I am trying to sew a diaper for my daughter for 4th of July. Can this be used on the outer part http://m.joann.com/holiday-inspirations-patriotic-fabric-patriotic-hello-kitty/zprd_12267274a/ and have hidden pul behind that? I read on a google tutorial that it could work, just want opinions cause I bought this fabric a month ago and would hate if I couldnt use it.
Watch this video on Youtube for a way to keep the cotton woven fabric from wicking wet to the outside of the diaper. I have also just made binding from the PUL cutting it 1 1/4" wide and folding it like FOE. That seems to help also.
It can be used as an outer, but it will most likely wick.
I have also sewn cotton outers by cutting the cotton narrower in the wet zone and folding it down on the front, then turning it under and topstitching it to a layer of PUL. That way the cotton woven is not in the seams around the legs and at the front. Then I use a second layer of PUL as the wipe out inner for my covers. I use a ballpoint needle and wash it, then dry on hot heat for 20 to 30 minutes to seal the holes in the outside PUL. When I do this method, I still turn and topstitch my diapers. I've not had any wicking from them.
