I shaved WHAT?!

I am always looking for ways to save money and make things last – so it is no surprise that I ended up making my own cloth diaper liners out of a cheap Walmart fleece blanket. I traced a regular microfiber insert and made a pattern from it, and continued to cut out 30 fleece inserts. These act as a wicking agent and keeps your baby feeling dry – plus it is more comfortable on them 🙂

 

Something I noticed, though, was that the fleece ends up pilling after a while. I didn’t want to buy a new fleece blanket to cut up every few months so I found an alternative way to fix this “problem” and make them last much longer! Have you ever heard of a fabric shaver? I scored one at a discount store last year and decided to give it a shot. This bad boy has saved lots of my clothing as well as my cloth diaper liners. It is super easy to use and you empty it like a bagless vacuum.

Take a look at my before and after pictures:

It’s not perfect, but it makes a huge difference! I have also used my fabric shaver on my husband’s USMC fleece throw, and it looks brand new! Have you ever used one?
