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!

* Rita’s Rump Pocket (RRP) pattern can be found at: ttp://handmadebyrita.blogspot.com/2007/10/classic-rrp- itas-rump-pocket-pattern.html  
Materials:*These materials will yield one (1) fitted cloth diaper.
(Don’t forget to use a diaper cover/soaker over thisdiaper)
- 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:
 1.
 
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.
 
 
3.
 
Cut out your new freezer paper pattern and place on top of two layers of your cotton fabric and cut aroundit.4.
 
Place both pieces of fabric together with “pretty” sides touching and pin to secure. With a marking devicemark about a 5” section across the “back” of the diaper (the “back” is the longest part of the diaper).*Notice the red line on the top edge of the diaper in this picture. I like to do this to remind myself NOT tosew across that area. I place a pin on both ends of the line so I know where to start stitching and where tostop.5.
 
Starting on one side of your marked line, stitch the two pieces of fabric together using a 3/8” seamallowance. Stop stitching when you have reached the other end of your marked line.
 
6.
 
Elastic placement:
Without cutting off a specific amount of elastic yet, take one end of the elastic andplace it on one of the designated notches and to the right of your seam allowance (see 1
st
picture). Select azig-zag stitch on your machine and secure that end of the elastic in place with several zig-zag stitches veryclose to each other. Pulling the elastic as hard as you can on the front of your machine, make sure to alsopull the fabric on the back side of your machine taut as well. The elastic has to be stretched out nicely onboth ends in order for it to gather nicely (see 2
nd
picture). Sew the elastic in place from one notch to theother using a zig-zag stitch. When you get to the other notch, secure the end in place with several zig-zagstiches close to each other (see 3
rd
picture) and then cut off excess elastic (see 4
th
picture). Repeat onother side of diaper.7.
 
Trim the rounded corners of the diaper to ~ 1/8” to reduce bulk.
