  5. Thank you for the free diaper patterns - the doll diapers are awesome...now I know what I'll be making for Christmas this year!

    Also, thank you for making a printable Snapazoo pattern. My husband, Mark G. introduced the Snapazoo toy to the Kam Snap community on Facebook - It's wonderful that others will be able to make this fun toy using your pattern!

  7. Weird question but is the circle in the middle near your rounded wings in the photo above just to match up the pieces when you print them? Or is it a snap I need to place? I DL'ed your square OS and it has it as well, I'm just not sure what to do with it.

    Also, how do I know what length elastic I should use for these?

    1. It is snap-placement for if you use them for an AI2 with a snap-in soaker or a fitted with a snap-in soaker.

      I have no idea on elastic lengths. I am a tack, stretch, tack person. I stretch to when it is ALMOST all the way stretched out at the full casing length. People claim that is usually at when the elastic is about half the casing length. I don't cut until after sewing in though. I don't use the method when you tack the edges and sew the casings afterwards like Tutsy does on her tutorial. I sew casings first, then feed my elastics in after that.

  10. The two solid lines going around the pattern, is the outer for T&T and the inner for serging? I am M-L fitted and the NB serged fitted and planning to serge both, and I want to cut to the right size :-)

    Thanks SO much for making all your work available - it is a really generous gift!

    1. The outer line is always the cutting line. For serging, you just trim a little bit of it while serging (up to 1/4" usually). The first line in from the cutting line is the outline of the diaper after being T&T. You can use it as your T&T sewing line, but I typically just sew in about 1/4" and not the full amount that I allow for in the templates. It is all sort of an approximate range.

  11. Thanks for posting these. I'm trying to make a flip style with extra gussets since my daughter has issues with it all coming out the legs. Once I get all my materials, I'm hoping to figure this out. I can send you pictures of the finished ones, if you'd like.

  12. What software do you use to draft your patterns? I have a mei tei wrap conversion pattern I want to draft to pdf and offer it up for free. I love the Grobaby knockoff - that is brilliant. I loved the fit of the Grovia covers when my son was a newbie, but he soon had to switch to wool only because his little but was getting too many rashes.

    Any chance you'll take a swing at the GroVia snap in soaker? I have a hand drafted version.

  13. Hey! thanks for these patterns they are awsome!! just tried the flip style, and the OS squaretab curious if you know how small the smallest snap down fits?

  14. Приветик. теперь и малыши из Украины будут носить непромокаемые трусики, сшитые по вашим выкройкам. Большое спасибо вам.

  16. Awesomeness. :) I have been making diapers for a while, and these are a big help for when I need to alter my pattern larger or smaller!

  17. how many yards of fabric for the fold out os fitted, assuming it's 2 layers throughout? these patterns are fabulous, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is about 18.5"x18.5" for each layer serged, and about 19"x18.5" for each layer T&T. So, a single full width 19" cut would be enough for one diaper plus some extra. However, a half-yard would not QUITE be enough... although, you could totally make it work and just shrink the rise down a tiny bit.

  18. I am looking for the easiest diaper to make for a mission project. We are making diapers for infants in an orphanage in Vietnam. We have lots of flannel fabric. They need diapers that dry quickly and aren't too hot. What are your suggestion

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd say do fold-in fitteds with 4 layers of flannel. Do mostly the OS and a few XSs. :) That would be what I'd do at least. They'd wash and dry easily. They'd need covers though. So, you could send along some fleece covers as well (I'd just do really simple 2-layer fleece covers so they'd be easy to care for and breathable.)

  19. Do you have a supply list with measurements of supplies needed? I didn't see any.

  20. Thank you so much for these patterns! I love the fitted and Grobaby ones. Do you have any plans on designing a side-snapping diaper? Thanks!

  25. Hi! What weight and age are L and XL diapers? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you for this! I have made 2 for my son! I seem to be doing something terribly wrong though.... they sewed well, look great and fit great, but the second he urinates, it runs/seeps out the leg hole (soaks up the back side of the fabric - I did 'hidden pul.' ) I have done a soaker with 2 layer diaper cloth and 2 layer terry... and I've tried that plus 2 layer terry and one layer micro fiber... they're getting FAT! I have them snapping to the back of a double welt pocked AI2. hahah but no matter, something is wrong. The leg holes seem to be just right too - like the disposables we were using, not loose and not so tight his legs fall off.... help!! thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete

    1. "Hidden PUL" doesn't work with a cotton outer unless you do some VERY specific things. Even then it is hit or miss. The issues is that the cotton *WICKS* the fluids right out from the inside absorbent materials and to the outside. That is just what happens when you have an full panel absorbent outer on a diaper. The only time it might be semi-functional is if it were with an AI2 with a thick repelling fleece inner AND ruffled legs. Or if you do an AIO with the PUL inner cut-out to put space between the diaper absorbency and the outer fabric.

