I just bought a bummis nb cover and the store only had white left. Do you think I could dye it a cute colour?

you could try. several of our PUL diapers have stains on the outside from food falling on them. Im not sure it would dye as well as other materials but it should hold at least a pastel.

Most pul is made from polyester fabric so regular dyes don't work well. I have done fabric painting though, that worked well, or if you can get acid dye, it will work on polyester.
