PUL at Joann?
Apparently they did the laminate wrong on the print PUL and they are aware of it. Lots of my covers and pockets are shiny side out - so I'm going to use the print stuff anyway. I don't care if the brighter side of the design is on the inside instead of the outside.
I have had some delamination on the red PUL. Went through the dryer on medium (thanks husband!) The following diaper brands survived medium heat: bum genius 2.0; fuzzibunz, kawaii; pocket change, katydid. Jo-annes PUL did not :-(
I am glad I only made 4 dipes from it :-( I might make more though, just cause the red is so darn cute.
I've had major issues with the PUL from Joann's....and the flannel. I just can't seem to find quality fabrics through them that will stand up to the repeated washes. So I started a fabric co-op and shop! :) Problem solved.
I haven't had any problems yet with the PUL from Joann's but I've only ever gotten the pastel colors, and I've only ever used them for wet bags or as a liner for a changing pad that I've been making for friend's baby showers.
A cute use for the fabric with the wrong side laminated would be a child's raincoat or poncho.
My White PUL from Joann's totally delaminated. It's not from hot or warm washes. There was a problem with that PUL. PUL was made for the medical industry originally, so it was made to withstand high heat washings to kill bacteria and germs. Joann's has a new line of PUL and diaper making supples called Babyville Boutique. I love it. I was part of the testing team on this product. I love that there is a bigger selection of PUL Prints and for mama's who never knew they could sew their own, they now have a place to shop locally.
I bought some JoAnn's Babyville Boutique bold colored PUL (blue, green, red) and made some diapers for a kid I babysit. I am super disappointed that the colors have faded so much in the 4months since I made them. Since she only wears them at my house I know it is not from washing them wrong or too often. I don't know if the pastel colors or patterns have this same issue, but I don't think I will be buying any more PUL from JoAnns any time soon.
I just had a BIG piece of red PUL from Joann's delaminate.
This doesn't happen with most PUL, right? I've washed so many diapers 100s of times and never had this happen. But I'm selling some mattress protector pads now, that I'm making, and I would be horrified if the PUL came apart after I had sold them!
Luckily, I kept the only one I made with PUL from Joann's.
