How to make a diaper for a child's doll

Posted by  ·  September 19, 2008  ·  Last Updated: May 23, 2016

Okay this might seem like the craziest gift, but I tell you my little girl is going to adore a stack of these baby doll diapers. Really a diaper is the only ‘clothes’ our babies wear, if any.

These are very easy to make, but if you want a simple pattern so you don’t have to spend time figuring it out you may download the

Baby Doll Diaper Pattern

Instructions for making a diaper for a child’s doll:

Cut two pieces of fabric.  I used a soft flannel, in pink of course (in my daughter’s eyes there are no other colors).

Stitch the two pieces right sides together.  Leave about a 2 inch opening on the straight edge along the back for turning.

Clip corners and curves.  Turn the fabric right side out.  Whip stitch opening closed.  Sew velcro on the inside of the back flaps and on the outside of the front. I am confusing the you with the picture. Pretend it is flipped over.  Actually this is easy, just lay your diaper out and fold it up and you will see where the velcro goes.  It is probably a good idea to try it on your doll to get the correct velcro placement.

These only take minutes, including the time it takes to re-thread the sewing machine needle when the thread breaks sewing the velcro on (does anyone have any tips for this). My daughter aka “little mommy” will be in heaven with this gift


I’m off to think of some ideas for the boys!

    Does this diaper fit a Bitty Baby?
    I don't have the dolls I'm sewing for nearby to test the fit or velcro placement .

    I have made one diaper , based on your pattern. Going to how it fits a Baby Alive doll. The only thing I skipped is the hand sewing. Instead, I pressed the turning opening seam allowenses in and top stitched around the diaper. My grand daughter is going to love these new diapers.

    I love the pattern but couldn't get the tight fit for the bitty baby size. At what percent should I enlarge/decrease or print the pattern for the bitty baby size?

    Hi! Thanks for the DIY. I'm a big fan of dolls and I'm recently collecting them. Seeing that you do DIY's, I was wondering if you could do a DIY on baby doll swimsuits. I've looked everywhere online for a no sew, no glue, waterproof doll swimsuit. I can't seem to find one anywhere! If you could help me that would be great. 😃 Thank you!

    To sew the sticky side of Velcro on, I cover it with a thin tissue paper and just pull paper away after sewing. It worked good for me.
    • Sunday, December 6th, 2015
      What a great tip Hilda!

    To sew velcro, place a bit of wax paper over the velcro and then sew through it. The paper peels off and you won't break or snag the thread as you sew. Just wax paper that you buy at the store. I suppose tracing paper would work as well...as long as you can see through it to sew.

    Great pattern. Thanks so much

    I am going to try this but add PUL fabric (polyurethane laminated fabric)so it will be water proof because my oldest has a doll that actually wets, plus then they will look more like her baby sister's cloth diapers.
    • Sunday, August 2nd, 2015
      That is a great idea Shirley!

    Our granddaughter was finially baptized last easter sunday[2013] at easter vigil and wore the traditional white infant style gown with matching bonnet,lace anklets and white shoes and under the gown she had the white rubberpants and tee shirt.we gave her a doll dressed in the baptism gown and bonnet and it came with tights so i took the tights off the dolland put the dool size lace socks and white shoes on it.I found a pair of white doll size rubberpants and tee shirt and put them on the doll as well.the granddaughter was thrilled to get the doll dressed in the same outfit as she wore!

    To sew Velcro put tissue paper over the Velcro and your thread will not break or snag. Then remove paper. Happy sewing

    Our eight year old neice made her first communion last may and we gave her an 18 inch first communion doll that had the white tights with her dress.the neices parish requires the girls to wear a white cloth diaper and rubberpants under their tights so i made a cloth diaper out of regular diaper material and pinned it on the doll,then i found a pair of white new born size rubberpants and put it on the doll over the diaper then the tights over them.the rubberpants bunched up under the tights just like the neices rubberpants fit her.she was thrilled to get the doll!

      When our neice made her First Holy Communion at 15,we were lucky enough to find a First Communion doll with all most the same poofy communion dress,veil,lace anklets and white shoes on just like she wore!It had the cloth diaper,rubberpants and tee shirt all ready on under its dress and the rubberpants fit blousy over the diaper just like the neice's rubberpants fit over her diaper.

