Curious, what is PUL? I make them for Quigley as well as none on the market fit him. Interested in making a "better" one.

PUL is a fabric that has been laminated or treated on one side to make it waterproof, but still soft and stretchy. Most people that make diapers for their skin-kids (human babies) use PUL, that's where I got the idea to use it. This makes the belly bands completely washable so you don't have the added expense of pads or diapers every week if you build in a soaker pad. I make my girls panties with it too.

So far, I have only been able to find it at JoAnn's fabric store and online. Here in KY, it costs about $12 per yard. But JoAnn's mails out coupons for 40% off about once a month so that knocks it down to about $7. And that really isn't bad considering how many belly bands you can get cut from a yard.

Cindy, Great information. I have sewn all my life and never heard of this. I made Quigley's (he is incontinent due to medical issues) from flannel and lined it with plastic to make the barrier. I am going to see if I can find it at our JoAnnes next time I am there. Thank you!

You are welcome. In our JoAnn's, it is in the back with the utility fabrics, but I'm sure any of the people that work there could show you. It comes in a few different colors and patterns. Good luck!

I'm at super zoo this week, one of the pet industry's biggests annual expos, and i noticed that Oscar Newman is making belly bands. They look like their made out of light terry cloth and embroidered with different sayings.

I didn't ask for pricing on Oscar Newman's belly bands but if they are priced anything like their other products, high end small dog clothing / accessories, it will cost you a pretty penny.

I ordered 4 belly bands for Pico from this site. They are made to order and you can pick your fabric! Much less expensive than pet stores too...
