Felt Baby Doll Diaper Pattern

Baby Doll Diaper Pattern

Before baby came, my daughter started to show more interest in her baby dolls. We had started buying things for the baby and she wanted some diapers for her dolls to wear. Well, instead of using real diapers which would have probably been shredded to pieces after a while, I whipped up some felt diapers for her to have. She liked these better because “they are prettier” than real baby diapers :)


I made them a size to fit a variety of dolls/animals. You can see them on Curious George, an American Girl doll,


and an Itty Bitty baby doll. They are really quick, simple, and cheap to make and you don’t even have to sew to make them.

Start by gathering your supplies:
-Print out the pattern here (I suggest printing on cardstock paper)

-Felt (I used the $.25 pieces from the craft store)
-Velcro (I used 3/4 inch, but you can use whatever size you like. If you have some that is too big, you can always cut it to fit as well).
-If not sewing it on, get some glue. I suggest fabric glue, but you could even hot glue it probably.


Fold your piece of felt in half and place the pattern on the fold.


Cut out pattern. Place wrong side up like this.


Grab your velcro and place them in the spots marked below. You can sew them or glue them in place. I put 4″of the soft part of the velcro in the middle and 1″ of the  scratchy part on the edges.


Now let your little one start diapering dolls and stuffed animals.

    Oh YES! My brother-in-law and his wife got my daughter a Baby Alive for Christmas, and it only came with one diaper which has since been ruined — and since I didn’t buy disposable diapers for my real children, I’m certainly not going to buy them for a doll. I’ll make a couple of these!

    How great are these!?! I was just telling hubby htta I need to make some up for our toddler for her babies. I know what I will be doing this weekend now. Thanks for sharing!

    Impeccable timing! Just this morning my daughter was using a real nappy on her Baby Alive, it ended up around dolly’s neck! These are the perfect solution, thank you :)

    This is fantastic! I’ve been meaning to make some cloth doll diapers for my daughter, and this look much easier than what I was thinking of. Thank you for sharing the pattern!

    I LOVE THEM!! My daughter has been secretly “borrowing” her little cousins’ diapers for months…but she is running out of doll sized diapers!!lol My question is your daughter’s dress!! i love it! did you make that too?

  6. says

    I just made these and they could not have been simpler. WOW. Thanks. BEST CHRISTMAS ever!

    You need to come up with some more easy crafts for christmas gifts for us who arent crafty. :)

    This is so simple and wonderful. my daughter could change baby doll diapers 1000x a day. if only she would show as much interest in her own potty habits!!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Loved it. I just made ten of them 5 for each of my girls. Then she wanted wipes so I used the unused fabric portions as wipes for her diaper bag. Love it.

    I’m trying to use glue to stick to velcro and felt Hot glue works ontil you try to use them then the fall off! Any suggections that really work?

      I would think fabric glue would be the best option for gluing. Maybe even a tacky glue? You could always hand sew it on real quick. If you use embroidery thread it will be able to handle more “wear and tear.” Please let us know what works for you in case someone else is in the same boat.

      Unfortunately I am not sure. Do you have one? If you do you could just cut it out of a paper towel and try it out. Then you won’t waste any felt. If its for a gift or something, you could always make it a bit larger to make sure.

    Does’nt the felt get icky when washed. I going to make a few of these but use left over fleece so it can be washed. Since diapers go in the washer, my LO will need thiers babies washed too.

    these are awesome – easy to make; easily adjusted to various stuffed animals and dolls. I made some this morning. Perfect for my granddaughters. Thanks for the great idea and sharing.

    Thanks for the pattern! The one measly diaper that came with Bitty Baby is kind of flimsy and sad. Now my kids each have a couple of new diapers for their babies.

    I love this; thank you. I don’t have the Bitty Baby dolls handy, as I’m making these for nieces. Is BB waist the same as the regular American Girl doll? I printed the pattern at 80 percent to get the scale line to = 1″, but on the bigger doll, the ends won’t get all the way to the middle of the front. It’s not easy to make presents for nieces when I don’t have the right dolls!
    Thanks for your advice. I can’t wait to get this figured out. Saw some really CUTE felt squares at Wal-Mart tonight. :)

      You can omit my question. I dug the pattern out from the recycle bin that I’d printed at 100 percent, and that worked, even though the line was longer than 1 inch.

        Hi Cathy :) I’m so glad it ended up working out for you! I’m sorry the printed pattern gave you this problem. After doing many pdf patterns, I have found that different pdf readers (not adobe) can sometimes change the size of pattern pieces, etc. Happy sewing! -Jess

    Oh, and if you have already sewed all the triangles together, try making the seam allowance smaller when sewing the rows together :)


  1. […] After looking around online and not finding any pre-made options I liked (or liked the price of), I decided to go the DIY route.  I wanted size-appropriate diapers that would hold up no matter how many diaper changes my daughter does in a day.  I chose to follow the pattern and tutorial on HappyTogetherByJess.com.
