Diaper pattern to match Swaddlebees

Like these.

I bought them, and I am IN LOVE. I'm not finding any more like them though. Lots of the newer style... So I'm thinking I may end up having to make some... Any good patterns out there for trim fitting, side snapping, pocket diapers?

Oh yeah. One more question. Does microfleece shrink? Because I'm trying to decide if the PUL and microfleece on these were CUT to be different sizes, if the microfleece shrank, or if the PUL stretched.

No, those birthday's aren't a typo either.

Trimsies is a side snap trim fit pattern similar to this diaper. Micro fleece does not shrink.

Re: Diaper pattern to match Swaddlebees

Darling diapers has a side snapping option that I find to be pretty close to swaddlebees as well. Her pattern runs larger for all sizes so her xs/premie is really a newborn, trimsies run smaller.

Yes, the PUL is cut slightly larger to roll in and keep from wicking. I don't care for zigzaged leg elastic without the encasing though. It makes things difficult to replace later on. DD pattern has tips for this as well. I've not had any problems with wicking with the other diapers that do not have this feature.
