Hmmm I think there is a pattern you can use to make them into nappies...

Ours are used as nappy mat covers, nappy off time mopup cloths, seat pads, mopping up sick, mopping up spills (sense a theme here? ;) :giggle: )...

Could you sew them together with a PUL backing to make a bed-pad for night-time accidents?

thanks louise hun, but i own about 60 tots etc, so no need for fitted nappies. i'm liking the idea of lining them though, maybe for things like under lo's head in a moses basket or carrycot, i'm hoping someone yells that they need some, some are frigging hooge! :shock:

It saved on a lot of sheet washing!

Are they cotton or bamboo? I don't need loads but am looking for relatively cheap inserts atm as I seem to have far too many nappies without inserts! What make are they?

Burp cloths :) You can make pretty ones with scraps of fabric. There's lots of tuts online but you basically just sew some nice fabric over the middle 'pad' and then use them with the other sides folded under :)

Today I used one for 'out of bath stepping on to' lol, it was left there from when I carried my undressed lo into the bathroom, I wrap them round her bum for the 'journey' and there it was in the space of the absent bath mat that was in the wash

What about on cold changing mats or to put on those horrible changing tables when out and about, and all there other uses of course!
