I got my Hancock Fabrics ad yesterday, and just this morning noticed that they have PUL listed!! It's a new product, on sale for 8.39/yd until March 18th!!!! I haven't checked it out yet, but I probably will be as soon as possible, because this gives instant gratification and there's NO SHIPPING. ::

You should all check it out!!

I got some of this. My store only had white. It's 60 inches wide too so I got more than I was expecting.

One more reason I'm sad that the nearest Hancocks closed down.

I went to Hancock's for the first time yesterday (it's 2½ hours away), and they had PUL there, but only had white and blue. It's a start though!

They only have white, but you can put another layer of fabric OVER the PUL, can't you?

Yes, you can! An easy way to spiff it up a little.

Yep I plan to do hidden PUL. Mostly because I don't want the insert to show through the white PUL.

I'm not really sure because I never read Hancock's email they send me lol. Flannel is half off at Joann right now though so with that and the PUL I plan to stock up on diaper making materials.

If you sign up for their preferred customer program, you get a 40% off a fabric cut coupon with every mailer they send you, and usually another coupon for X% off something else, within certain dates. For example, the current mailer has a coupon for an additional 10% off your purchase between Mar. 15 & Mar. 17. I haven't bought fabric at full price there for ages.

Anyone tried it yet? The online description doesn't say much, and I haven't been able to make it to the closest Hancocks.

I managed to make it to the Hancock's today, and they had no idea what PUL was! The sign was up and everything, but no PUL in sight, just diaper flannel.

Oh well. I may try again, but it's really out of the way from where I live.

I flew to Hancock Fabrics as soon as I read this. Would you believe one customer came in and bought all they had!! I couldn't imagine making that many diapers, mattress liners, or diaper covers. The sales lady said the guy was moving and wanted to protect some things. Geesh...go to Home Depot and buy a tarp. The good news is that there will be a re-order, and since this sold so fast, they will be able to stock more at a time.:

I went by Hancocks yesterday looking for PUL but they didn't know what I was talking about They did show me something called 'baby dry' that had a fuzzy poly/cotton surface on one side and a thin coat of PU on the other. That's not the right stuff is it? I'm not sure exactly what PUL looks like on the roll :

The baby dry is what we were told to use by the hancock ladies. That was a few months ago. We made one cover out of it and it does work! The hancocks here is selling the Pul for 11.99 and the baby dry is 8.99

To me the baby dry and the white pul look the same.

I just noticed on the JoAnns website that they are selling "Diaper Cloth White" which is 36" wide and 100% cotton. I can't tell if it is birdseye or what for the description and picture. Has anyone seen this or used it yet? The price is 4.99, which is more expensive than what Hancock is charging for their diaper fabric online right now (I think its on sale for 3.49?)

The JoAnn's diaper cloth is birdseye. It's thinner than I like for birdseye, but not terrible quality. Fabric Depot is better quality and costs less than either JoAnn's or Hancock's, IIRC, but I'm not sure if you can buy it through their website or if it's only available at the store.

I used the baby dry fabric from Hancock to make diapers before they started carrying PUL. It was just okay. A little bulkier than PUL and not as soft and flexible. It would be better for changing pads.

I am going to check my Hancocks and see if they have this! It would be great to be able to buy it locally! I looked at Joanns the other day just in case they might have something but of course they didn't.

Fabricdepot does sell diaper fabrics online now. They have diaper flannel, birdseye and white PUL. Because they seem to keep their online stuff on sell the birdseye is only 2.62 a yard.
