My Mock Gdiaper Patterns, information. Read before printing the Patterns!

UPDATED!!!! 1-6-2014

So if your reading this you are probably wanting my FREE Mock Gdiaper Patterns.  I have included the link to my other blog post where you can print the free patterns on this blog post, but please read this post as well, especially before printing, read this post, then go and print the patterns or you may not print the patterns correctly!

These are my patterns I created myself, please do not sell the pattern, however, it is ok to post this link on other blogs & websites.

This is my reproduction/imitation/mock/faux (my version) of gdiapers.

These are my Patterns for homemade Gdiapers, it took a lot of time to make these patterns, because the measurements are hard to get because of the shape of the diapers, & the medium & large I have are very used, one is the old version & 2 are the new versions & the different versions are different sizes, & it’s especially hard to make these since I do not have a size tiny/newborn, or a size small gdiaper. My son is skinny; he is 16 months & only 20 pounds & is in a large gdiaper. The Gdiapers have always been a little smaller on him than the weight range, so when I am cutting my fabric I add some inches to mine, so he can wear them longer, & I even added a preemie, & extra large gdiaper pattern too, because I do want to have at least one more child & I will definitely be making some of these for my future baby/s too. & there is no pattern out there for tiny or extra large Gdiapers.
I’m only including the patterns for preemie through Large, if you want the Extra Large &/or 2X Large use the measurements in the size chart below to create them.


Heres the link to my other blog post where you can print the free patterns, but please read this post as well, especially before printing.

Use this tutorial for my patterns. I haven't had time to make a complete tutorial yet.
& she has an amazing tutorial!

Weight in pounds for each size gdiaper
Preemie: 1-5 lbs
Newborn: 6-10 lbs
Small: 8-14 lbs
Medium: 13-28 lbs
Large: 22-36 lbs
Extra Large: 34-50 lbs
2X Large: 48+ lbs

When PRINTING the patterns make sure the PAGE SCALING is set to NONE, & it is NOT set to AUTO-ROTATE & CENTER PAGES. If the settings are not correct it will not print the correct size.

Also, when I make these I reverse the back & front, because I like them to Velcro in the front & not in the back like the regular Gdiapers do. The measurements are the same when you change it like I do; however, I just switch the back casing to the front & the front casing to the back. Also, I do not use Elastic in the waist areas, but I put the measurements below for them if you would like to put elastic in the waists.

Homemade Gdiaper measurements, not including ½” of a seam allowance, or bigger/smaller (whichever you prefer). (Measurements do not include seam allowance!!) I based these measurements off the normal Gdiapers.

  3. I really want to make these as well. I have been searching and searching for weeks and weeks to try and find measurements for the gdiaper! I would LOVE the pattern :-) Did you make your own liners as well? I am so greatful for this post. My son is 10 weeks and would be in transition between small and medium. I want to cloth diaper because it is so much more affordable, and making my own would make it that much more affordable for me. If you could e-mail me the pattern, I would be so so very greatful. jessyka.cain@gmail.com

  4. I've been debating on making a mock gdiaper for my little one. She has a few newborn contour inserts and covers that she is going to be out of soon, and I don't want to spend more money on contours and covers.... So, this might be an awesome project that can be customized for her (my) favorite colors. lol!
    Can you send me the patterns? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance! RebeccaR.A.Nelson@gmail.com

  5. Just finished my first mock diaper. Thanks for sending the pattern :) I made a few tweeks and took some ideas from the tutorial you linked (which also had another pattern link) I hope to see your tutorial up soon!

    One question, have you used other fabrics for your diapers? I did my trial with scraps... a mix of cotton and cotton knit (knit on the tummy and leg bands). I'm trying to decide if I want to try to only use cotton on everything. I guess I'll make another trial to see. lol!

    Thanks again for the patterns!

  6. I just wanted to check to see if you got my email. I patterned a large off of the real g's my daughter is currently wearing, and I can do that for small and medium, but it's the other sizes I want to play with. Thanks! Peggy

  8. I would really love your patterns! I'm becoming a foster parent and I want to cloth diaper, but since we won't know anything about the children we get until we get them, I have to have diapers in every size! You can guess how much that can cost! So I've decided to make them myself. Can you please send me the pattern? Pryialaday@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!

    2. Hi. I was wondering about the leg elastic. Can 1 1/2" possibly be enough elastic for a preemie and a 2XL? I can only wrap 1 1/2" of elastic around 2 fingers, fully stretched. Please help!

      Delete
    3. i would use 9" of elastic for small and medium. then try going up an inch for every size that goes up.

  9. Im confused on where we should add seam allowences!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. what length should the leg elastic be for each size? 1 1/2 inch for each does not look right. I am making the newborn size right now.I was thinking 7 or 8 inches for this size?

  11. Thank you for sharing this! I appreciate it. :)

  12. Hello! You mentioned you didn't use elastic in the waist? Do you mind saying why that is? Do you feel it did just as well without it? Thank you for your answers! It would be nice not to have to use elastic there for cost savings:) - Lesia

  13. I'm wondering the same thing as Lesia... If you encase it anyways what use do elastics then have? It can't stretch any more, could it?
