Wipes

Mike and I have made the decision to only use cloth diapers and cloth wipes with out baby.  The initial cost of using these two things is the one con that I see to using them.  To help with that, I decided to make the wipes.

I found this blue flannel fabric at the LA Garment District for about $2.  And no, I’m not talking per yard here…it was $2 for about 2.25 yards of fabric!  That is my kind of deal!  In my opinion, I don’t really care what color the flannel is, or how it looks because it will  be used primarily to wipe up poo.  So blue?  Not a problem for me at all.

I made the wipes using these instructions for two layer, turned and top-stitched wipes, and nothing could be easier, or quicker to put together. In one hour, I was able to finishe 4 wipes, and cut out 20 more (and the cutting took the majority of the time).  To moisten the wipes we will try a few combinations from some wipe solution recipes that I found online.

For those of you will kids, do you have any idea how many wipes I might need to start out with?
