Newborn fitted diaper free PDF sewing pattern

So I finally sat down this evening and finished this one up.  It's been sitting here just about done for some time.  Finding the time to wrap it up has been the challenge.  Now, this pattern is based off my OS fitted only sized for a newborn/small baby.  *DISCLAIMER* this pattern has not been tested yet but is based off solid good measurements that I use over and over again so the fit should be good.  If you make one and find it needs a tweak please shoot me some feedback.  I will post on Facebook to see if I can round up testers for this one and get it redone with instructions and photos.

It's pretty basic construction.  There is a 1/2 inch seam allowance on the pattern so that this diaper can be sewn turned and top-stitched or serged.  If you are making it serged you will want to use the casing line as your guide for where to sew down your elastic.  Use 1/4 inch polybraid for legs and back.  If you are making one turned and top-stitched stitch you can tack where indicated and case after sewing while top-stitching or sew the elastic into the seam allowance and case after the fact.

I have everything in legends on each page, if you have any questions please feel free to post here or on my Facebook page and I'll answer you promptly.

As always I love to see pictures of your diaper creations made using my patterns so please feel free to share here.

As with all my patterns you are free to sell from this one as well.  You can read more about this here.
