Thats a hard question to answer. I tried all the free ones before I ever bought one and ended up buying a Very Baby then drafting my own eventually.

If you're wanting a one size super easy and cute fitted diaper pattern, my fave was this one. http://www.geocities.com/myfreediaperpattern/

Will these work for sweaterpant longies? They don't have to be 100%...

I'm going to attempt to make diaper covers w/ the body of the sweater. I'm going to try to felt it and see what happens. I *really* hope I don't shrink it because that would sort of suck. OTOH, at least I can find more wool sweaters at the thrift store. One of the sweaters I found was made...

If you've ever felt the "pul" that you buy online 1 mil and 2 mil, this is not what it will feel like on a coat or a jacket. It will be much thicker and may be more or less shiney.

The Singer Serger is famous for breaking needles, the lady at walmart told me so! And..they break cuz they hit the loopers. My advice, take it back to walmart, tell them it was a gift but doesn't work, they wont ask how old it is, trust me they wont.... get your giftcard spend your money on something else and NEVER buy singer again... specially the new Singers, they stink.
