Container For Baby Wipes

It can be fun to make your own baby wipes container. It’s a great way to reuse an old container, and it also gives you an opportunity to add some personal touches. You may need to buy a few materials in order to complete this project, but these are things that will last you through many projects and can be used again if you choose not to use the wipes container as intended!

This

is tutorial shows how to make a cute little container for baby wipes.

What You Need:

1 x baby wipe contaThiner with lid (we love these ones from the Container Store)

1 x craft knife or scissors

1 x ruler or measuring tape

Gather your supplies.

Gather your supplies:

  • fabric (choose a soft, absorbent cotton)
  • scissors
  • craft glue (the stronger the better, as you’ll be cutting through multiple layers)
  • ruler and pencil to mark lines on your fabric if you need help visualizing where to measure or cut. You can also draw out your own design with a pencil and ruler or use a stencil if you have one that fits the shape of the wipes container you’d like to make. If not, no worries! Freehanding it is perfectly fine too. And if all else fails, there are plenty of online tutorials that’ll walk you through every step of this project step-by-step. If your pattern doesn’t match up perfectly at each corner, don’t worry—we’re going back over everything later anyway! Fabric pencils are optional but helpful for drawing on lightweight fabrics such as cotton; otherwise just use regular pencils and an eraser for corrections if necessary. A paintbrush helps apply glue more evenly without leaving brush marks behind; alternatively just spread some glue directly from its container onto the fabric using fingers or an old credit card instead (this works great when making small patches). A craft knife or scissors will make cutting out pieces easier than simply tearing them out by hand; however we recommend not using sharp objects unless absolutely necessary since they could potentially cause injury due accidents involving young children around those who may play with these items regularly like our friends here at [YOUR COMPANY]. Don’t forget about safety precautions either–always keep any items used during this process away from little ones’ reach until AFTER crafting has been completed so no accidental injuries occur due carelessness during cleanup time afterward!

Take the container and peel off any labels or tags.

Next, remove the lid of your container with a screwdriver. Then, use a razor blade to carefully remove the label. Once you’ve removed all of the paper or plastic from your container (including any residue), take a paper towel and wad it up into a ball. Dip this in water and clean off the inside of your container.

If there is any residue from peeling off the label, you can clean it with alcohol.

Use a cotton swab to apply alcohol in a well-ventilated area. The fumes are strong and may irritate your skin, so take precautions when handling this material.

You can also use rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol instead of regular rubbing alcohol (which contains additives). Just make sure that whatever product you use does not contain acetone as an ingredient; acetone will dissolve the plastic on your wipes container, which isn’t good!

Do not use isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol; these are both extremely flammable and dangerous to work with!

You will be making a template for the fabric that will go on your container, so find something that is about the size of your container as a reference.

Now that you have your container, it’s time to cut out the fabric. You will be making a template for the fabric that will go on your container, so find something that is about the size of your container as a reference. You can use a ruler or other straight edge to draw straight lines from corner to corner and create a square shape. If you don’t have anything else around, use a dry erase marker or tailor’s chalk so it will come off easily later on!

Once you’ve got your fabric cut out, take off all the extra bits with scissors until only two edges remain: one long edge and one short edge. The long side should be aligned with one of your painted sides (or fronts), while the short side should match up with an unpainted side (or back). Now just apply some glue onto these two edges before gluing them together! We recommend using hot glue because it dries quickly but still allows enough working time—and it’s super easy to clean up if you accidentally glue yourself instead of what you meant too!

Lay out the fabric and fold it in half widthwise.

Lay out the fabric and fold it in half widthwise. Place one end of your ruler on the edge of your fabric, and make a small mark where you want to cut. Then, fold the fabric again lengthwise so that both ends meet at this point. Now you have a rectangle with four sides: two long ones (the original length) and two short ones (the original width). Lay it out on a flat surface with all its edges even, making sure there are no folds or wrinkles in any direction.

Now use your ruler to mark along each side of your new rectangle at 1/2″ intervals—this will give you six equal sections per side when unfolded later on! The bottom right corner should not be included in this measurement; just draw lines from top left down to bottom right instead so we get five sections on each side after unfolding!

Draw some guidelines for where you want to put your design elements. Use a dry erase marker or tailor’s chalk so it will come off easily later on.

Draw some guidelines for where you want to put your design elements. Use a dry erase marker or tailor’s chalk so it will come off easily later on.

Using a ruler, draw lines parallel to the edges of your wipes container that are about 1/2 inch from each other, like this:

Next, draw horizontal lines across the top third of each square. These will be used as guidelines for placement of our design elements (more on those in Step 3). I chose 6 squares wide by 10 squares tall because my container was 10″ x 13″. That gave me 60 square inches to work with, which worked out perfectly for both my patterned paper and coordinating solid papers (and left plenty of room for writing notes!).

It’s time to start tracing the design parts onto your fabric. For this design, we started with the circles, more or less following the guidelines you drew earlier. Find something circular to trace around if you can’t draw a circle freehand without it looking lopsided!

Use a ruler to make sure your circles are all the same size and keep them evenly spaced. If they’re not even on top of each other yet, use a pencil (or chalk) and ruler to adjust the sizes until they are all in alignment with one another before sewing over them later on.

Keep adding design elements along the guidelines, starting with whatever is easiest for you. Our suggestion is bubbles, then use a letter stencil to add words in bubble letters, then do some wavy lines, etc until you’re done! Don’t forget to put some decorations on the other side of the fabric too!

  • Add your design elements in a way that makes sense to you. We suggest starting with bubbles, then using a letter stencil to add words in bubble letters, and then do some wavy lines. You get the idea!
  • Don’t forget to add some decorations on the other side of the fabric too!

And finally…

  • Don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect, you can always make another one.

Conclusion

Once you’ve finished with the design, it’s time to cut out the fabric. If you’re using chalk or a marker, be sure not to press down too hard so that it doesn’t leave an imprint on your fabric when cutting around it!
