Help me out with my big idea!

Postby BekkiLB » Wed Jul 02, 2014 9:31 pm

I'm full of big ideas at the moment so need your help to get started on one. I'm wanting to convert my prefolds into all in ones and I think I've figures out how ill do that, however I'm thinking of tie dying them but not sure how I can do that/what material I can use for waterproofing that will also catch the dye!

In terms of waterproofing, the options are PUL, fleece and wool. Fleece and PUL won't dye, but wool would. So I would think that wool interlock would be your best bet. :)

ETA: Although it's an expensive option for prefolds!

OH had some old white tshirts he was going to bin so think I'll use them (tie dyed) and cover the PUL with that! Hopefully this will work as I've seen some nice cotton prints also! I may soon have 15 "new" nappies!! How exciting! Next, I'll be replacing all the microfiber inserts that I can't get un-stinky for the life of me! X
