what is the best material for them? I have a bunch of interlocking knit would that work. I have been thinking about making some, but have no idea what to use.

Re: making cloth wipes?

Old flannel or terry work great.I am using my super soft towel that doesn't match all my others and an old flannel sheet. One side is gonna be flannel and one terry. Post in craft chat for more ideas

I make some from flannel, some from terry cloth, and some are a combo of both. I like the combo ones. I also like mine to be double thickness. I used to turn/topstitch, but now I use my serger!

I wish I had looked here first. I thought I was being crafty and went to the fabric store to buy suede cloth for wipes. Purchased a yard and then realized that it is polyester.

My favorite are sherpa on one side and obv on the other. flannel/sherpa or flannel/terry are also nice. I like having one 'grabby' side and one soft.

I do like our sherpa/ OBV ones, I have lots of cotton knit with cotton velour. The cotton velour works better with age because it gets more grabby.

Re: making cloth wipes?

I have a few that are flannel and terry. I don't like them cause they are too thick. My favorite are the baby washclothes. So I guess I like french terry!

Re: making cloth wipes?

I like terry cloth ones. I've gotten the terry cloth from joann fabrics, and that works really well (they're not as thick as a regular towel terry cloth, but thicker than baby washclothes). I don't really like the flannel ones cuz they're too...mmm...stiff - it's harder to get in tiny baby cracks.
We've been using terry cloth ones (8" square w/serged edges) for over three years as baby wipes and family cloth.
