Tutorial: Baby Wipe Cases

Finally! I remembered to take step by step pictures today when I was making a few! I've made so many different designs/styles. You really can do anything with them! My mom even gave me the bright idea to keep one in my car for messes. You don't need a baby for one! (: And, they make great gifts.

I want to thank Jill at Home Made by Jill for the original tutorial, and stencil! I mostly followed her tutorial, but I did mine a little bit different.

  • Stencil, it can be found here! Just right click and save the picture, then print it full size on 8 1/2 by 11
  • Glue Gun/ glue sticks
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Quilt Batting
  • Travel Wipe Case, I bought mine at Walmart for $1.18
  • Fabric of choice, I bought 1/4 of a yard and that makes about 4 cases.
  • Ribbon

    First place fabric right side down, and trace stencil onto the fabric; do the same with the batting and then cut them out!

    Next, start gluing the batting onto the wipe case. I suggest starting on the back side of the case, along the crease. It makes it much easier. Then trim any excess there may be.

    Once you have the batting glued and trimmed on both sides, begin gluing on the fabric. I also suggest starting in the back along the crease for this. DO NOT GLUE THE FABRIC TO THE BATTING. Only glue along the edge of the case. Make sure to not to glue your case together! I definitely made that mistake at first. Depending on your fabric, you may have to pull and stretch the fabric to fit perfectly.

    Once you've finished gluing the fabric, it's time to start with the ribbon! It doesn't really matter where you start with the ribbon, but I started with the bottom half on the backside of the case.

    Once you finish one side, begin on the next!

    And now you have a super cute baby wipe case!

    There's so many possibilities with these! I've added sequin letters, bows, and felt flowers. The tutorial for my felt flowers can be found here.

    Get to making! And feel free to share your designs.
