I am making some upcycled and new prefolds, so in an experiment I decided to try something new, I bought 100% cotton quilt batting to put as the soakers in the middle, I figured it might save on fabric and wanted to see how absorbent it was. So when I went to wash my materials I threw it in thinking I should preshrink it.. Well I just transferred it all to the dryer and I have teeny tiny little bits of quilt batting all over EVERYTHING and my batting is shredded Ugg.. It sucks. For anyone that dosen't know what I am talking about this is the product
Warm Tater 100% Cotton Quilt Batting by the Makers of Warm and Natural

I bought some bamboo/cotton quilt batting a couple years ago and it didn't come out of the wash too pretty If I did it again, I'd stuff it in a mesh laundry bag for laundring.

You have to hand wash it to preshrink, usually each bag will have brand specific directions. Better luck next time!

I bought it off the big roll at the fabric store...
I just did without and made some really cute prefolds, and some boring ones too..


I also made some out of upcycled flats that I accidentally bought, I thought I was buying prefolds from her because that is what she said she was selling, didn't look in the bag when I got them , got home and went "Darn, WTH am I going to do with these" When I went to the fabric store the printed flannel was cheaper then the diaper flannel and it was 60 inches as opposed to 30inchs..
