You can order PUL fabric and other diaper sewing supplies from this
site. I really like the site for my PUL because they offer several
size options for fabric. Joann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby both sell a
small line of PUL fabric, but they don’t have a huge selection.
Make sure you use a coupon if you purchase at those stores to save

University has extensive information on cloth diapering:
This is where I purchased my snap pliers and snaps. I think the
prices are reasonable and their pliers stand up to heavy use. I have
one of the earlier models and it’s still going strong, but they
only install a size 20 snap. This works fine for cloth diapers, but
if you need to push through a thicker item then you may need a bigger
snap size. They have some new pliers available now that have more
functions to them. If I were still sewing cloth diapers or other
items that required a bigger snap, then I would definitely consider
purchasing a snap press or a different set of pliers.