    Thank you! My daughter got a Baby Alive & I refuse to pay for disposable diapers for a DOLL! (preemie size baby diapers do work & are cheaper for anyone who reads this) I was just going to make my own template but Googled & found your site. Not only will I save money & feel better about the environment but they'll be cuter to boot! (my daughter already picked out purple flannel w/ butterflies)

    I am adding about an inch to the top & bottom of your template to more closely match the diaper that came with the doll - my paper towel version seems to fit her well. I'll also add a batting strip in the middle between the layers to make it more absorbent - paired with a pair of rubber pants (newborn size with the leg holes tacked in tighter), I think it'll work.

    Thanks again. I'll be back, I'm sure.
  29. Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

  36. Saturday, December 3rd, 2011
    Thanks for the pattern! After trying them out, it was nice to see that the pattern works for both my daughter's cabbage patch doll and her smaller dolls. I did put a strip of velcro across the whole front of the diapers though so they could adjust easier between the different sizes of dolls. Thanks again!

    I saw this pattern a long time ago and knew that I needed to make it for my girls. Well needless to say a few years later I got around to doing it. I used minky fabric that was in my scrap bin. I only did 1 side instead of 2 sided. I even shrunk the pattern a bit for the smaller dolls. It worked for the cabbage patch so I was really happy :)

    Thanks for a great pattern!
  42. Friday, September 2nd, 2011
    Thanks for this! I top stitched it after flipping it. It eliminated the whipstich and made it look a little more finished ;-)

    Thank you for posting this! It is perfect, and I can't wait to try this out. My daughter will love having diapers that actually will fit her dolls!
    As for the Velcro....I do a lot of sewing and I found that you need to just make sure you have a new (sharp) needle in the machine and it should sew the Velcro with no problem. I had that same problem with the thread breaking over and over again until I figured out I had a dull needle in the machine. Thanks again!

    Use a Titanium needle and a teflon foot to slide easier. Put the loop side up toward the foot. I've never had any problems sewing on velcro and I don't know why but I only but the sew on type not the stuff with glue on it.

    An excellent pattern. Love your simple instructions. I've made scores of real diapers and too many stage costumes to count. On the Velcro - buy heavy duty synthetic (nylon, polyester, viscose) thread and sew it on by hand. Yeah, I know. Shock and horror... I bought a machine so I wouldn't have to do this stuff by hand! but even with my heavy-duty machine, most velcro is simply too thick, too stiff, and the hook side of the tape is a nightmare. You'll need a sturdy needle and a thimble. But given how many times it'll take you to unsnarl your machine thread, it's about the same investment of time.

    If you have a LOT of velcro-type closures to do, it's worth your time and money to order Aplix brand hook and loop, which is slightly kinder to the machine and also outperforms Velcro on things that get opened and closed a bazillion times a day. :)

    I too, had a horrible velcro experience and am dying to know if you ever figured it out. Mine had to do with the sticky back type. Allow me to advise your readers: DO NOT USE THE STICKY BACK VELCRO. I promise, it will suck.

    I just made a couple of these! Very easy! I did decide to put the velcro on first before sewing together so if my velcro got messed up, it didn't look bad on the reverse. I also sewed a velcro strip so it can fit all our various babies. After turning, I top stitched all around to close the hole and give it a nice finish. I even appliqued some elmo faces on one for my son to match his own underwear. 2 thumbs from my kids!

    I put the printed pattern on my copier, enlarged and shrank it so there are different sizes. Have made 2 of regular size already. Great big smiles thus far. As for the issue with the needle breaking you have use a 16 gauge for stiffer and heavier fabrics . I used old receiving blankets to make 1 of them.

    I've just made 2 of these for baby Annabell as I am fed up of my daughter using her her own nappies and then throwing them away! I had to alter the pattern slightly, Annabell has a larger bottom than the pattern allowed for. I also cut out a duck and a teddy bear from felt to put on the front of each one. Thanks for the pattern and the idea, they were an instant hit and soooooo easy to make.

