How to Make Your Own Cloth Baby Wipes – Sewing Tutorial
1) Tear flannel into baby wipe-size pieces
2) Serge or zig zag edges
It really is as simple as that! Serging is easiest, and fastest, but if you don’t have a serger zig zagging the edges will work just fine. If you want to get fancy you can hem the edges, the way I do for my cloth napkins.
I’m also using these as inserts for Lily’s tiny newborn diapers. I’ve made one more cover and plan to make a few more. There are various baby wipe solution recipes on the internet, but I use plain water most of the time and my kids never get diaper rash. If I feel like I need something a little stronger, I use California Baby Diaper Area Wash.
The adjustment to three kids is going well, although both Emma and Johnny are sick again this weekend and that makes things a little tougher. I’ve been thoroughly spoilt with Grandma doing all the cooking and taking Emma and Johnny out on long walks in their double stroller. Lily is doing beautifully, only waking twice a night to eat – absolutely wonderful since she is gaining weight just fine.
