Suedecloth?

Is that what the top layer of a flip stay dry insert is called? I want to buy a yard or two to make some custom shaped stay dry liners to put in overnight and "long drives" diapers. I live the wicking that the flip stay dry inserts do (and the BG 4.0s), but they are so darn wide! My poor little DD looks like she's walking like a cowboy. I'd love to get a yard or two and just cut the perfect shape for her instead of messing with bulky/wide inserts.

Also, do these liners tend to fray at all if you cut them yourself? Does it help to have them surged?

Yep, also called alova. No fraying, just cut them out.

Re: Suedecloth?

Cotton Babies sells stay dry socks. I think they are about $2.99 each. They are that same suedecloth cut into a sock. It has one open end that folds over to close it after you stuff it. I have a ton of them here & they are great to make everything stay dry.

I also really like the Motherease stay dry absorbent liners. They are an athletic type stay dry material that is my favorite stay dry material. Sew Crafty Baby sells those & has the best prices I've found on them.

You can get get micro fleece from your local JoAnn's. Make sure to get micro fleece as the thicker stuff repels. But you don't need to sew it or anything - just cut it up. It works great!
