Diaper Wallet- A Tutorial

I am going to try my hand at yet another tutorial… and perhaps another one next week… and maybe the week after that…I might just go tutorial crazy!!

A diaper wallet is a handy little tool that can be used to hold diapers on one side and wipes on the other. Diaper wallets are fantastic for keeping in the car for those times when your diaper bag is running on empty. I like to slip my diaper wallet in my big mom bag… so the diaper doesn’t get all squished and wonky and covered with whatever food my child tossed in the bag when I wasn’t looking. And… if you’re really in a pickle, you can flip the wallet over and use it as a make shift changing pad. These are so incredible easy to make and are a great baby shower gift.

 The diaper pictured is a size 4. 
 Fold it up and tie it shut… and you’re ready to go!
Materials needed
12 in x 12 in square in main color
12 in x 12 in square in lining color
12 in x 5 in rectangles in main color for flaps (cut 2)
7 in ribbon (cut 2)
coordinating thread
choose your seam allowance… I did about 1/2 in

 1. Fold under 1/4 in hem (lengthwise) to the wrong side on flap. Press and sew the length with a zig zag stitch. Repeat with other flap.

 2. Layer lining and hemmed flaps. Right side of lining facing up, right side of flaps facing up.
 Place ribbon on top of layers with a small end sticking out. See pictures.

 3. Place main color fabric, right side down on top of layered pieces. Pin together. Be sure to pin the ribbon so it doesn’t slip when sewing. Stitch around all 4 sides, leaving a two inch opening for turning. I like for my opening to be in the middle of the bottom. Turn and press.

 4. Top stitch around the entire piece.

Add diapers and wipes and you’re good to go!

I hope this tutorial is helpful. My sis in law is the first person I saw make one of these. I would love to hear back from you if you decide to make a diaper wallet using this tutorial! If you’d rather let me do the work for you, check out my etsy shop!
