As I have done previously for the baby garland on my Instagram account, I made this mini sewing tutorial 📝for you to create these #lingetteslavables washable wipes that could be used for both your baby and yourself.

Material:

  • 100% cotton printed fabric
  •  Bamboo viscose sponge fabric (softer than cotton) OEKO-TEX (eco label that guarantees this fabric is made without chemicals)
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • pins

Steps:

1. I have made 10 wipes with different types of fabric, of course, you can choose to use only one type.
I have made a pattern which dimensions are 15cmx15cm using a piece of cut paper. You can also use a special ruler for patchwork pieces 15cmx15cm.
Using the pattern: pin the fabric and cut your square. Repeat with the sponge fabric.

2. Place the fabrics right side against right side. Pin.
On one of the faces, mark two references 4cm apart. You won’t sew between these marks to be able to turn the wipe inside out.

3. Sew with a straight stitch starting from one mark at about 1cm from the edge and stop at the second mark.

4. Cut the angles and the excess of fabric if any.

5. Turn the wipe inside out through the opening. Push well the fabric in the corner to form nice corners.

6. Close the opening with an invisible stitch by hand or with the machine  very close to the fold.
Iron the wipe.

You can also make a second seam all around the wipe at about 0.5cm from the edge if you like this finishing touch, it can replace the invisible stitch (see the title picture) or leave it like that.
They are ready! 💕👌🏼 I suggest you to wash them at 40 degrees before use.
