I am looking for a place to purchase some waterproof fabric from for the inside of the diaper bags that I make. I have used the clear vinyl, as well as colored vinyl (though walmart here only carries black, white and navy), but I am looking for a wider selection of colors. I've found some retailers selling PUL, but I'm really not wanting to spend $8-10 per yard for it. Does anyone have any other suggestions of material that I could use? And where can I find it?

Oilcloth and you can find it anywhere.  Purlsoho.com has a great selection.  Or just google oilcloth and a ton of online stores will come up.

I second the oilcloth and some hardware stores sell it also.

I think most fabrics they sell as tablecloth fabrics are fairly water-resistant, as are some of the ones they sell for jackets.. I've found both in the red-tag section at Joann for dirt cheap..

I've purchased several yards from fabric.com.  Type "laminated cotton" in the search box.

If you don't see any oilcloth you like, you can make your own using triple boiled linseed oil (oil from flax seeds).  Most commercial "oil cloth" is actually plastic coated fabric.

These are all great ideas, and probably easier/less expensive than what I'm suggesting, but what about Crypton Sunbrella fabrics? They're super-duty, industrial outdoor/waterproof fabrics and come in some really nice patterns.
