I know there a lot of free patterns out there but which one or ones would you recommend to use for a fitted. Preferably os bc I will have most likely four in cloth. Ds who is already in cloth and my sister who will have three lo under 2 in march. I am in the process of making covers for the newb but for the older three I was looking into fitted diapers it also has to. Be a pattern turns and top stiches. I do not have a serger :-(

    I really like this arfy fitted pattern because you chose what size wings you want.

    Well, a fitted diaper is just that, a fitted to the size the baby is wearing now.  Do you mean an all in one that is a one size?

    For fitted diapers I love making the Little Comet Tails Happy Hipster pattern.  I've actually been making them as a fitted cover with a snap in liner (the cover is PUL both inside and out so it can be wiped out, then I put a snap in the center back of the inside layer to snap the insert into).  I am using petal shaped soakers that are 1 layer of super heavy microfiber from Kidsinthegarden.com, 2 layers of heavy bamboo fleece and topped with doe colored suedecloth so they don't get stains.  In a normal day, we only use 1 or 2 all-in-2 covers.  I made all of mine turn and topstitch because I don't like the way the fold over elastic absorbs wet.  Here is a picture of some the first ones I made.  I have since started using snaps instead of touch tape.  And I also added gussets to the leg openings of all the ones I have made.  Can't get the picture to rotate on here, even though it is on my computer!

    Sorry I can't help you with a one size pattern.  I haven't used any that I like so far.

    Wow, that is a nice pattern and the vidoe tutorial her friend made on Youtube is very detailed on making an Ain1.  I tried to link it here, but I can't get it to work.

    Have you tried the Onedersnap? It has a rather large wing span, but that's part of why I liked it so much. There's actually a comparison of patterns and diapers made from them HERE, though I suppose it would be helpful if there were something for size/scale comparison. Two that I posted (CookiePants and Onedersnap) look similarly sized due to scale but are actually quite different so I guess it can be a bit misleading. Perhaps I'll go through and make new dipes from all of the free patterns to update that a little more accurately. In the meantime, you can still get a look at the general shape of several patterns.
