Diaper Wipes Case Tutorial

Materials Needed:

(Note: There are three different styles listed below - solid, two-tone, and contrast. See below to see how much fabric is needed for the style you are making).
  • Solid: 9" x 10 1/2" piece of fabric
  • Two-tone (front & back): 9" x 5 1/2" each fabric, sewn together with 1/4" seam
  • Contrast (strips): 3 pieces 2" x 10 1/2" of each fabric, sewn together with 1/4" seams
  • One travel-sized Huggies wipe case (I found them at Wal-Mart for $1)
  • Batting - 9" x 5"
  • Decorative ribbon (across front) - 1/4 yd
  • Decorative trim - 1 yd
  • Embellishments - as desired
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors

1. After cutting out fabric, sew right sides together if necessary. Press any seams. 2. Place Huggies case on batting and trace pattern. I actually traced the case on to a piece of paper and then cut out the paper to use as a pattern piece that could be pinned to the batting. Cut out batting and hot glue to top of Huggies case. WHENEVER USING HOT GLUE, ONLY DO A LITTLE AT A TIME SO GLUE DOESN'T DRY BEFORE FABRIC/RIBBON IS APPLIED.3. Hot glue fabric to top and bottom of case.4. Trim excess fabric (particularly around corners and case ends where case opens up). I like to cut a u-shape in the fabric at the ends.5. Glue down edges of fabric to case. Don't worry...this doesn't have to look pretty because it gets covered up with the decorative trim. See...not very pretty:

6. Glue decorative ribbon (trim excess) and any embellishments across top.

7. Glue decorative trim around edges. When you get to the ends, make a u-shape to continue going. REMEMBER...LITTLE BY LITTLE IS THE BEST WAY I FOUND TO HOT GLUE. When all the way around, I like to put fray check on the ends of the ribbon.

YOU ARE DONE!!! FINISHED PRODUCT: LOTS OF DIFFERENT OPTIONS, SO HAVE FUN!! LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ANY OF YOUR CREATIONS, SO PLEASE LINK BACK TO SHOW ME!

  12. I finally posted my pic of the containers that I made. I don't sew (yet) so mine aren't as fancy with the fabric, but I really like how they turned out. Thanks again for the idea and great tutorial!
