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)


Materials Needed:
*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.
Trim off excess fabric and pull right sides out through the opening. Push all corners out and carefully push out the sides of the diaper so they lie flat. Iron.
Top stitch all around diaper.
The finished inside of diaper. Gather some 1/2″ sew on velcro and cut about a 1″ length.
Sew the hook part of the velcro onto the “diaper tabs.”
And attach the loop part of the velcro to the front of the diaper like so.
And that’s it. A new diaper for your little ones doll.
With a sweet little heart.

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!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to make doll diapers and wipes! They are easy to make and make fabulous handmade gifts for little girls!

    We made these this weekend – my sister and my best friend. We made them for our granddaughters and we had so much fun! Thank you so much for the idea! The longest part was getting the pattern just right – once we had that down it was smooth sailing. We put the Velcro across the front just so they were a little more versatile depending on what baby they wanted to use them on. I wish I had taken pictures to post but I didn’t think about that until just now. We made lots of diapers and the wipes with the holders! We can’t wait to give them at Christmas! We even made a couple camo for my grandson since he plays with the babies too with them!
    Just wanted to say thank you because we had so much fun working on these! Now we are looking for a project for next year!!!

    I too would like an actual size pattern of the diaper if possible!

    Can you usw fleece instead of cotton? Would that work well?

    I made the wipes for my niece to go along with the doll clothes and accessories I sent for her baby doll. It turned out so cute and she loves them. Thank you for the cute idea!
