Sunday Project: Baby Wipes Toy






Do you have an empty wipes bin?  
Fabric scraps?



A baby/child that loves to tear through your fabric stash like it is nobody's business?

This is for you!!!
I am not even going to pretend I came up with this idea!  I found it on the somewhat...okay...VERY addictive Pinterest!

Here is the original project.

But of course...I tweak.....I love to tweak!

I grabbed fabrics with no rhyme or reason.  They just happened to be decent size fabrics from my stash basket.  What is my stash basket? 

A huge basket that I throw all my scraps or mini bolts for the week.  I have decided I waste a goodly amount of time to return fabric as I work on projects.  I now spend Sunday's (laundry day) re-folding my mini bolts and relegating my scraps to where they belong HERE.

My scraps are different sizes...okay they may resemble a rainbow...I know, I know...I love rainbows!

I didn't feel like appliqueing mine nor hemming them. 
 This was a project to get quickly done and in the hands of the baby.


A simple pinking edge with my pinking rotary tool (not my favorite, BTW...I WILL be buying a pair of pinking shears on my next supply trip!)

My wipe container was boring white.


I pulled out my washi tape and made some stripes.

I can guarantee that Button does not care one bit that I didn't go crazy with applique numbers and letters.



He just likes to shove them into the case. 


 I guess most baby's want them out?
I think he takes after me...a little bit of an organizer!

  1. My son likes to pull the wipes out, one by one, until I have a huge pile of no-longer-pop-up wipes all over the floor. I have plenty of empty cases and lots of scraps. I think we will be seeing one of these in our very near future!

  6. Having a new baby is a life changing experience. Commonly, however, parents are floored and overcome by the cost of buying products for their newborn baby.
