Curious, what is PUL? I make them for Quigley as well as none on the market fit him. Interested in making a "better" one.I make belly bands for my boys. I use a layer of PUL so they don't leak out, and several rows of snaps so they are adjustable. At night time, they wear them with a cut in half diaper inside.
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!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.
