The New Babe cloth diaper pattern has a sweet umbilical cord notch for babes birth to 10 lbs (4.5 kg). The PDF features a professionally drawn digital pattern and step by step instructions.
A brand new babe has a different shape that an older, rounder babe. This pattern will fit those early weeks best, before many other fitteds and one size diapers will. While you need not sew dozens and dozens of these newborn sizes, they will be worth your while since they will fit properly to contain what a diaper should ;) These are also perfect for life size baby dolls.
There are two options for the elastic around the legs, ruffled or cased. A 1/4" (0.64 cm) seam allowance is included, as well as instructions for using a regular sewing machine or a serger.
