Travel Diaper Clutch
PDF Version
Folded Finished Size: 6.5" x 10.5"

You will need:
Outer fabric: 22" x 10.5"
Lining fabric: 22" x 10.5"
Binding fabric: (2) 11" x 2.5", (2) 13.5" x 2.5"
Sew-on Velcro 2" x 1/2"" 
Fusible fleece*: 22" x 10.5"
Iron-On Vinyl*: (2) 22" x 10.5"
*Optional-fusible fleece is highly recommended if using quilting cotton weight fabric

1.  Apply fusible fleece to wrong side of outer fabric

2.  Following package instructions, apply iron vinyl to right sides of both outer fabric and lining fabric.


3.  Layer outer fabric and lining fabric wrong sides together and pin.  Baste layers together using 1/8" seam allowance.  Note:  If using iron-on vinyl, keep your pins within 1/4" of the fabric edge so the pin marks are hidden within the seam allowances of the finished product.  


4.  Center velcro 2" in from each 10.5" edge of the outer fabric (below picture shows 3", pretend it shows 2"), and sew in place.


5.  Take the (2) 11" x 2.5" binding strips, fold in half lengthwise, press.  


6.  We will attach (1) binding strip to each 10.5" edge in the same manner as applying quilt binding.  Align the raw edges of the binding with the outer fabric raw edge of the 10.5" side, sew with 1/4" seam allowance.


7.  Fold the finished edge around to the back of the fabric (lining fabric side).  Stitch in the ditch from the outer fabric side, catching the finished edge of the binding on the lining side of the fabric sandwich.


8.  Fold each 10.5" edge in towards the center, creating (2) pockets that measure 4.5" x 10.5".  Baste in place following basting stitches from step 3.


9.  Fold short edges of remaining (2) binding strips 1/4", press.  


10.  Fold in half lengthwise, as in step 5.  

11.  Apply binding strip to each unfinished edge as in steps 6 and 7.  I prefer to begin applying binding to the "outer fabric" of the pouch, and fold binding around to the inner "pocket side".  


12.  Fill your new stylish diaper clutch full of diapers and wipes, enjoy!

  1. This is so cute Jess. Great fabric choices. I think I will make one for a friend that is expecting! Thanks!

  2. Haha it is cute and simple to be applied. Can I use another fabric for it? And what's the best fabric for it? I just gonna try and if allowed I will repost it in

  3. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...
    It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like, Herpes, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob,,Lyme Disease,Epilepsy, ,ALS,Hepatitis,Copd,Parkinson disease.Genetic disease,Fibrodysplasia disease,Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Men/Woman infertility, bowel disease ,Huntington's disease ,Diabetes,Fibroid. disease,Lupus,Lipoid Storage diseases( Gauchers disease),Polycystic Disease.,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Cirrhosis of Liver,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic,HIV, Epilepsy, Infertility, Love Spell,. then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
