After looking around the net for patterns and ideas, (and trying out a couple of them) I came up with my own design, as it seemed to work best for me.
First, here are the links that I found:

Materials I used:
lining fabric (an old white sheet)
fusible fleece for reinforcement
|Cut a 18x56 cm piece of the exterior fabric|
|Cut a slightly longer piece of the lining fabric (1-2cm longer)|
You will need the extra cm to stitch the bottom part.
|Cut two pieces of the exterior and lining fabrics. I cut them 10x14|
|Stitch a piece of velcro on the lining of the flap.|
|Right sides together, stitch the lining on exterior of the flap. Velcro should be facing in. Turn inside out and iron.|
|Iron fusible fleece on the wrong side of the exterior fabric. Fold in half, right sides in, and stitch the sides. Turn inside out and iron.|
|Pin the flap in the centre of the body, right sides facing, and stitch along the top 0.5cm..|
|After you stitch the flap on the exterior fabric, flip it over and mark where you need the other piece of Velcro on the front. Pin and stitch in place.|
|Fold lining fabric in half and cut where it folds. Stitch along the long sides and, right sides facing, insert the body of the case in the lining.|
Stitch all around the top about 0.5cm.
|Pull out the lining.|
|Now, fold and stitch the bottom part of the lining.|
|This is what it looks like after it is sewn closed.|
|And here's the whole pouch, before the lining is inserted in the body.|
Now insert the lining in the exterior, tuck the corners in, and top stitch about 0.5cm from the top.
|And the pouch is ready! Here it is with three nappies in it.|
