Hi, is there a particular type of glue that works better than others?  I tried with Aleene's, which was all I had on hand, and found that while it held the fabric in place well initially, it was difficult to stuff the fabric with batting without the fabric coming loose from the sides.

Also, do you only glue the edges of the fabric along the sides, or do you apply glue to the bottom of the case as well (I won't be padding the bottom)?

thanks for the help!  i'm so excited to be making a few of these for upcoming baby gifts.  Grin

Thank you so much for this tutorial.  It has inspired me to go and buy a wipie box.  Now I need to find some cutsie fabric to finish it off.  Thank you!

ok i made two of them!  i still have to work on perfecting the corners but all in all they came out ok.  i used a velvet ribbon instead of cording, which i liked better and i figured that the thicker velvet ribbon would still hide any uneven fabric.  the first was my practice one- i didn't use enough padding and it's a bit sloppy looking.  i made it for myself to match my beautiful Amy Butler diaper clutch made by a fantastic Etsy seller (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5558497).  the second one i made for a baby shower gift and i also made a matching diaper clutch, which was very challenging for this beginner sewer but it came out alright- not as well as i'd hoped though.

what isn't pictured is my idea for inside the case.  since you lose the pop-up feature on the huggies travel case when you cover the entire top, what i did was i cut down a ziploc bag to size and resealed it using a foodsaver machine.  i used adhesive spray to adhere it to the inside bottom and i cut a little slit in the bag so you could pull the wipes through.  makes it much easier to do the one-handed diaper changes we so often do in public restrooms!

I am trying to find a tutorial for making the larger size ones (not travel size). Does anyone know where I can find this? Mine never come out looking right!
