Do you have a favorite pattern you use for diapers? Share a link if you can.

Did you create your own pattern? How did you come up with it?


For OS dipes, I started with the RRP and adjusted it to work for us. When I first started making dipes, DS1 was a little over a year old and the rise wasn't high enough for him. I also made the tabs longer for the snaps and the butt area a little wider.

For NB size dipes, I just laid out a sposie and traced around it. I cut a couple of practice pieces out of scrap fabric and adjusted from there.

I started with the Wee Weka pattern http://www.thenappynetwork.org.nz/im...M%20Pocket.pdf but personally I think it's too narrow in the crotch when turning it into a pocket diaper. I made one using that pattern before I started modifying! I made 5 more similar to it, but since it had a fleece outer (flannel inner) I cut the fleece wider so I could wrap it to the inside for where the elastic goes - more water repellent around the legs and easier for me to install elastic.

When I started designing my own, I just kept modifying that one - a little longer here, wider there, narrower here, let's change this whole part, etc. and about 5 diaper prototypes later I was happy

My favorite by far is the LDD. La-Di-Da Diapers

I have also made Cloth Revolution as well as Fattycakes. Both are nice patterns.

I use the LaDiDa pattern as well I made a few adjustments to fit my daughter better (she is a big baby 28lbs at 17 months) I love that pattern!
