    Whole bolts of PUL at Tuesday Morning!

    I was at my local Tuesday Morning today and was surprised to see about a dozen whole bolts of PUL for sale for $20. Yes, $20. There were only three patterns - solid pink, solid blue, and a cupcake pattern. Oh, and the bolts are wrapped in plastic and say Babyville.

    Check the store in your area. I know things are hit-or-miss with Tuesday Morning. BTW, I'm in Cary, NC, if anybody here needs any, it's at South Hills Mall.

    Thanks for the heads up. We have one here in Corpus Christi. Don't go there very often. I think they're pretty pricey. Not one to dig through some of the bins. Creepy! Ours is in Carmel Plaza.

    The store in Florence, KY had the bolts. I volunteer sew in the sewing room at childrens hospital, and we bought ALL of them. This fabric is wonderful to sew with. We use them to make wipeable covers for all sorts of things. So much easier to sew with than vinyl, or the laminate fabric meant for raincoats.

    After we found the fabric in Florence we called every TM in the greater Cincinnati area, and could not find more. We keep watching.

    PUL is a waterproof fabric that can be used for cloth diapers, bibs, wetbags, aprons and so much more! The fabric is 64 inches wide. 1 yard = 36 inches by 64 inches.

    PUL can be used to make diaper covers. It's polyester and polypropylene, I think. And I'm told that all the needle holes close up when it's washed and dried, so it's truly water proof.

    JoAnn's carries it. But it's in the notion area, not mixed in with the fabric.

    Mine is always nicely maintained. Maybe it depends on the store.

    Thank you for the answer Chasing Hawk! I was also one of those who didn't know what PUL was.

    You both are very welcome. I too did not know what it was or at least is was called that. Learn something new every day here on the QB.

    I also want to thank you Chasing Hawk! I know what it is now, but do not know if I would have a use for it.

    I used to buy that fabric and cut it in half to make pads for the bed of my little one who tended to wet the bed...it was very cost effective and make changing the bed in the middle of the night a lot quicker!

    My daughter only used cloth diapers for her children. I landed up making many of them. Cloth diapers can be very pricey. I used a lot of PUL making them. I'm glad my grandchildren are older and no longer in diapers.

    Thanks C.H. Now that I know what it is, I don't need any. I only make quilts. Grands are too old to need this.

    I didn't know the term 'PUL' so thank you for sharing. I have however used the fabric for making rain slickers for my dogs.... crazy yes, but there is just enough stretch that it works great with my favorite pattern and being waterproof keeps them nice and dry!

    I only know what PUL is because my daughter wanted some wet bags before her baby was born and they cost $18 at Buy Buy Baby. JoAnns has some really cute patterns for little ones and I got it when it was 50 percent off. I'll definitely be checking my Tuesday Morning. Thanks for the heads up.
