OK, I am NOT very good at explaining things, (I'm a very visual person) so please forgive any confusing directions and feel free to ask for clarification.
All I did to make the fleece soaker was:
1) Trace around a pull on pattern.
I have Bummis nylon pull on pants, so I traced these, adding about an inch around the perimeter because I wanted it a little bigger to go over a big nighttime diaper.
I traced with the fold of fabric at the crotch.
2) Cut out 2 of the exact same pattern.
3) I did a serge stitch around both pieces to attach them, so it was like working with one thick piece of flannel.
4) Sew the sides together -- I didn't leave a whole 5/8" seam, I did as small as I could do easily.
5) Then I made casings at each leg hole and the waist. A big enough casing for my safety pin to fit through. (after I sew the casing, I push the safety pin through the casing with the elastic attached to it.)
6) Tack down the ends of the elastic very well. Sew casing all the way closed.
7) Turn it right side out, and Voila!! It's done.
