Looking for newborn/small pattern

I'd like to make some newborn diapers that will be trim but allow some room for growth. I would love to find something that is already converted, but if not a pattern for a small diaper that I can convert into a newborn-small myself.

I am licenced for La Di Da, but I don't want to have to worry about adding more snaps or length to the tabs.

My ideal weight range is from about 7-18 lbs. but anything up to 15 would be good.


Thanks in advance!

And I did check out the sticky but everything was either OS, newborn, or the links were not working.

My phone is dying so go to this blog (Arfy) and see if any of her newborn patterns are what you are looking for.

The free pattern from Little Comet Tails (Tighty Whitey Hipster)  x-sm is for 7 to 15 lbs.  I made some recently with a single snap down to make them small enough for a tiny newborn (more along the size of the preemie pattern).  We love the trim fit and easy way of snapping this one.

Could you possibly link me to that pattern? I have searched and I don't see it anywhere online for free.

I got the sizing from her Little Starter pattern I bought.  I also use the gussets from the Little Starter pattern on the Tighty Whitey Hipster.

I second the Arfy patterns.

This blog also has links and reviews to newborn patterns. Good resource. Sorry not clicky.

More broken links? Oy. I'll try to get on top of that. Cloth Revolution NB is supposed to be 5-14lbs. Not exactly what you're looking for, but close.

Thank you! Did you print the newborn or small version?
