This tutorial is a retake on my first Diapers and Wipes case. I’ve had a few readers ask how to make it with a strap, so today I’m taking the original diapers and wipes case pattern and adding a strap to it. It’s really simple. Go ahead and make yours with or without the stap-whichever you prefer. Here’s the new version:
And here’s the original:
Diapers and Wipes Case Pattern and Tutorial:
About 1/3 yard of fabric of 2 coordinating fabrics
Fabric for strap or webbing (your choice)
There are slightly more detailed instructions on the original post. Please refer to it as needed.
Start out by cutting out your pieces as instructed on the pattern. You will have 2 pieces from each fabric.
Sew a small strip of Velcro to the back piece of the inner fabric and the front piece of the outer fabric a couple of inches from the top edge:
Now, grab your two outer pieces and place them right sides together and sew around them:
Do the same with the inner fabric.
Turn the inner fabric right side out and tuck it down into the outer fabric:
Now, either make a strap (as described in this post) or use canvas webbing like I did. You are going to insert your strap so that the ends stick out just a little bit on either side of the carrier like this. It’s nestled between the two layers of fabric:
Make sure it’s not twisted inside the bag. (The strap is all tucked down in there.) Pin the ends in place good.
Sew around the carrier (again, more pictures of this on the original post) starting here:
Go across the middle catching only the front pieces, not the back:
And up the other side:
Now turn everything right side out and press it nice and smooth.
Fold under the top edges and press. Then stitch across:
And you’re done!
Now, the beauty of this guy, and the reason I created the original one, was that I could fit a nice, big, fat pack of wipes in there like these Simply Right ones from Sam’s Club:
I love using those big packs of Simply Right wipes. They’re such nice wipes-I love them because they aren’t too thick so they wipe easier. And there’s SO many in a pack. They are so handy and last forever, but I wanted something that would fit them easily that I could carry. This carrier is designed to fit them.
I’ve also got a few Simply Right size 3 diapers in there. It should fit 2-3 of those. And you know what’s great about all of this? You’re going to save money too because you’re buying these Simply Right diapers and wipes from Sam’s Club. Up to $392 a year! You know what I’d buy with that savings? Fabric. Then make more diaper carriers. Win win right?
Here’s my little guys showing off his Simply Right Diapers:
He’s a ham. Gotta love him.
