Pics of the diapers I've made from free patterns

All of them are pictured on my 18 pound 8 month old.

The first one (white with blue stars) is a flannle fitted I made from the mamabird pattern. It's one of my first fitteds ever. It's a size large and it fits him on the smallest setting. It's a good basic fitted, but it's a little bulky through the crotch. I also think the wings need to be a smidge longer. This is the first and last diaper I made with an internal soaker. I hate how long it takes to dry. It's turned and topstitched.

The second one is a fitted from the Wee Weka S-M front snap pocket/fitted pattern. It's on the tightest setting. I added a second row of snaps where they tell you to put aplix. I made it from blue ginghamn woven on the outside and flannel inside with a snap-in soaker. I really like this diaper! It's nice and trim through the crotch and I feel like this could fit him a long time. It's serged.

The last is a PUL/suedecloth pocket from the Wee Weka side snap pattern. It's a S-M and fits him on the tightest setting. I love this pattern too. It fits him great and is nice and trim. I think he will outgrow the rise in not too long though. The one pictured is stitched and turned, but I made another with FOE and it has a bigger rise. It will probably fit him longer. It's stuffed with a microfiber towel.

Hope this gives you guys some ideas of how the different free patterns turn out! I hope to make some more and post more pictures in the coming weeks. It's fun to try out all these patterns for free.

So which pattern did you like better? Wee Weka or mamabird. I have made the mamabird, but I think I'm going to tweak it in the crotch. I just printed out the wee weka to try, but am waiting on more fabric first.
