Re: Alva stealing prints?

The swaddlebees print is a Michael Miller fabric, carnival bloom...so not JUST for Swaddlebees

Well that's good to know! I still wonder about the lovelace though.

I see a couple of swaddlebees circle prints as well as kushies prints in the new prints section too. Hmm

I have indeed seen fabrics-by-the-yard that have been used on popular diapers.

Re: Alva stealing prints?

WOW! I was thinking it would be similar but obvious where it came from. I didn't think it would be the SAME fabric. Also, the carnival bloom from swaddlebees! I've seen it in Minky, but I don't think I've seen it on PUL. It's sad that those diapers are only $5.69 and BG's are basically $20 more here. I have a few sunbaby dipes and wanted (still kind of want to) try out some Alva's as my pricy BG's need replacing. I feel horrible, but I kind of want both those prints now I will try and find a lovelace on the FSOT since I can't justify spending full price on a BG these days though. I prefer the aplix

This is something I kind of struggle with. They have grovia prints too. I think it's lame...why bother when there are an infinite number of possibilities with a unique print?

Wow! That lovelace looks bizarre without the pretty bg snaps! I think they can do whatever they want since they're in China, but they definitely don't get any business from me. I've gotten a couple China dipes in trades and had nothing but problems with them, so I'm more than happy to spend a lot more for quality diapers with those prints.

Actually it is. Seaddlebees has it licensed for diaper use in pul only until the end of this year. When MM released their new pul line earlier this year, I couldn't purchase it because I make diapers. I actually spoke to swaddlebees on this subject. Now if someone had lied saying they don't make diapers with it, then they probably get away with it. Now if they are using the cotton version of it, then it makes a difference. Especially if they purchase it as a cotton knit, and then have someone else laminate it.

I say this going by my experience on homemade clothing, not cloth diapers as my baby isn't here yet. But just remember.....although it is the same fabric doesn't mean it is the same workmanship, so I wouldn't go too crazy with the Alvas for the print.
