Anyone know of a good Large diaper pattern I could make a pocket from? Melanie is starting to need bigger diapers and the only pattern I have is babyville which isn't the greatest.

I love the sproutsnap pattern but can't find it anymore. Let me look around tonight because I'm sure there's another one just like it

I heard the one*der snap was from the same maker but I thought it was a OS pattern?

I think that was the one. It is a os pattern but I made half of mine size large...just left the rise snaps off them. My girls have used them since Sydney was a year old and Kenzie can still fit them at 3 yrs old lol

Yeah I haven't used rise snaps on her since she was 6 months so all are os without rise snaps, she is so tall and chunky thighed lol I can't even snap a nykibaby on her anymore and those were big.

Oh. Idk then. This is the biggest pattern of any of my diapers but I don't have other patterns to compare them to personally.

What size are you looking for?  I mean, how big is your Melanie?  The Tighty Whitey Hipster freebie goes to an extra-large for 35+ lbs. and I just measured my pattern.  The length is 19 1/2" so 19" finished and the waist at the larger snap setting (snapped) is 24".  It is a hip snapping pattern and for older kids works great according to my neice who used the size medium on her 3 year old.  She liked the way with her being an active toddler it didn't bind, looked trim and was easy to put on.

That's the thing, she is only 26lbs but it seems to be all in her waist and butt. For example, in a bg 4.0 pockey she uses it completely open (no rise snaps), and is on the last snap on each side. I tried hip snaps but didn't really like them but that might be my only option. Maybe I should try it again, it was awhile ago. Do you have a pic of the tighty whitey hipster front view?

The babyville size large fits her well size wise but I thought there might be another pattern I could try.

My pictures are booty shots, but here is a post another mom made on her in 2010.  I also did a google search on Tighty Whitey Hipster picture and found more.  I made one hip snapping diaper and didn't realize it snapped toward the back.  I really did not like that one!  Our little one is just now 19 lbs, 12 mos. and she is still wearing the size small, but we use them as an AI2 with a peanut shaped insert, so they have a bit more room.  They are big enough in the legs and around the hip hugger waist, but are getting a bit short in the rise so her little butt crack shows if I don't make sure it is pulled up in the back.  So, I'm getting ready to start making her some mediums.

 Rita's Rump is a good free pattern.....the tabs are a lil short so you'd have to extend it, but i think it's generally a large size!

Both Sprout and Oneder were from the same maker and OS. I used both on DS and only added the snaps he needed. Oneder had a rather large wing span, which I loved. Sadly, the entire doddlebee website has been down for a while; I don't foresee it ever going back up =(
