Thanks to Angela for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I made my own dolly diapers (though my daughter thinks all her dollies should be naked) from a cheap Gerber prefold, and it was pretty easy - just cut one in half, cut them into 'contour' shapes sort of, and then put Velcro.
Here's a few more patterns to make doll diapers:
• Doll diaper pattern by ColorFool
• Preemie/doll diaper pattern by Goodness Gracious
• Doll Nappy by Wee Weka Patterns
And if you want to make diapers for your own baby, here's a few great links:
• Free Diaper Patterns from Zany Zebra
• Free Diaper Patterns from Wee Weka Patterns
• Free Diaper Patterns from Sew Your Own Diapers
