Where do you buy...
the fabrics/materials for the diapers nad/or wipes you make? I am wanting to try my hand at a few things and wonder where to get the materials I keep reading these things are made of! I know where to get flannels but wonder about the other fabrics!

Re: Where do you buy...
Are you making them for yourself or for biz realated stuff?

I get my stuff locally or via yahoo groups or online stores. ;) If it's biz related and you are going to become licensed you can buy wholesale from the makers themselves.

Re: Where do you buy...
it would just be for myself - (I can't take on such an undertaking as making these! I used to sew clothes and such and sell on ebay and that took me a year to learn how to do it well... I can't take that much time again to learn how to sell stuff good enough to sell).. anyhow.. thanks for the tip with yahoo - I'll check that out...when you say locally, do you mean a fabric store??

I am mostly considering trying covers as the ones I have tried to date don't fit DS well.. :sadno: so I really should find out what they're usually made of... duh!!:blush:
also wonder about wipes... what are the best fabrics for them????

i love sherpa on my wipes! velour is nice and soft too but i really love sherpa, back it on a flannel print and they are really cute!

Re: Where do you buy...
my wipes are sherpa and cotton or flannel. I love how soft the sherpa is (that's normally the side I use on the bum) and it cleans up my ds' yucky poo nicely. You can also check out ebay...I got a really good deal on sherpa from there and you can get some PUL for good prices too. All of my diapers have at least some PUL in them...well the covers I mean, since I use pfs or fitteds and a cover. I have seen for the heavy-duty overnight ones that there can be 2 layers...good luck!!!
