Just because I no longer have babies (unless a 35 month-old counts as a baby - I like to think so), does not mean that I no longer need baby wipes. Especially when we are out of the house. Messes at restaurants or in the car are all manageable with baby wipes on hand. So, when I saw that my sister-in-law had the most adorable case ever, I decided that I needed to make one for myself.
All that I needed was fabric, coordinating ribbon and flower embellishment, a travel wipe case, hot glue, and double sided tape.
To begin, I traced around the case.
Then I cut it out, leaving a little extra fabric to extend down the sides of the case. Using double sided tape I adhered the fabric, making sure that it was tacked down everywhere.
Once again, a scrapbooking brad has beautified my project even further. I simply stuck it through the center of the flower and pushed it through the fabric.
To finish off the edges, I hot glued my coordinating ribbon down. This picture shows my original botched version - the problem was that I got a ribbon that was too wide, and it didn't work well on the corners. As you can see on the last picture, I revised my project with a narrower ribbon, making it was easier to adhere and prettier to look at.
Oh, and in case you are unaware - hot glue can burn you. Which is perhaps part of the reason why I stashed this unfinished project away for a while; annoying ribbon I can deal with, blistering skin for the sake of cute baby wipes, I cannot.
One project down, four more to go.
