Teri, it seems that I might be able to make something like this without a pattern. Would you describe how they are cut? I imagine two rectangles, rounded at one end. Approximately 2 inches by 3 inches? 3 inches by 4 inches? What's the length of your elastic? I have some pretty fleece leftover from making baby hats and footies.
