This post is for all you non-sewers. And anyone who has a baby in their life..
Find fabric scraps and in a short afternoon you can create this fun wipes case. Make one to match your diaper bag or make one for a new “Mom” friend.
- Fabric – this is a great project for scrap fabric. Requires 2 pieces approx 10″ x 8″
- Trim – 3/8″
- Small piece of ribbon, bias tape – approx 2″ long
- Craft foam – “Creatology Fun Foam” works great
- Empty wipes case
- Sharpie / pen for tracing
- Tracing paper
- Glue gun
- Spray adhesive
Note — Spray the adhesive in a WELL ventilated area. Do not spray the glue on your beloved cutting mat!!
Step 1 – Prep your foam. Place tracing paper on top of your wipes case. Move inwards 1/8″ and trace/follow the outside edge. This is the pattern for your foam. Place on the foam, pin and cut 2 pieces.
Step 2 – Adhere the foam to wipes case. Be careful where you use the adhesive spray – spray in a well ventilated area and on a cardboard/disposable surface. Spray the wipes case and stick the foam down. Gently press until it is firmly held down. Repeat for the other side.
Step 3 – Spray the foam on the wipes case and your fabric. Lay the fabric on the wipes case top and press. Gently press/pull the air bubbles out. Work fast. If you have a light fabric, make sure your hands are CLEAN.
Step 4 – Trim down your fabric. The fabric should be glued down around the wipes case sides. Carefully trim to the wipes case edge. Use OLD scissors. The glue may ruin a good pair of scissors. Stay away from your sewing scissors!
Step 5 – Cut a small piece of bias tape, ribbon, etc and glue it down. You will fold this around the trim and cover the raw edges [beggining and ending edges of the 3/8″ trim]. Glue the trim around the edge of the wipes case. This should cover the raw edges of the fabric.
Step 6 – Repeat and glue the trim around the bottom edge. Finish by wrapping the double fold binding around the raw edges and glue.
Voila!! Now you have a great wipes case to show off.
Have a great day.
