Diaper Pattern Reviews

Read reviews or add your own and help others make their own cloth diapers, pads and knit covers for cloth diapers. This website will help you find the easiest patterns to sew, the best diapers for overnight, or the right fit for your baby. Before, reviews were scattered over dozens of message boards. Reading them took lots of searching, registering at boards you never went back to, and reading duplicate threads buried deep in unrelated topics. Now you can find everything in one place, easy to access, easy to add, and easy to use!
Check out the resources section and you'll find links to free cloth diaper patterns, free knit and crochet diaper cover patterns, places to get your supplies like fabric and yarn. You can even find a list of message boards where you can chat, find some help, and show off your creations. We also have a comprehensive list of cloth diaper patterns available for sale, with descriptions of each so you can find the one you need. Even if you've never sewn before, you can create the stash of your dreams, and we can help. Stay up to date with the latest! Read our blog!

We've collected lots of info on getting started, reaching your customers and increasing sales in the resources section that may be helpful to you! You can also read and leave reviews for retailers that sell commonly needed supplies. If you don't see a particular category or business, let us know and we'll add it. If you've had a good (or not so good) experience then leave a review. The WAHM community is at it's best when we are helpful to each other!

This was my first ever pattern and I just LOVE it.  You just can't go past how clear the directions are, and how many different options the pattern has.  I made my first ever diaper using this pattern, and it was perfectly functional.  And has survived through two children!  You can make pretty much every type of diaper using this pattern - covers, fitteds, pockets, AIO, etc etc.  I think this is a pattern everyone should own, and highly recommend it as your first pattern choice.  The directions are so through, by the time you've finished you'll know how to sew diapers!

Diaper Pattern Reviews Interview with Samantha, Owner of Little Comet Tails
What type of patterns do you sell?  I sell patterns from birth to potty and beyond. Everything from fitted sized diapers to one size AI2's to pants that will actually fit. (and if you make them from wool interlock or poly fleece, you can use them as covers too!) 
What sets your pattern(s) apart (your niche)? Unlike most other patterns that are designed around a size standard and end there, that's where I start. I create the pattern from scratch, scale to the standard, then test on hundreds of babies and toddlers and redraft for the best fit in each size before they are ever released.

What was your inspiration to create your pattern(s)? Little Comet Tails came about as an outlet for me to be creative while making some extra money as a full time stay at home mom. I started sewing my own diapers when my son was 3 months old. Before he was born I stocked up on a complete stash of newborn and small cloth diapers thinking I was set for at least 6 months, Thomas had other ideas. He grew to over 15lbs at 10 weeks eliminating my newborn stash. As the smalls were starting to get tight I sat down and calculated how much it would cost making my own vs buying some already made. Taking into consideration that I had an almost 20lb 2-1/2 month old, I decided to sew my own so I could not only save some money, but I could customize the fit. I drafted the Little Starter Cloth Diaper Pattern in 2005. I started out selling finished products and I kept getting asked what pattern I used to make them, because they fit so well. As a busy mom of two, I decided to sell those patterns (and continue creating new ones) so the frugal and crafty parents (and grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends) can make their own.

On a scale of Novice, Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced where would you classify your pattern(s)? While most of my patterns require some knowledge of basic sewing techniques, they all include detailed instructions so that even the beginner can follow. If I had to pick, most would rate on a "Basic" level.

Does your/Do your pattern(s) require usage of a serger or specialized stitching? All of my patterns can be sewn on a regular sewing machine, or with a serger, instructions for both are included.
