Newborn Hybrid Fitted Cloth Diaper PDF Sewing Pattern

These extra soft and extra thirsty hybrid newborn fitted diapers fit from birth to about 16 lbs (7.25 kg). Minky is the recommended inner fabric and that makes for the most luxurious diaper your baby will ever wear. Wear coverless during the day at home or with a cover at night or during naps. The snap down front lowers the rise to accommodate umbilical cords during those first few days.

Sew up a few of these easy and fast diapers and have a stash full of cute fitteds for your bouncing baby girl or boy!
