I love making these things. Perfect shower gifts! I use quilt batting - two layers on top and one layer on bottom. I lay my case on it and cut around it top and bottom. I glue it to the case and then cover with the fabric. It is nice and smooth. I tried stuffing them but never could get it very smooth. You can get like a hundred cases out of one roll and it is so cheap too! Yours is so cute! And I love the ones posted by frix220 also!

i still haven't made the new ones, i need to start tomorrow, but i'm going to use batting, and i expect it to be MUCH easier! at the time made the tute i didn't have any on hand. heck, i made the first one i ever made with cotton balls, DEFINITELY not fun to try to even out! and prolly disastrous if it got wet!
now i would say it's got to be better, even though i haven't used it yet. but i have plenty on hand now from padded baby carriers and baby quilts, so i'll find for myself soon !

I love this one!! i just made my first a few weeks ago... I left the small top opening of the wipe case uncovered though...I think I like the whole thing covered better.

Anyway, I found this awesome glue called "flip flop glue" that works really well because its designed to stick things like fabric and ribbon to plastic flip flop straps. It dried fairly quickly too, so I didnt have to hold the fabric in place for forever.

How do these hold up over time with day-to-day use?  I want to check to make sure they are really sturdy before giving one as a gift.  Any tips?

I actually don't know, the first one I made for my daughter was decoupaged with a picture of her and a cut out quote bubble from a magazine ad saying "and then they put my diaper on backwards", and it just cracks me up more the older she gets and the younger the baby in the picture is... I would think someone else who reads this may have a better answer? I should carry one for awhile and test it I guess!

I think if you do a decent job with the hot glue gun, there shouldn't be a problem. However, one of my friends (who I made a case for) lets her daughter play with & chew on it, and I'm not sure I would recommend that..

AHAHAHAHA, what won't they chew on? My daughter tries to chew ALL my resin jewelry, and I don't mean with sprinkles or candy in it... just plastic! goofy toddlers...
 Aside from  the glue holding up,  they're made using travel wipes containers that don't live as long as a baby is in diapers, or mine don't last that long. Almost 2 years though. My decoupaged travel container has a broken plastic hinge part that stops me from using it much now. But then again, you could spent the same amount on an item of clothes that fits for 3 months, or a single cloth diaper that may not fit well or is outgrown just as fast, or a toy they chew twice and never play with... Honestly, so much of what you buy a baby isn't truly necessary. But a pretty boutique item that's well cared for should stand up to time pretty well, except for the initial problem, which is that the travel case itself is designed to wear out so you buy another!
 If you can test it in person try pulling on it a bit, the trim etc. I wouldn't feel bad if I "broke" it, it shouldn't come apart. That should be part of the makers quality control before it reaches you. Online I would only buy from someone reputable/ethical enough to offer a refund or exchange within a week of receipt so you can inspect it in person. If it's well glued when you get it, all should be well.
