How to Make Doll Diapers and Wipes
Hello! I’m Christina from 2 little hooligans
and I’m so excited to be joining all of my fellow craftaholics out there today! I want to thank Linda for inviting me today, it is such an honor for little ole’ me to be here with all of you today.
So here’s a little bit about me…
I’m a stay at home with three little ones, 3 and under. I live in northern NH in our 1870’s farm house that we have been living in, while renovating for the past 6 years. We have two massive gardens where we raise all of our veggies and fruit for our family and friends. We enjoy the country living and the simple pleasures it brings us. Over on my blog I share my life and my love for the outdoors, sewing, crafting and the simple things in life. I started fat quarter friday a few months ago where each Friday I post tutorials using those cute little pieces of fabric that everyone loves to hoard and swoon over, but never seem to use. I hope you all get a chance to stop by and join me one of these days for fat quarter friday!
Now enough about me, Let’s get started, shall we?!
How to Make Doll Diapers & Wipes Tutorial
(Part 1: diapers, wipes and wipes case)
DIY Doll Diaper TUTORIAL
*Scrap pieces of fleece, felt or any other non-fraying material
*Cotton fabric scraps or a fat quarter if you want them to all match
*Minky fabric or flannel scraps
*1/2″ sew on velcro
Make your template shaped like above. To find the right size for your doll, lay the doll down and wrap it with a piece of paper as if you were going to diaper it with the piece of paper. Just fold and work with the piece of paper to get it to the right size. These diapers are made to fit my little girls favorite lovely…bear. But I also made sure they would fit her favorite dolls. So just play with the size a bit. My template is 8 1/2″ long and about 5 1/2″ on the width and about 1 1/2″ longer on the the tab side. And as you can see, I folded my paper both ways before cutting so that they were even on all sides and just trimmed the tabs off on the front of the diaper. Now you have your perfectly shaped template.
Trace the template onto the wrong side of the cotton fabric. If you want to add a little heart or label onto your diaper, add it now. Now take your piece of minky fabric and cotton fabric and place right sides together. Pin in place. Now sew directly onto your template outline. Make sure you leave a 1 1/2″ space for turning right side out on the back of your diaper.

How to Make Doll Wipes + Wipe Case
And because I couldn’t just stop there, I had to make up some wipes. I just cut my scrap pieces of fleece into 5 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ pieces. And that’s it. super easy right?
And since this momma couldn’t stop there I made a little case for the wipes.
Cut three pieces of fleece to the following sizes:
*3″ x 5″ (flap on top)
* little hearts if you want to embellish the flap
* cut two pieces at 6″ x 6 1/2″
Take one of the larger pieces of fleece and cut a small oval shape out of it. This is hole that the wipes will be pulled through.
Take the smaller piece of fleece and add some hearts to the flap if you want. Then cover up the oval opening with your flap and sew in place. Just make sure you leave enough room on the bottom of the flap to attach to velcro.
This is where my velcro ended up.
Now take the other piece of fleece and place it right sides facing with the top of the “wipes container.”
Sew completely around the “container.” Now pull right side out through the oval opening.
And there you have it! How easy was that?! And how adorably cute?!
Oh I already know this is going to make a little missy girl some happy, while keeping this momma very busy. I have a feeling I will be spending hours a day helping her put the wipes back into the container…over and over again!
