    Some people also use flannel but on the inner of the booster. or you can use fleece on the ouside if you want pattern ones



    ETA- how many layers of bamboo would you use if you were doing a microfleec outer

    thanks

    I use mainly pockets, so its most liekly going to be stuffed into the pocket. She wees for Australia so I just wanted to have some extra boosters to add it with the normal inserts I use.

    So how many layers of bamboo should I use for it?
    And would I use the furry side for the outside or the inside of the booster, or it doesnt matter?
    Can you still buy flannel in SL or would it all be gone by now?
    Is tri fold the one where its a square shape and you fold it into thirds?

    For boosters 3 layers is great. Nice and thirsty but doesn't take too long to dry. Nelles suggestion of a trifold is a great idea too Karina you've got it spot in that's what a trifold is!


    I still do 3 layers with a fleece topper or with flanelette to co-ordinate with the nappy inner.

    I finished off that nappy I started at Melbels place. You know the chocolate dot minky one that I didn't concerntrate on and sewed a deco tab on back to front
    Only took me 2 months or so to get motivated enough to unpick the ruddy thing. I so hate unpicking!

    I uploaded some pics of Caleb wearing the dot minky nappy that I started making as Mels meetup last year.
    Warning: very unco-operative boy!

    Hey, they're not bad shots for an uncooperative kid Sammi! Great to see the nappy finished, the minky looks great! Hidden PUL?

    Do spotlight sell PUL or do you have to get it from specialty places?

    Spotters don't as far as I know (I doubt they know what it is), so it tends to be specialty nappy making stores. Lucky there's a few of them around!
