For my nappy patterns I drew up a grid in a publishing programme, with numbers in every second grid. (an important step I then learnt was to PDF the grid before the next step). Print out the PDFed grid. I then drew the outline onto the grid, and from there drew it on the computer using the grid as a guide for shape. Not sure it was the best way, but it worked for me! Oh, and I used a free PDF programme (PDF995 or something). DH's new work laptop with new MS Office has built in PDF file option.
