Baby Dolls and Diaper patterns

I have been looking for a simple baby doll pattern to make for my daughter for Christmas or birthday, and have yet to find what I'm looking for. Simplicity has a baby doll pattern that also has patterns for a doll diaper! Abigail has been changing her baby's diaper the past few weeks as a prelude to changing her own diapers, so I thought actual diapers for her baby would be great.

Since I haven't been able to find a doll pattern I like, I started looking for online patterns for diapers to put on our existing doll (a gift from her cousins' other grandmother). I found this simple looking pattern at Skip to My Lou. I need simple, because I'm not even sure I can run the sewing machine properly.

While looking for doll diapers, I thought I'd run a search for free baby doll patterns, too. Here's what I've found:

Our city just got our first JoAnn's store last week, and I've been looking through the Simplicity pattern books looking for a prairie doll pattern that my mama and grandma used when I was little. I've only been able to find one doll pattern (a baby doll) in the Simplicity book, but my JoAnn's doesn't have that pattern in stock yet.

Have you found a simple baby doll pattern that you like to use? I'm still considering ordering the Waldorf kit from Weir Dolls & Crafts.
