Can you use regular fleece for this pattern?
I am excited to try a pair. Thanks for the great pictures.

I don't really sew, so I bought the cheapest fleece I could find at Wal-Mart ($4.44/yd) in case they turned out horrible and made it with that. They work like a charm!

yeah i did, i just used wiltons just in case i made a mistake i could over dye it with something else.it came out nice, but next i wont try to dye a whole yard at one time.
i just got some more wool blend just the other day, and i tryin to find time to make some more longies.

btw i 1st dyed som loin brand wool, to make sure i had the process right befor i did the interlock

Here are a pair of wool blend interlock lonies I made. I need to buy more of that fabric. It's so nice and stretchy!

This relates to the question that I had- what kind of fleece can you buy at regular fabric stores that are suitable for longies? Everything that I've read recommends heavy weight fleece like Windpro, which I can only find online. I'd like to save money and get some locally if possible. DD is a pretty heavy wetter. We're actually having problems with wicking through Bummis covers, so I'm exploring some other cover options.

Thanks! The wool blend is wonderful. After the initial felting, it really doesn't seem to shrink again. My mom accidentally washed and dried a wool blend interlock soaker I have with the regular laundry. It came out looking like new, without shrinking. It did need lanolizing again, though. I also find the wool blend much easier to sew than fleece.

You can really use any kind of fleece you can find. I have mad quite a few diaper covers out of my daughters old fleece baby blankets.

I LOVE this pattern! I made 3 pairs of pants - 2 for DD, 1 for DS. The first pair I made I screwed up so I ended up sewing a little skirt around the pants which I really liked the look of. I think I got progressively better so when my wool blend gets here I'm set!!
