I have 2 yds of bamboo terry which is going to be turned into inserts to replace Kaiden's hemp ones - those got weakened when I tried to strip them with washing soda, and now are pretty shredded. Still very absorbant, just very . . . not pretty

What I had done with 2 yds of hemp french terry was 3 layers sewed down in a rectangle shape. While they are nice and absorbant . . . they take forever to dry on a clothesline . . . and summer's coming up so I'll be using that again . . .

I'm in debate. Should I do the same thing, or should I make them bigger, so I can trifold them? And if I do that, how many layers should I make them?

Right now I wrap the hemp insert around a MF cloth that's been quad-folded (walmart cheap auto cloths) and I don't want to go bulkier . . . I think the MF cloths are about at the end of their life so it would be nice if I could ditch them altogether and just use ONE insert . . .

I can't decide . . . which is why that fabric has been sitting here for awhile

I would consider making one or two at the larger size and see what you think of those before you commit to one or the other. The larger size sounds good to me, but I'm still pretty new to this!
