While I'm away, I wanted to leave you all with the easy instructions for the cloth wipes I mentioned in this post.
Before the instructions, a little background...
I started using cloth wipes for Audrey about a month ago. At first, I bought Charlie Banana Organic Cotton Wipes, but after I realized how many I would need, and how expensive they were, I decided that I could probably just make my own wipes and save some money in the process.
I like the Charlie Banana wipes that I have, and I still use them. My draw to them was the organic cotton, but ironically, I like the fleece side of them better for wiping. This just added to my reasons for making my own.
Anyway, if you'd like to do the same, here's the simple step-by-step!
Gather your supplies:
- Cotton flannel
- Coordinating thread
- Measuring tape
First, cut your fabric into 9" squares. Since these wipes will be double-sided, choose 2 coordinating fabrics.
Pin your fabric together, right sides facing each other.
Sew together, leaving a small opening.
Trim excess around edges.
Pull the fabric right side out, through the small opening.
Fold the raw edges in and sew shut.
Top stitch around the border. I used a zig zag stitch.
Now you're done!
Even if you're not into using cloth wipes for your baby's bottom, these still make great wipes for cleaning up little hands and faces! And of course, there is no limit to the cute fabric combinations you could put together!
Hopefully I will be back to blogging later in the week once we are home, but we're also headed to North Carolina for a family vacation on Saturday, so overall, it's a very busy week!
I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
