I finally am getting aroud to cutting some of the flanel I've accumulated for baby burp pads. 1/3 yard has always been enough for 2 front, 2/3 for 4 and yard would give me 6.. The newest flannels from JoAnn's don't work. Most of them are now 41 inches wide with a printed selvage of an inch or more. In future I'll have my tape measure out checking how much is usable before buying. Problem seems to mosstly with their snuggle flannels and I don't need an inch printed selvage telling me that a pindot print is made exclusively for JoAnn's.