    Monday, October 19th, 2009
    This is a great idea! We have some like that at home. We actually cloth diaper the real kids, too, and as for a suggestion about the velcro...why not try snaps! You can use one of those hand-held snap presses from the fabric store and add some metal snaps. Or, you can add resin snaps - these kind are on cloth diapers. The resin snaps are much cheaper and super good quality but might be a little hard for little fingers to unsnap. We prefer snaps on our cloth diapers over the velcro. :)

    These are great, I going to make some for a friend for her 2nd birthday! A suggestion for the velcro though(I noticed you were looking for ideas to get around the tread breaking) use the gel type super glue instead of sewing them on! There nothing wrong with cheating when it comes to sewing!
  91. Tuesday, January 13th, 2009
    I made the mistake of buying my 20mo old a drink and wet doll for x-mas, and she lost the diaper that came with it. The replacement diapers are too expensive for how few you get and I don't want to go out and buy preemie diapers. This pattern is perfect! I can whip out tons of these in no time and it won't cost me an arm and a leg!
    Thanks so much!!!
  92. Sunday, December 28th, 2008
    Hello. Great tutorial :) I know these will fit a Bitty Baby sized doll but will it also work on a Baby Alive? My 4yo just recieved one and the way she will go through diapers with eating and drinking will be a lot :)

    As a preschool teacher - these are amazing!!! My little students often ask me to change diapers, hold, cuddle, feed their "babies" etc. I am going to make a STACK of these!!

    Thank you! It's hard to find doll diapers, and expensive too! I buy old dolls in need of TLC and then fix them up and give them to the nieces. I got the idea to make the diapers, but wasn't sure where to start.

    Note: you can make veloco a little longer on each side to adjust to babydoll size of sew velcro across the entire front piece.

    Thanks so much for the pattern. I have been searching for these type of diapers in the stores. I bought some similiar for my daughter 15 yrs ago. Can no longer find them and was having a hard time trying to draw the pattern myself. These will make great gifts for my great nieces. They love the one that I saved from 15yrs ago. Lots better than wasting $ on the disposalable doll diapers (unless for a baby alive which has to be changed after eating!!)

    Will this diaper fit a Lee Middleton Newborn Nursery doll (the kind you "adopt" from the nursery)? I think the doll is 19 inches long.

    Many thanks!

    Thank you for this pattern! Its inspired me to make a doll diaper bag and stock it with diapers, a wet bag, changing pad, and mini burp cloths. My girls are going to love these for Christmas. I've made the diapers already and they fit our Bitty Baby perfectly. I zig zag stitched the velcro on and didn't have any trouble. I also turned and top stitched the whole thing rather than hand sew the opening and I think it turned out great! Thank you!

    Thanks for posting this! My daughter keeps asking me to make her doll more cloth diapers, but I have been so lazy to draw a template myself. Thanks for saving me time!

    These are so cute. Thank you so much for the pattern! I have made 4 of them so far: 2 each for my 2 daughters, a blue and pink one for each girl. I had flannel scraps that were perfect. Thank you so much for all your patterns and links! I have made several things but hadn't commented before, and I wanted to rectify that. I appreciate you!

    Thanks so much for the cute tutorial! I just started making some dolls for my nieces for Christmas, so this will come in handy. As for the velcro sewing dilemma, Velcro sells a heat-activated adhesive version called FabricFusion. You just iron it on and it bonds permenently! Better than sliced bread if you ask me!

    Thank you for this!! I've been meaning to make some doll diapers and just haven't gotten around to it. Now I am inspired! I just found this site and like it already. Thanks again for the pattern and tutorial. :)

    This is a great idea. It reminds me of a gift that my grandmother gave to my little girls (her great-grandchildren). She has a lot of grandchildren and great-grandchildren so she must be creative and frugal with her gift-giving. One year she bought terry-cloth (I think she got it by the yard but you could also use cheap bath towels) and cut them in to little rectangles and smaller squares-they were baby doll bath towels and washclothes. My girls LOVED that these were REAL towels for their babies and I loved that my grandma was thoughtful enough to think of a gift for my girls, no matter how small.

    Faced with a toddler who kept wanting me to change invisible diapers on stuffed animals, and then claiming I hadn't done it, I made stuffed animal diapers out of polarfleece (cut shape, sew on velcro, hand to child). Voila! Diapers that are different colors so you can prove you've changed them.

    I'm planning on making several baby doll diapers for O for Christmas, so thanks for the tutorial!
