Darling Diapers NB/ Katrina's Quick Sew?

I am wanting to make some newborn diapers for my little one set to arrive at the end of October. Has anyone used the free Darling Diapers NB for fitteds with the Katrina's Quick Sew pattern? If so, how did they work? I will be making the diapers from bamboo or hemp and the soaker from felted sweaters or my wool fabric I got from a co-op when DD was still in diapers. Thank you so much!

The free DD is super and I have made several. Katrina's soaker pattern is very nice as well although I haven't used it but do have it.

Here is a DDNB. It has a lay in soaker not shown in the pic.

Almost all of my NB dipes are the darling diapers pattern. It's super easy to follow. I didn't add the snap to fold it down for the umbilical cord- I was just going to put in a small stitch and rip it out when his cord falls off.

Re: Darling Diapers NB/ Katrina's Quick Sew?

I've made both but only tried the katrina's soakers. I have to be honest, it sews up great, but I didn't get the best fit on ds at any of the sizes I made. I have heard really great things about the mile high monkeys pattern, though.

Here's my little darling diapers nb from the free pattern on her site. I think it turned out very sweet. Another mama mentioned that you should not pull the elastic super tightly in this diaper because it causes the diaper to be outgrown too soon. The diaper has two snap rows, so it's very adjustable.






found an old pic of a katrina's soaker I made. It's on the right.

Thanks ladies!!! As soon as I get to feeling better I am going to start making some of both. I am so excited to get started on them. All of your examples look great!

I know this is an old thread, but I'm trying to sew diapers using the free Darling Diapers NB pattern and I have no idea how long the elastic should be... any thoughts?

I appreciate the help!
