I know for a fact no one will buy any cloth dipes for me- that's the only thing I tell them I want when they ask. So I really want to make a bunch of one size dipes so I don't have to make a bunch in several different sizes. It doesn't have to be a free pattern.

What is your favorite? What works best? Any tips and tricks would be helpful for me seeing as I'm quite the novice sewer.

TIA!!!

KCK Ones! www.kaylasclothkits.com That was the first dipe I ever sewed and super simple to do. I'd suggest starting with a "traditional pocket" on the pattern and once you feel comfy diving into the "welt pocket". They're the only OS that ever fit my chubby 2nd son- he outgrew BG 2.0s at 6 months lol, but still the KCK Ones were fine . I also am not a fan of the snapping rise thing (if you have a chubby baby they dig into thighs ).

I have looked at this one, it looks super easy.

I may just have to make one of each and see what I like best. Maybe I'll make a toddler size one to try on DS- we will HATE it but then I can see how they fit!

I was just going to say these. I just whipped up a few for my new baby. I didn't add the seam allowance to the pattern because I wanted it to fit better in the newborn/small size. They look really neat and were very inexpensive and easy to make. I won't get to actually try it for a while yet so I can't really speack for how they work

Little Comet Tails Little One-size Diaper http://hyenacart.com/LittleCometTail...hp?c=9&p=23398

It has directions for covers, fitteds and AIOs. I haven't tried it myself but I've heard rave reviews. I have tried other of her patterns and found them to be very user friendly.

I have a One Size Diaper Pattern. Fits similar to the major brands. It uses the snap down rise. Here is the pattern link: http://www.mammacandoit.com/Diaper-Patterns/One-Size-Diaper-Pattern.html.

I have a free insert pattern here: http://www.mammacandoit.com/Free-Patterns/How-to-make-a-diaper-insert.html

 

I like that it fits like the major brands...so does everyone that uses them! The last batch that I made cost me like $4 a piece to make them instead of buying them for crazy expensive. There are even gussets that you can make! Although I didn't need them with my last baby, they fit great anyway!! There is also optional adjustable elastic. great option for something new!
