I've used it for baby change pads. My Janome didn't like it but my Juki had no trouble. Use a new needle in your machine and stitch correctly the first time as ripping out a line of stitching would leave a line of holes. The change pads washed up well and we hung them on the clothes line to dry.

How do you make a sandwich wrap?

I made a mat for my DGD when she was a baby. Instead of cotton backing I used Rip-Stop, similar to what spray jackets are made from. It doesn't make it waterproof but it's water resistant.
My daughter loved it for taking to the park. All her friends asked where she got it. I did a quilt for a friend's GS recently and put Rip-Stop on the back. I used polyester batting for the loft in both cases.
Rip-Stop is made of nylon.

I just finished a coat for my granddaughter using it for the outside. I used minky for the lining. It's very soft and cozy. I used a walking foot to sew the PUL fabric. I love that stuff!!

Do your research before making sandwich wraps. Not all PULs are food safe.
