Re: My MIL wants to..

Hey you! You will probably need somewhere between 4-8oz depending on the exact measurements of your LO. Here is link to a thread that gives you general amounts based on measurements:

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...d.php?t=129834

As for patterns, some popular ones are:

Freckle bottoms
Adorabubble
Sheepy Pants

Watch out! Wool is as slippery a slope if not more so than GMs!
