This is why...

...I no longer use woven, DIY, or printed PUL.

You can clearly see the line where the edge of the velcro was--the fabric has faded badly. Also the material itself has worn through at this minor stress point (where it was sewn) leaving the bare laminate exposed. The points of harder stress (the corners and edges) were worse.
This diaper was only used for about 9 months, washed about twice a week during that time. So that's somewhere around 80 washings...other diapers I made at the same time and have washed the same way are in MUCH better shape. It's the fabric.

This is why I stick to solid colors and factory-issued PUL. It may not be quite as cute, but it will last much, much longer!
