Tutorial Thursday
A big thank you to Sisters' Stuff for coming over to my little blog and showing use how to cover  a diaper wipe case. I can not wait to make one for Jaxson :)



I saw these covered diaper wipe cases when I was pregnant with my first baby and fell in love with them. I thought they were adorable and had to make them! I hope you find this tutorial useful!

Supplies:
plain wipe case
glue gun
pins
paper
pencil
batting
material
trim
ribbon/embellishments
scissors
ruler or measuring tape

Trace the bottom of your wipe case once and top of your wipe case twice. One of your top patterns will be the pattern for your batting.
Once you have your patterns for the top and bottom you will need to measure the bottom and top sides of your wipe case. Once you have the measurement you will need to extend the top and bottom drawing by the amount you measured so that it will cover the sides of your wipe case.
You will have three patterns .I labeled mine top, bottom and batting so that I could use my patterns again. *The batting pattern is your original top pattern. It will be the smallest. Pin your patterns to the batting and cut out your batting. Next, do this with your top and bottom patterns to cut out your material. Glue your batting to the top of you wipe case. Glue the material to the top of the case. Make sure it covers the sides. It doesn't have to be perfect because you will be putting trim around the edges. Do the exact same thing to the bottom of the case. Then add ribbons or any other "bling" you want to the top of your wipe case. You want to do this before you add the trim.
Glue trim to the top and bottom of the case. I like to start in the back so that the seams match up in the back and not in the front.
Here is the final product! So cute!
