I'm very interested in making some cloth diapers, but where would I find a pattern for one? Any ideas? :

www.diapersewing.com has free instructions.
www.sewshoppe.com has patterns you can buy, as does www.diapershop.com.
Try asking in the sewing and crafts forum.

Also try:

Kimi was very nice to work with and the PooPockets pattern was VERY easy to follow!

If you have a favorite diaper.... and you're brave... you could always try de-constructing it and making a pattern from it. I used to do that with clothes back when I knew how to sew : and it worked great. But you have to be willing to *waste* a favorite diaper... so it takes a bit of a leap of faith.

Actually, I've had good luck tracing around favorite diapers (stretching out the elastic) and then adjusted as I saw fit to make my own pattern.

I started with the HoneyBoy pattern, though, and I found that a great place to start. You can order it at SewShoppe. They have other patterns, too. I guess I'm a pattern person...I like to start out with one, and then monkey with it to get exactly what I want.
