D.I.Y. boutique wipes case tutorial

by @according2kelly on June 9, 2009

lately, my crafting time is either very limited or totally non-existant… which makes sewing anything completely out of the question. but giving up crafting cold turkey is definitely not an option. so, i’ve had to to devise some crafts that i can do standing up, holding a baby, in a very short time period. luckily, you can never have too many fancy-nancy boutique style wipes case – especially if you don’t have to pay the fancy-nancy boutique style prices…

D.I.Y. boutique wipes case tutorial
supplies needed: one travel wipes case, some batting, a fabric scrap, mod podge & sponge brush, trim and hot glue.
time needed: 1/2 hour
crafting expertise: beginner… if you can wield a glue gun, you’re good to go.

Okay..so...I have a question. Am I doing something wrong?? Every time I try to mod podge the fabric to the batting, the mod podge goes through the fabric (making it stiff) and does not stick to the batting at all. Help, please!!

Your tutorial on the boutique wipey case is the very best I have seen. I am confident now that I have printed off your tute that I can tackle these. I have been making mitered corner receiving blankies for the newborns in the neighborhood, but this looks so much cuter. Thanks so much for sharing with us. Happy Easter too, Nettie

Hi I LOVE this craft I just tried it before I saw you tutorial and the video I watched on youtube.com did it without adding batting and mod podge and glued the ribbon all the way around.... Well lets just say it was not as pretty as I thought it would be...Yours is so much better and makes much more since. I am going to the store to get all my materials so I can try it your way...by the way I LOVE your whole website!!! I will let ya'll know how it goes wish me luck!

Perfect! This is exactly the easy type of craft that I'm looking for... easy but something that would be a very welcome gift. Plus it gives me something fun to make with all the 1/2 yard funky fabrics I have! .-= Marsha´s last blog ..chocolate bugs =-.

Give it a try now. I'm in the process of "moving" my blog, so things have been crazy. I "think" I've fixed it!
