This tutorial is for a fitted cloth diaper. This diaper is made using a modified version of Rita’s Rump Pocket (RRP)pattern*, which is very popular among cloth diapering moms. This is a very easy and affordable cloth diaper tomake! The best part is that it is adjustable in size and will fit newborns babies, potty-training toddlers, andeveryone in between! Enjoy!
Materials:*These materials will yield one (1) fitted cloth diaper.

- Rita’s Rump Pocket Pattern-
see link above for location.
- Freezer paper- ½ yd of 100% cotton fabric-
I like to use flannel, but you can use old t-shirts and other cotton knits.
- ~1/2 yd. of ¼” braided or knit elastic-
Pins- Matching thread- Closure device:safety pin,Snappi(I buy mine from Sunshine Diapers), or Hook and Loop (Aplix/Touch Tape)Instructions:
Print outRRP patternand tape together as the map suggests.2.
Place completed RRP pattern on a sheet of freezer paper, trace (on the paper side not the shiny side of thefreezer paper) around the pattern making sure to transfer the notches from the original pattern onto yourfreezer paper pattern. I like to make the corners of the diaper a bit wider and rounder than what the RRPpattern suggests.
