You know when you have a baby you ALWAYS need diapers and wipes on hand. And it can be a pain to lug everything around with you when you need to go change a diaper. That’s why I LOVE having these diapers and wipes cases. You can just grab it and do the diaper change-quick and easy. And also, they’re cute! Perfect baby shower gift idea.
I’ve made this to fit several diapers and a pack of Costco wipes nice and easily. (Because that’s what I always needed.) It’s so handy and it’s easy to make!
SOOOO easy. Takes like 20 minutes, you can use 2 fat quarters or 1/4 yard of fabric of 2 fabrics (read, not very expensive to make) and it turned out so great! It would also make a really good baby shower gift. Oooh, maybe even with some matching burp cloths!
So, here’s how.
Diaper and Wipes Case Tutorial:
- 1/4 yard or a little less of 2 fabrics (I used fat quarters, you could use just a normal 1/4 yard)
Print your pattern. You need two copies of the large piece. Cut and tape one of those large pieces to the flap piece to form the back piece. The leftover piece is your front piece.
Fold your fabric and lay the pattern on the fold so that the straight edge is on the folded part. Cut out 1 front and 1 back piece in each fabric for a total of 4 pieces.
Pin your velcro (about a one inch piece) in place. One piece goes on the front part of the main fabric. Just center it about 3 inches down from the top:
Now put right sides together on both pieces and sew them together around the sides and bottom:
**For further clarification I am adding in some more photos at this point. That’s why there a new and different fabric in these pictures.
Now, turn your inside fabric right side out and stick it down into the outside fabric, so that right sides are touching.
Put the inner fabric into the outer fabric.
Sew down that side until you get to the part where the front and back piece join across the middle. Sew across those two making sure that you are only sewing the front of the bag and not the back. (So you should be sewing 2 pieces of fabric, not 4.) Then sew across the middle and up the other side.
Push out all the corners and make it nice and smooth and then press it flat.
Now press the whole bag nice and flat. And you’re done!
Works perfectly to fit my pack of Costco wipes and several diapers inside:
Total time: 20 minutes
