This is a traditional fold for a flat diaper, likely your great-grandmother used a fold like this with pins and a wool diaper cover. Flat diapers are a little more difficult to use, but they are fast to wash and dry, cheap to buy and they fit from birth to potty-training. That is a lot to say for a simple square of cloth.

Start with the diaper laid out flat in front of you with one corner towards you (like a baseball diamond!).
