DIY travel wipie case tutorial

How CUTE are these wipe cases! They are SUPER easy to make, no sewing needed, just a little hot glue! They are inexpensive to make, just a few dollars depending on what you may already have at home! These are GREAT for gifts, women love them! They are also a perfect addition to a custom diaper bag!

Here's what you will need:

Fabric- I just use 100% cotton quilters fabric, you can get "Fabric Quarters" at your local fabric store or Walmart for around $1! You will only need one and will hae some left over!

Travel wipe case- My Walmart sells the huggies one for $1.18 each! You can certainly use any kind you like :)

Ribbon/Trim of your choice

Hot glue gun


Spray adhesive (optional)

light batting or felt (optional)

Alrighty to start, I used my embroidery machine and customized the fabric before hand.. You can do any customizing you would like, add rhinestones, ribbons, flowers, ect.. the possibilities are endless!

I am using the Huggies brand case, it has a pop up door in the middle that is not flush with the rest of the case, so I found adding a piece of batting or felt on top will give you a nice smooth result.

Spray adhesive on top of case and lay your batting down.

Cut the excess batting around the edge.

Spray top of batting with adhesive and lay top fabric and smooth down. Cut away the excess fabric, not too close though, you will trim up in the next step.

Repeat for the bottom, no need to add batting to the bottom b/c its flat.

Now take your hot glue and run a strip along the edges, NOT on the edges, you need room to cut away fabric and it DOES NOT need to be perfect b/c you are going to cover this part with your ribbon or trim. Smooth fabric down from top to bottom. When you get the the 4 corners, just smooth out any wrinkles you have using your fingers, be sure to do this while your glue is hot so it smooths nicely.

Now trim away your excess fabric, cut a few centimeters from the edge so when you add your trim it doesnt show.

Start from the back middle with your ribbon, run a line of glue around the edge and press your trim down, all around until you are back where you started! Repeat for bottom and VOILA!

This only took me about 10 minutes to make and I was pausing taking pictures, lol! Leave a comment with a link to your pictures if you decide to make one of these!

Enjoy! Happy Crafting!
