Diaper and Wipes Carrier Free Tutorial!

There are a few places online that sell these great little diaper and wipes carriers, but if you can sew a straight line why not make one? They are so easy and quick to do, I make one to match every bag! They fit the little plastic wipes container (mine is from huggies) and about 4 diapers.
So here is how to whip one up!

Body cut
2 - 7.5 by 10.5

Lining cut
2 - 7.5 by 10.5

Flap cut
2 - 5.5 by 6.5

to angle the Flap, take your ruler and see the 45 degree angle line? place that on a side, and inch in from the corner. Trim off the end. Do the other side. The flap should be 6.5 high by 5.5 wide. If you don't want angled sides, use a quarter to round them!

Sew around the sides and bottom, trip the corners.

flip and make crisp corners. Press, then edge stitch around. Sew 2 sides and bottom right sides together on the lining and body pieces.

Find center on back side of body, mark. Fold flap in half, find center and mark. place your center marks together and pin. Sew flap on with 1/8th inch  seam.

Then place inside your lining (make sure right sides are together!) and sew, leaving a 3 inch space in the front to turn.

Turn, topstitch 1/8th from the top, so opening is closed. You're all set! Now you just have to add fasteners. I use velcro tabs.

They are sticky, but I add a little fabric glue to be extra sure. Place them where you want them (center close to edge) and go!
