I just finished sewing them tonight. Now I just need to get the elastic in, turn and topstitch, and finish with the outer snaps. What pattern do you suggest that has sized front snap diapers, free or bought? Once I get the hang of these I want to make some of each size for the different knits I bought. Also for a fleece soaker, what pattern would you suggest?
I like the Katrina Soaker pattern. She has patterns for all the sizes and even longies/shorties. The same pattern works on wool as well in case you find some cute sweaters you want to upcycle.
