Flannel Diaper Case

Hey guys! Don't forget to enter this week's giveaway for a charm pack of Marmalade fabric!

Today's tutorial is for a diaper case. Instead of having 5 diapers wandering around aimlessly somewhere in your diaper bag, why not make a case for them all to live in happily?

To make mine I used the Sugar Hill Flannel that I love from my sponsor Marie Madeline Studio. It is so so soft!


  • 1/2 yard of fabric
  • 1/2 yard of batting
  • Ribbon
  • Sewing Machine
  • Thread
The first thing I did was cut out two identical rectangles from my flannel fabric. I determined the length and width in a very scientific manner...three diaper lengths and one diaper width and then I added 1 inch to the width and 1 inch to the length.

Once I had cut my two pieces of fabric I cut one piece of batting the exact same size.

Then I pinned the piece of batting to the back side of one of the pieces of fabric and sewed them together.  

Next I seed that piece to the other piece of flannel, front to front, leaving a small opening so that I could turn it inside out. 

I top stitched the opening and ironed the case so that it was smooth.

Next I placed a diaper in the case and tri-folded it so that I would know where to place my ribbon. I pinned the piece of ribbon to the back and sewed it down.

You only need to sew the ribbon to the area it touches the fabric in the above picture, only about a three inch section.

And you're done! Now you can fill your case with diapers and hit the road!
