DIY Cloth Wipes
Item: DIY Cloth Wipes
Why I wanted to make this: You know those pink and blue receiving blankets that you stole.. err I mean brought home from the hospital after your bundle of joy was born? (Seriously, you’re paying for it- you might as well take a few parting gifts, right?) Well since I was done using my receiving blankets and I couldn’t bear the thought of just throwing them away, I figured I could upcycle them. A friend and I (hi, Gina!) were chatting about cloth wipes (we both use cloth diapers) and how easy it might be to make them so I remembered the left over receiving blankets and thought they would be perfect! I wanted the wipes to be able to fit into my wipe warmer and/or a disposable baby wipe container so mine measure around 6″ x 4.5″ (the same size as a folded disposable wipe.) You can easily add more to the length/width on the pattern to make them bigger.
Items you will need:
– 1 receiving blanket (or flannel)
– Sewing machine with thread
How to do it:
Even if you don’t cloth diaper, these little wipes can still come in handy for wiping spit bubbles, countertops, getting the fog off of the inside of your windshield.. etc.
