I am currently making pocket diapers, but would like to try making a diaper cover. What would you use next to the skin? I am going use the same method I am using right now for the outer which is PUL with flannel sewn on the outside about an inch from the edge to prevent wicking, but I don't know if I should continue to use suede on the inside or something else. TIA I'm assuming you need something for the inside right?

You don't neccesarily need somthing for the inside, lots of moms make 1 layers PUL covers, shiny side next to bum. Easy to rinse and re-use this way. If you want another layer, anything non-absorbant should work fine (suede, microfleece). HTH.

Are you T&T or binding with FOE? If you're T&T, I'd probably use suedecloth or microfleece and make it like you've been doing the pockets. If you bind with FOE, you can just bind around the flannel and PUL by itself, putting knit side toward baby. My cover like that works great (cotton woven print, not flannel).<br><br>
My favorite never-fails cover is a one layer PUL cover bound in FOE. I just put an extra layer in the snap/aplix areas (cut out from the pattern, so the edges of that area are bound in the FOE), but otherwise, shiny side of PUL is toward baby. Since it's a cover, there will be a soft diaper against baby anyway. Btw, this is the easiest cover I've made, and it just works SO well. Best for fun PUL colors though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
