Okay I'm kinda new to cloth diapering and wanted to make some pocket diapers. I have everything for the inserts and the PUL fabric for the outer, but what fabric do you suggest for the lining the inside of the diaper (the fabric that will touch baby's skin)?

Also if I were to sandwich PUL fabric between the lining and a decorative cotton outer would it work the same as using PUL on the outside? I bought plain white PUL since its cheaper than the cute decorative stuff and wanted to get the cute outer look and I was hoping it would work!

Thanks to alethia for my super cute siggy!

I use microfleece (not the same as microfiber). It's similar to polar fleece but thinner. I actually got mine at Walmart - they sell microfleece blanket kits, that you're supposed to cut and tie around the edges, but hey, it said "microfleece" and at $12.50 for I think 3-4 yards of fabric, it was a good deal.

For cotton outside the PUL design question, I've never done it, but I'm an amateur compared to many on this board. I think it can be done, but it might be prone to wetness wicking to the outside material through the seams. Hopefully someone with more knowledge and experience can help you more with that one!

Thanks for the reply! I'm kind of amateur so maybe I'm biting off more than I can chew! Lol. I've only been sewing for a year and a half and never made a diaper before lol
