleece and flannel? I looked at Joann's and the fleece seemed so thick!
