So beyond the stupid dryer issues I'm having, my baby is sick. When he cries, he has this awful raspy cry. And he's stuffed up, so he's not napping well. So I've had a very clingy baby all day. Between the dryer and the baby, I'm emotionally drained.

I had ordered some Proraps to complete our medium cover stash. They came today. In my emotionally exhausted brain fogginess, I cut open the mailer without pushing things down first. So I wound up cutting a hole slightly smaller than a dime into the gusset of one of the covers. Just what I needed to go with the rest of my day!

Any tips on how I can fix this? Or does this just become an emergency use only cover?

Oh no! That sucks! I'm sooo sorry you're having a bad day mama!!

Maybe you can patch the whole... is there anything that you can use? You could also try bringing it together and sewing the whole shut (either with a sewing machine or by hand). It wont be the prettiest looking, but at least it'll work, right?

Again, *big hugs*

The hole is an actual hole, not just a slice. The fabric was folded, so a chunk came out of the diaper. I still have the chunk, and could possibly sew it back on, but I'm worried about all the resulting needle holes.

Maybe I could put a patch on with iron on fusible web. I just don't know what material to make the patch out of. Because the hole is in the gusset, I don't think I want to use just cotton. Any poo that gets out of the prefold could get out of the cover if I don't patch it well.
