Sewing PUL

Quick question, do you sew the pul on the top or on the bottom?

the shiny side goes to where you want the waterproofing to be. If its a wrap then shiny side in, cotton side out. if its a pocket nappy then inner layer like fleece, shiny side then cotton side out. wetbag, shiny side in etc etc

Thanks I hadn't even thought of that, buy when your sewing on the machine does the pul go up wards or on the bottom or doesn't it matter.

Changing mats, I would put the cotton side up so its softer on babys skin, if they pee, the cotton soaks it up but stops whats underneath getting wet ;)

Sounds good to me :) make sure the cotton side is on the outside, and the shiny side in on the inner and all will be fine :)

It is easier to keep everything from slipping if the shiny side is on your feed dogs. If the project you're working on makes it so that isn't possible a walking foot is helpful as is using tissue paper on top of your fabric as you sew. You just tear the tissue paper off when you're done. Sewing PUL can be a PITA, as it's so slippery so go slow and maybe practice on some scraps :) GL!
