When sewing cloth diapers, the soft loop side generally goes across the front panel of the diaper or cover and smaller hook tabs go on the wings.

Plan on using approximately 1 yard of hook tape for every 3 yards of loop tape.
Hook and Loop FAQ:
Q: Which is better? Aplix or Touchtape? What are the differences?

Most seamstresses who sew diapers for profit use Aplix, it is kind of the industry standard. However, while Touchtape may be stiffer, it also has a stronger grip. Some people use a combination of the two. Since Touchtape comes in fun colors, it's nice to mix and match.
Q: Will Aplix hook work with Touchtape loop and vice a versa?
A: Yes, both sides of both brands will work together.
