looking for a VERY easy newbie fitted diaper pattern

I am a beginner to sewing and am (really) eager to try my first fitted diaper, though I might be a bit crazy to try that out so soon!

Do any of you have a link or free pattern/blog tutorial/youtube video etc of one you found especially simple or good for a beginner? I am going to need every step and pic possible to figure it out since I haven't done anything like this (esp the elastic leg part I'm guessing!)

I am probably going to try to make it out of bamboo and cotton. That's if all goes well.. haha

My sewing has consisted of just following tutorial blogs online so far (hats, bibs, blankets). So I am not quite sure where to begin with this, thanks for any help!!

Re: looking for a VERY easy newbie fitted diaper pattern

I like Darling Diapers Free Newborn Pattern.
All though the rita rump pocket is the easiest, Ive ever done, its a snapless onesize.

When you get up to onesize diapers this tutorial is good:

Here's an insert tutorial that can help you with the insert:

^thanks for the suggestions.

how about any that are similar to the mother ease fitted?

and anyone have any covers that they love?

I always wonder when looking at patterns if there are some that perform better than others? Just like some brands perform better than others? What should I be looking for?

I love Sew Cheeky's tutorials for sewing projects. She makes them seem very easy which gives me the confidence to keep going! I was afraid to try my first fitted, but I just went for it and now I am hooked!
