Master Flat Fold Table

I am having so much fun trying out new flat folds. How about you? I was hoping I could get your help on this project I am working on. Here is a list of folds I have found with tutorials. If you want to, go ahead and try a few out and let me know how you feel about the fold by filling out the survey found here.
If there are more flat fold tutorials that you know about for a different fold, let me know. Also, I am currently running a FLAT FOLD INVENTION competition and the winner gets a Zabi Babi Bamboo Flat. I am hoping this will turn into a very helpful table for flat addicts. Happy folding!
If you see a correction I need to make in # layers or where maximum layers is located, let me know.
Diaper Fold # of layers* Where maximum # of layers is located Score
Diaper Bag Fold 12 Front
Origami Fold 8 Same throughout
Kite Fold 4 Front
Pad Fold 12 Same throughout
Airplane Fold 16 Front
Bat Fold 8 Same throughout
Maria’s fold for boys 6 Front
Neat Fold 4 Same throughout
Jo’s Fold 6 Same throughout
Gaynor’s Fold for Girls 9 Middle
Twist Fold 6 Middle
Ro Fold 8 Front
Corners Fold 5 Front
Triangle Fold 2 Same throughout
V Fold 6 Middle
* In the videos for many of these a very large flat was used and folded into fours. From what I understand, a lot of the flats we have sold in the US are smaller, which means we could probably fold each side in by about a few inches and that would give extra layers, but overall the number of layers would be fewer than that shown in the video.


  1. I'm new to flats but I thought I'd heard that the Bat fold and Origami fold are the same thing.

    I am so excited about your putting this together. I'm hoping to have flats be my main daytime diaper and I have so much to learn. I'm hoping there are some good girl folds too... that is w/o having to add a doubler. =)

  2. Yeah it is the same end result...with a little different technique for getting there.

  3. Love the table! Here's a possible correction - it looks to me like there are only 12 layers max in the diaper bag fold, since it's basically 4 layers trifolded in the front, unless I'm missing something? Can't wait to try out the other folds you listed!
