    Question About No-Sew Fleece Liners

    I've been using fleece with U-Haul pads for a few months now, and I know that a liner would make my life easier. I have some questions about the best construction, though:

    1. Should I use only one layer of U-Haul pad in the middle of the two layers of fleece, or should I fold it over so it's double layered?

    2. Do I need to make where only three sides are closed so I have to pull out the U-Haul pad to wash separately, or should the U-Haul pad stay in position well enough that I can close all four sides and just throw the liner in the wash all together as one piece?

    3. Should Stitch Witchery be enough to hold all of the sides together?

    I appreciate any help!

    1- you don't need 2 layers, you can have just one.

    2- mine is all one piece that isn't coming apart. Trust me when I say your life will be easier that way.

    3- I'm not familiar with the product so I can't attest to it.

    I'm not sure Stitch Witchery would hold up under all the washing and drying. If your trying to avoid sewing you could start out with Stitch Witchery and then I'd keep some Alene's fabric glue on hand. Don't remember which one, but I've had better luck with that holding up for the long term.

    I totally agree. Why not sew it? If you don't have a machine, get everything cut, positioned, and pinned.......ready to sew. Find a neighbor or someone who sews and offer to trade something for her time.....a chore, make a meal, wash her windows, etc. Come over to my house and we'll make a party out of it! I desperately need to sew some new liners

    I recommend a single layer of uHaul pad in the middle. Dries much faster and is less bulky. No how many layers you have, if they're urine soaked, they are going to smell. I find that one layer does a perfectly adequate job. My liners are now nearly five years old and still going strong. However, I can tell that the uHaul layer has worn out because the urine is showing up on the underpads.

    I don't have a sewing machine, and I don't know anyone with one either, unfortunately!

    Re: Question About No-Sew Fleece Liners

    You can always buy them ready made online, but it can be pricey. Or you can buy yourself a sewing machine for under $100 , you don't need a top of the line machine, and you will feel so good about learning a new skill and being able to make all your own piggy accessories.

    I agree with spydoc about just having one layer of uhaul in the middle, it looks better and washes better too.
