This handy little diaper clutch is an essential for busy moms on the go. Simply fill the pocket flaps with diapers and wipes and toss in your diaper bag to keep them organized and within reach. Unfolded, the clutch can also double as a changing pad when needed. It makes a fantastic baby shower gift as well!
Use ½” seam allowances.
Step 1: Along the upper long edge of one inside pocket rectangle, double fold and press a ¼” hem; stitch.
Step 2: With right sides facing up on each, align the lower raw edge and sides of the hemmed inside pocket rectangle with the lower edge and sides of the pocket lining rectangle, pin in place. Then, with right sides together, place the outer pocket rectangle on top of the lining fabric rectangle (the inner pocket rectangles will be sandwiched between), aligning all edges and pin in place. Stitch the upper, lower, and right hand side.
Step 3: Repeat the process with the remaining pocket rectangles and stitch the upper, lower, and left hand side.
Step 4: Turn both pockets right side out and press.
Step 5: With right sides together, align the two fabric diaper clutch flap pattern pieces. Place the batting flap piece on top, aligning all edges, and stitch the upper rounded edge.
Step 6: Turn right side out and press, then topstitch along the upper rounded edge.
Step 7: On the right side of one 15”x22” main fabric rectangle, align the raw edge of one pocket with the raw edge of the rectangle 1” up from the lower edge, pin in place. (The outer pocket fabric, contrast fabric #2 should be visible). Repeat with the remaining pocket on the opposite side and pin in place. Then, stitch both long sides and the lower edge, beginning and ending stitching ½” from the upper edge.
Step 8: Turn right side out and press.
Step 9: Along the upper edge, fold the raw edge under ½” towards the wrong side and press.
Step 10: Slip the raw edge of the flap in between the pressed edges from the previous step ½”. Pin in place and then stitch approximately ¼” from the folded edge.
Step 12: Place diapers and wipes into the pockets and fold up as shown in the photos. Audition placement for your Velcro depending on how full your clutch is and then pin in place. Remove diapers and wipes and stitch Velcro into place or adhere with sticky backing.
And there you have it! Now fill your clutch with the essentials and toss in your diaper bag, or gift it to your favorite mom-to-be!
