Re: Cotton PUL for diapers?

She bought it on ebay, and it was listed as PUL for diapers. When I told her to email the person and tell her it delaminated after 2 washes and is no good for diapers, she did, and the person said she would take it back (less postage). She also said she has used it before for diapers and had no issues. I have no idea what she could be talking about, I have never even seen diapers with cotton PUL before! Oh well, it was an experiment, just annoying that I am the one who has to pay for it!

You can use good cotton PUL for diapers, but you'll need to add regular PUL to the leg area so it won't wick.

I'm not even going to try again! It delaminated after 2 washes so I am guessing it was not a good quality PUL. I really did not want to make this diaper, but my friend bought the fabric and asked me to do it, she wanted me to do 4 of them! I just did one and told her to try it first, and thank goodness I did, otherwise it would have been a complete waste of all my time and supplies.
