Thanks to AUGUSTCHAS for this Frugal Baby Tip!
QUESTION: I love to sew and am thinking about sewing some fleece diaper covers for Devin. I have a question for the "sewers" in the group. Do I need to do anything special to treat the fleece? Also is their a special type of fleece that I should use?
You don't need to do anything to treat the fleece. I did wash mine on hot
twice and dry on hot twice before cutting and sewing to assure if there was
any shrinkage it wouldn't happen afterward. The heat helps the fleece to
become more water resistent. With choosing fleece, there is just no way to
tell unless you try it out. I tested some that was wonderful. I went back
and purchased the *exact same thing* in a different color and it's worthless.
It's very frustrating. You will know right away if you have some that will
work. The water will either bead up like on a waxed car or soak in. Testing
it with some water is just the only way to tell. I have tried about 10
different kinds and 4 of them have been good.
