Make Your Own Cloth Diaper Wipes
What to do? What to do?
This is a question I ask myself a lot, and usually, I have too many ideas - more often than not my ideas require me to buy something new.
Well, not this time. My good friend Margaret gave me several yards of yellow terry cloth a while ago, and BAM! Some pretty good looking DIY cloth diaper wipes.
On the left is a sample of my 8x8 inch squares, on the left are 2 of my store bought cloth wipes, and behind it is the ever so lovely free terry cloth. 8x8 inches sure looks like a good size to me.
Now, this project was very elementary. I cut 8x8 inch terry squares.
Place wrong sides together (if terry cloth has a wrong side). Pin and sew the 2 pieces together, leaving an approximate 2 inch opening to turn the wipe right-side-to.
Cut the corners to get a better point.
Turn the cloth wipe right-side-to, and press.
Finally, topstitch all the way around, and love your new cloth wipe!
These guys also make great custom washcloths for your kids' bath, but I don't know how you can turn down wiping your kids tush with aliens or Star Trek.
