What’s the Project? This cute diaper clutch pattern is easy to sew, great for boys or girls and is super handy for mom (or dad) to carry in the diaper bag. The diaper clutch easily fits several diapers along with a pack of wipes for easy grab and go for diaper changes.
This diaper clutch pattern post was one of my very first on the blog when most of you weren’t here. So I wanted to bring it to life again because it is one of my VERY favorite posts!
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 a cute diaper clutch to grab when you need to do a diaper change or just to take in the car with you on quick errands and things. You can just grab it and do the diaper change-quick and easy. And also, they’re cute! These make a perfect baby shower gift idea. Here’s a simple to make Diaper Clutch Pattern:
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!
Make a million of them!
Diaper and Wipes Holder Pattern:
- 1/4 yard or a little less of 2 fabrics (I used fat quarters, you could use just a normal 1/4 yard)
Diaper Clutch Sewing Instructions:
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.
Turn inner fabric right side out:
Put the inner fabric into the outer fabric.
Flip your fabric over and begin sewing the 2 pieces of the flap where shown in this photo:
Here it is in my sewing machine just as I am starting to sew:
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.
Here’s a video showing the process. This is the same process for about 5-6 tutorials on my site, so I’m showing it with the mini messenger bag in the video but it works the same for all of these different tutorials.
You are leaving the top of the flap open so that you can turn it there:
Turn it right side out. First, reach in and pull out the inner fabric:
Then turn your outer fabric:
Now tuck your inner fabric down into the outer part:
Until it is all inside like this:
Push out all the corners and make it nice and smooth and then press it flat.
Fold the top opening under and top stitch it shut:
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! And makes such a wondeful baby gift!
