Green Beginnings Cloth Diaper
Green Beginnings Cloth Diaper
Green Beginnings Cloth Diaper

Pattern Description:

The quick-sewing, trim-fitting Green Beginnings Diaper is the perfect cloth diaper for your little one! In sizes to fit from just born all the way through potty time, this pocket diaper can be sewn as a waterproof AI2 diaper using PUL (polyurethane laminate) and a polyester inner, or as a non-waterproof fitted diaper using your choice of cotton or cotton-blend knit or woven fabrics.

The diaper is designed to fit just under the belly in the front and slightly higher in the back. Options for fastening include hook & loop or poly resin snaps. Instructions are included for a quick-drying, tri-fold soaker.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sizes Newborn to Large (6 to 40 pounds)


  • For AI2 (all-in-two) waterproof diapers: PUL and polyester microfleece or microchamois or suedecloth
  • For fitted (non-waterproof) diapers: Cotton knit or woven fabrics (Wovens will result in a smaller diaper.)
  • 1⁄2 yard of outer fabric + 3⁄4 yard of inner fabric (1 yd. of 59" wide fabric will yield 8-12 diaper cuts.)

You Will Also Need:

  • Size 20 polyresin snaps or 11/2" hook & loop (recommended brands are Aplix or Touchtape)
  • 3⁄8" Lastin clear elastic or 1⁄4" polybraid elastic
