This is probably going to sound ridiculous - but do you have any recommendations on fabric to use on a diaper pail liner?<br><br>
[if you saw my previous thread, you'll notice that I have a nicely growing stash (still really have no idea what I'm doing) - so I thought i'd better try and 'save' some money - by sewing liners myself]<br><br>
I figure I'll need two - one for the wash day and one to replace it. Can I use any waterproof fabric - or is there a fabric that is preferable?<br><br>
Thanks!<br><br>

I would say order some PUL from <a href="http://www.janellespuls.com" target="_blank">www.janellespuls.com</a> (there are other sites that carry it but her prices are usually best and she is fast!). Get the heavy duty 2mil and you can wash and dry it with your dipes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I don't want to discourage you from sewing your own liner, but if you use PUL you will probably spend $20 or more on the PUL alone, not to mention the time, thread and drawstring. You can get a nylon tote (water proof) in the camping section of Walmart that fits a large kitchen pail (what I use for diapers) for $4. I have two of those, and they are great! I use one for the pail, one for poopies. ~

I only have one pail liner and have been considering sewing another one. Sign up for the email notifications at Wazoodle. They have the best prices on barrier fabrics. I haven't sewn a liner from their fabric yet, but I've made diaper covers, and it works just fine. When the fabric goes on sale (they'll email you about their sidewalk sales), you can buy it then.

PUL or nylon would work best ...<br><br><br>
BUT!! I agree with allformyboys<br>
Those bags do work great <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> and will save you $$$<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

Looks like I have something to add to my Walmart list!<br><br>
Thanks a bunch!<br><br>
Thanks for the PUL fabric website though ladies, if I get good at diapering, I will probably try my hand at sewing my own wraps!<br><br>

Your welcome, the bags at walmart are in the camping section and are nylon. And wraps aren't that hard to make, I think you should go for it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ~
