do you think it would work to turn them and top stitch? i have never made covers before and i would like to try. my plan is to use pul for the inside and a poly knit for the outside. any suggestions/advice/comments would be extremely helpful!!
It took me a while to get the hand of FOE on covers. I made my covers T & T style. You can definatley use the two layers. I do think it looks much neater but be careful with the elastic in the legs. I think have the PUL w/ elasic on the thighs can be a bit tighter then FOE.
Here is what I've used,
Crushed panne outter w/ PUL inner. THis is great because I embroider my crushed panne and I don't have to worry about sealing that. I alos love all the colors I can get at Joann's. (Crushed panne is also excellent for pocket diapers, It wicks very quickly)
I am also a MInky queen. I love minky. I also embroider or use the cute prints for my outter w/ PUL inner.
Or you can just do two layers of PUL...if you wanted to.
I hope this helps.
