I don't want the leg openings serged preferably.

Since this will only hold the inerts/flats/prefolds I am looking for something cheap, since I still have to invest in the other parts of the diaper.

I was thinking birdseye fabric for ease of cleaning, but am open to other ideas. Knit might be nice too since it will stretch to accommodate the inserts

I hope that makes sense, please pm with questions or interst
I've made several of these if what I'm thinking is what you're thinking I used 2 layers of knit so they could be snappi'd or pinned, and stretchy so they have a nice snug fit. Then I made my own inserts (you could use a washcloth, prefold, whatever) to lay in. I love them!
