Item details

I've had a love and passion for cloth diapering since I started with my own daughter 3 years ago. I've used those years of trial and error to develop this pattern for you to create your own cloth diapers. As easy as cloth diapering is, it’s even easier to custom make your own stash and fill it with prints and fabrics that you not only love, but that will work well for your baby.


This PDF includes a 20 page detailed tutorial for sewing your own newborn hybrid fitted cloth diapers for babies up to approximately 12 pounds. This diaper features a snap closure with umbilical cord snap down. I've covered everything from which fabric options are out there (including my favorite options and where I buy my fabrics) as well as photo instructions for adding your snaps (even what to do when you mess them up!).

There are two options for snap in insert patterns for you to make a 3 layer bamboo fleece snake style insert as well as a more contoured, slightly shorter insert that can either be used instead of or along with the snake style insert. These diapers are not fully waterproof on their own but can be used for up to 2-3 hours without a cover. Most people like to add covers for overnight or when out of the house.

----For OS PDF:
----For NB & OS Bundle PDF:

-You can use this pattern with a basic sewing machine. The only change you'll need to make is to use a wide, but short zig zag stitch for the insert edging rather than a serger.
-You should be able to get 4-6 OS diaper cuts or 5-8 NB diaper cuts per yard of fabric, and get more cuts if the fabric is one continuous piece.
-You can try adding a layer a PUL but I choose not to include it for a few reasons such as needing to alter washing routine (no drying in dryer, especially at a higher temp), no ability to see the fabric and check for delamination, and it traps in more moisture which sounds like a great thing but it can actually leads to rashes from the ammonia in urine. So yes, it can be done, but I personally don't use that method.
