What materials and where to buy for dipes?

I am new to sewing and cloth so of course I want to sew my own! I am fortunate that someone passed on some instructions on how to make a fitted with flannel already cut in the shape needed and will probably start there. I have also gleaned from reading here I should make the first one (or few) out of old material until I get the hang of it. But once I do, and assuming I make something decent, I also want to make pockets and AIO's. There are so many options on material out there and was wondering what was recommended and where to get it.

I know I want to make hemp or bamboo inserts too so want to get that material as well (but am not sure about hemp fleece or terry or whatnot).

I've only made pockets myself, using mostly PUL and microfleece. Here's where I bought them:

Good luck!

I have seen that but forgot about them, thank you. Nature's Fabric seems to be recommended as well.
