Make sure you use 100% polyester thread, as cotton will wick. Anytime you are working with PUL it is recommended to use ball point needles, but I've used regular needles at times and it's been okay. I think any kind of velcro will be fine, but some is stiffer and scratchier than others which can irritate baby's skin if it rubs against it. I find I have less of this if I sew very close to the edge, and/or use velcro that doesn't have a plastic-y edge on it.
You should throw it in the dryer on hot for 10 to 15 minutes when you're done to help seal the needle holes. Good luck!
