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

KCK Ones! <a href="http://www.kaylasclothkits.com" target="_blank">www.kaylasclothkits.com</a> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I also am not a fan of the snapping rise thing (if you have a chubby baby they dig into thighs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">).

I have looked at this one, it looks super easy.<br><br>
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!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Little Comet Tails Little One-size Diaper <a href="http://hyenacart.com/LittleCometTails/index.php?c=9&p=23398" target="_blank">http://hyenacart.com/LittleCometTail...hp?c=9&p=23398</a><br><br>
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.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

<p>I have a <a href="http://www.mammacandoit.com/Diaper-Patterns/One-Size-Diaper-Pattern.html" target="_blank">One Size Diaper Pattern</a>. Fits similar to the major brands. It uses the snap down rise. Here is the pattern link: <a href="http://www.mammacandoit.com/Diaper-Patterns/One-Size-Diaper-Pattern.html" style="line-height:1.231;" target="_blank">http://www.mammacandoit.com/Diaper-Patterns/One-Size-Diaper-Pattern.html</a>.</p>
<p>I have a free insert pattern here: <a href="http://www.mammacandoit.com/Free-Patterns/How-to-make-a-diaper-insert.html" style="line-height:1.231;" target="_blank">http://www.mammacandoit.com/Free-Patterns/How-to-make-a-diaper-insert.html</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>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!</p>
