Quick Flip?

Postby dawnsmummy » Sat Aug 29, 2009 8:41 pm

Right, I've just seen a Quick Flip for the first time ever :giggle: and I like the look of them. Are they made like this?

Excuse my amazing MS paint skills! :hohoho:
The black circles are poppers, the red squiggles are elastic.

Is that roughly how they're shaped when flat? I'm tempted to start hacking at my HUGE mountain of terry squares to try and make some :giggle:

Never seen a quick flip before but that is the basic pattern for nappies so it should work :wink:

On a quick flip, the two corner bits (bottom left and right) are still attached and they flip into the nappy.

Yep you should be able to do it with your terries - sew 2 together. You dont' need poppers either, a nippa will do the job!

Yeah, I think the most innovative thing about the QF is that there is hardly any wastage of fabric, it is still a square, very clever.

The only thing I didn't like about them was that they end up really bulky at the front because of all the layers. Then if you try to add applix to them too it ends up really thick.
