Arrow DIY Bamboo flats

I am thinking about trying to use bamboo fabric to make some flats for my 2mo.
I am curious if I could make them one-layer flats like the Little Lions or Diaper Junction flats?
I'm also wondering if I should use Bamboo Fleece or jersey or something else? (Or should I use hemp?)
And if it was a knit, would I even need to sew the edges or could I leave them raw?
Ideas?

Re: DIY Bamboo flats

I used to have some homemade bamboo jersey flats that were fantastic. You don't even really have to serge the edges if you don't want.

Right, the bamboo won't fray!
A lot of people love the bamboo hemp jersey. Fleece is the most popular though

Re: DIY Bamboo flats

I doubled up and did two layers of bamboo fleece. I just zigzagged the edges. It definitely doesn't have fray issues though.
