sewing: nappy wallets from vintage tablecloths

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I’ve sewn a couple of these nappy wallets this week. Boy oh boy did it take some courage to cut further into my beloved big floral tablecloth. Does anyone else have trouble cutting into lovely vintage fabrics? I have to do it all the time unfortunately, and although it is always usually a satisfying end result, that first snip always includes just a little touch of heartbreak.

One of the nappy wallets above has already been snapped up, and the identical one will be appearing in my etsy store as soon as I can get around to taking some picaroons!

If you’d like to make your own nappy wallet and don’t want the hassle of measuring and thinking, there are plenty of great tutorials around from people who have already done the hard work. Here are a few I found with a quick google search to get you started:

:: Nappy wallet by And so, I sew (great tutorial, clear instructions and good photos!)

:: Nappy wallet by While she was sleeping (a bit longer, but includes an option for an elastic strap)

:: Nappy wallet by Just for Daisy (this one is a little bit different to the two above and includes a changemat) 

This is just a tiny selection of many great tutorials out there. Have a little look around yourself, I’m sure you’ll find one that works for you. Otherwise head over to birdie said and I can make one for you! Out of upcycled materials of course.

Have a great weekend x

  1. A nappy wallet just like this was my bestest best friend for many years. I’m very happy to know where to buy one when the next little bub us born because this is the PERFECT gift for a new mum. x
