Question Where do you buy...

the fabrics/materials for the diapers nad/or wipes you make? I am wanting to try my hand at a few things and wonder where to get the materials I keep reading these things are made of! I know where to get flannels but wonder about the other fabrics!

TIA

Are you making them for yourself or for biz realated stuff?

I get my stuff locally or via yahoo groups or online stores. If it's biz related and you are going to become licensed you can buy wholesale from the makers themselves.

Re: Where do you buy...

it would just be for myself - (I can't take on such an undertaking as making these! I used to sew clothes and such and sell on ebay and that took me a year to learn how to do it well... I can't take that much time again to learn how to sell stuff good enough to sell).. anyhow.. thanks for the tip with yahoo - I'll check that out...when you say locally, do you mean a fabric store??

I am mostly considering trying covers as the ones I have tried to date don't fit DS well.. so I really should find out what they're usually made of... duh!!
also wonder about wipes... what are the best fabrics for them????
thanks!!!!

Re: Where do you buy...

my wipes are sherpa and cotton or flannel. I love how soft the sherpa is (that's normally the side I use on the bum) and it cleans up my ds' yucky poo nicely. You can also check out ebay...I got a really good deal on sherpa from there and you can get some PUL for good prices too. All of my diapers have at least some PUL in them...well the covers I mean, since I use pfs or fitteds and a cover. I have seen for the heavy-duty overnight ones that there can be 2 layers...good luck!!!
