Re: easy diaper pattern

I like the little green bear pattern (wazoodle.com, I think?) I modified mine a bit. It was a little too wide in the crotch and I was converting prefolds into fitteds.

there's a good tutorial for adding gussets (so important if you are breastfeeding, IMO) and it's not too hard, but I have a serger

It took 4-5 dipes before I got it just the way I wanted. So you might use your least favorite fabrics first or try old t-shirts first. I choose to use a snappi instead of adding aplix or snaps, so I had to use a "snappiable" outer, like birdseye or t-shirt material.
