Hello! I am new to making cloth diapers, and have appreciated all the posts on this forum!! My question is, when making fitteds, what type of thread is best? My fabric is 100% cotton, should the thread be 100% cotton, too, or 100% polyester, or a mix?
Thanks for your help and wish me luck!!

For *Fitteds* cotton or polyester work equally well. For AIOs, pockets and covers you want to use polyester. Personally I just don't use cotton thread at all because invariably I would get the cotton and poly mixed up and wind up using the cotton on something that needed to be waterproof.

Same as jessielove-I just stick to 100% polyester all the time =) Makes it easier.
