Baby wipe case

I've been wanting one of those spruced up baby wipe cases and decided to try making my own this weekend! It was actually easier than I was expecting, and no sewing involved - just hot glue!

To start I took my travel baby wipe case and traced it onto some felt, then folded the felt into thirds so that when I cut it out I had 3 pieces of felt shaped like the wipe case.

I then cut out my fabric slightly larger than the felt.

First I hot glued two of the layers of felt together.  Then glued those two layers onto the top of the plastic wipes case.  Then I started hot gluing my fabric to the edge of the wipe case, stretching the fabric and gluing small sections at a time. It looked like this when I finished -

I did the same thing with the bottom, but only used one layer of felt under the fabric, since I didn't have that little door to cover up on the underside.  Then I started hot gluing ribbon around the edges to cover up the raw edge of the fabric, again working in small sections -

I started and ended in the back and heat sealed the ends of the ribbon to keep them from fraying -

and the finished wipes case - (I added a couple strips of ribbon and a bow to finish it off)

The underside is solid purple print-

This turned out so cute, I can't wait to make more to have in the glove box, diaper bag, give as baby gifts, so many possibilities!!


  1. I love that idea! I may have to use it for my little sister's future baby.

  2. Adorable! I will have to make one too. So cute!
