I've decided to try my hand at making a few dipes for my soon to be little one. I've found a pattern to start with, and have been seeing lots of places that say aplix is softer than velcro but I can't find aplix anywhere. Is this a namebrand or just a special type of velcro? The lady at the fabric store (bless her heart) looked at me like I was nuts and thought I was talking about apliques (sp) so I thought I'd come to the experts. What kind of velcroish closures do those of you who sew your own diapers use?
