How to Make Cloth Baby Wipes

I am completely not the crafty DIY type.  Fortunately, I’ve met people online who are.  Devon, a local mom from Prince George, recently made cloth baby wipes.  Here’s how she did it.  Thanks, Devon!

I chose to use old receiving blankets. I actually bought 9 of them for $2 from another mom. I used them to make 30 7×7 wipes (double layer). I’m big into recycling, and this is a nice way to repurpose old receiving blankets.
Wipes can be made to your size preference, I went approx 7×7. I cut 2 squares of equal size. I used different blankets for each side because it’s cute:) put the squares right sides together, and stitch around the edges. Leave approx a 1 inch gap to turn the wipe right side out.

Turn the wipe right side out through the 1 inch gap you left

Turn in edges of the gap

Hand stitch the gap closed.

DIY Kid Closet Dividers

I love shopping for baby clothes.  And toddler clothes.  Because I try to be a thrifty mom when it comes to buying cute baby clothes, it means that I often buy clothes ahead for both Norton and Eudora.  However, being a thrifty mom and buying ahead is a big fail if the cute baby clothes are missed and outgrown before your kid even has a chance to wear them.
