 So I made some cloth trainers with PUL but today when she had them on her pants still got wet. What did I do wrong?

did you dry them on high heat to seal the holes in the pul after sewing??

 Also what were the layers you used to help absorb?

 I don't have a HIGH heat on my dryer, just NORMAL and lower settings.

I used 3 flannel and 2 terry

Maybe try and seal them with a hair blow dryer?

Are they PUL outer or did you put a print over? If you used a print what type of fabric is it?

Do they fit without gapping at the legs?

Did you use 100% polyester thread?

I put a cotton print over the PUL

They have elastic leg holes.

And I don't know about the thread. I just used all purpose.

The cotton print can possibly cause an issue, and all purpose thread is typically cotton covered polyester. I recommend using Guterman's thread. It is the only thread I use. Very high quality and 100% polyester.

Quoting luvmykaitygrace:
