If I wanted to embroider the butt of a dipe is there something special about it to not ruin the dipe?? I am thinking of a FB or a RT cover...something similar.

Special thread or something or is it just going to make the diaper leak?? Thanks much!

You'd need to seal the back of it by attaching another piece of PUL - which I think you can do by ironing with wrong sides together.

Kind of a silly question-but do you do this before or after sewing on the diaper?

Thanks for the response! Here's a different silly question!

Ok I think you embroider the dipe,
then you stick a piece of PUL into the pocket area
and iron on top of the fleece??

If that's how it goes I can't see being able to do it except with a pocket dipe. The RT I would have to pull apart to do. Also do you have to put something between the two PUL pieces to make them stay together?? Thanks!

So, how would that work if you wanted to embroider a wool cover? If you reinforce in the back with another piece of wool, then you have to sew it one, so if the thread is going to wick it'll wick at the edges of the reinforcement? How would that work? I thought the polyester type thread didn't wick.