      Delete
    2. THANK YOU, Arfy!! That mkes perfect sense about the wicking... guess I just had to hear it. I had cotton, then PUL, then inside was fleece and the pocket with snap in soaker. Off to try again, without hiding anything;)! Thank you, for the patterns, tutorials AND taking time to help me out!! - Amanda

      Delete
    3. If you're doing a pocket, what kind of fleece are you using? That could also be an issue and you could be having repelling in addition to your wicking to the outer. Pockets have to be microfleece (the VERY thin kind), pre-washed suedecloth (NOT microsuede), or wicking jersey in order to both allow the moisture easily through and keep the surface fairly stay-dry. :)

      Delete
    4. I have microfleece, one was thicker but really 'tight/fine??' and the other was really fine and thin... both had the same issue. The thinner one was actually worse...almost none of it made it to the soaker. Thank you for that though, I was thinking only fleece (so new to this;)), nice to know about the others. To me, the pocket allows the insert soaker to maybe wash better?? Is there really a benefit of that, or are AIO better? Thanks;)

    And I want to ask further if I use your pattern to make cloth diapers for sale? Thanks a lot Arfy :)

  29. i just wanted to thank you for this great pattern. and all of your tutorials and advice. my diaper cover looks professional and so much cuter than i ever could have imagined. all of that is due to your hard work! we are all so thankful for your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is probably a dumb question, but I'm new to this, so here it goes. Do you pre-wash your prefolds before cutting them to make them into fitted diapers? You know, for shrinkage?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just found your blog and I think your patterns and tutorials are awesome! I have a question though. What is the advantage (if any) for ruffled legs/elastic vs non ruffled?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is usually just an issue of personal preference or aesthetics. The only place where it CAN actually provide functional benefits is to help reduce wicking in AI2s with repelling inner fabrics and potentially absorbent/wicking outers.

      Delete
  32. I am working on the small t&t fold in fitted and I cannot get the elastic right. Can you help me out on how long it should be for the legs and the back and also how wide the elastic should be? Thank you so much!

    1. Here is how I install elastic in almost all of my diapers: http://prefold2fitted.blogspot.com/2013/05/installing-cased-elastic.html
      I use 3/8" poly braided elastic for my fold-in fitteds (and MOST diapers I make) and I never pre-measure.

  33. So I just made the Snapazoo. My first attempt I tried using a couple layers of leftover fleece I had laying around from Halloween. Epic fail. I've been on the hunt for the perfect material that was also not very expensive. I was thinking maybe those fun foam sheets you can find at Michaels but they are kind of expensive. Anyway, I was at CVS and saw a dish drying mat that had soft microfiber on both sides, and a thin layer of foam in the middle. BINGO! I don't have a serger, so I did a loose zig-zag around then cut out the shapes so the whole thing wouldn't fall apart, then redid the zig-zag a little tighter to clean it up. I was able to get 2 out of the one dish mat (that I paid $3 for) once I scaled the pattern to about 80%. :-D Super stoked on the Snapazoo.

  37. I'm looking for a pattern for training pants for a 7 year old who still wets the bed. Do you have something that would work?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think maybe the easiest way to do this is to look at the trainer pattern with the stretchy sides, and scale it up. Or you could take the kid's underwear and make your own paper pattern to match the sizing, then add seam allowances.

  40. I received some handed down Bumpy and Biobottoms diaper covers made from two layers - the outer is made from cotton and the inner is pul (I think, the tag says 100% polyester). I know you don't like hidden pul. Is this the same as hidden pul? Will it cause the same type of wicking as hidden pul if the entire inside of the diaper cover is pul? I would love to make replicas of these diapers because I enjoyed the fit on my newborn baby, but am unsure if the wicking will be a problem.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, for a cover, that is not the same thing. :) I have made covers before with cotton outers and PUL inners and, as long as the cotton doesn't come in contact with the fitted, prefold, or soaker inside, it won't wick. :)

  43. Hi! First of all, thank you sooooo much for sharing all your great work! I wanted to ask you this: I see there is a template for a OS t&t cover... is this meant tobe made from PUL? Isn't there a pictorial for that?
    Thank you again!
