Im not sure if that would work, the texture of the fabric would probably make the image bleed or have spaces where the ink didnt get on the fabric all the way..

I don't know, but I think you'd probably not want to have fine detail.  I assume by baby corduroy you mean the sort that's quite thin and fine.  I found this on the Speedball FAQ about towelling, so if you can screen on towelling, you can probably screen on corduroy:

# Can I use your screen printing inks on towels, wash cloths, etc. that will be touching peoples skin?
First of all, in order to print on towels or wash cloths, you will need to add about 20%, by volume, of the Transparent Base and then add 5%-10%, by volume, of water to reduce the viscosity. This will lower the solids and give better penetration, yielding a softer touch. ...blah blah...
