Smile wipe case back and corners and monogramming

I have been reading threads on wipe cases but still am not seeing what I need help with. Can anyone show me exactly how they glued the ribbon on? How are you going around the corners with the trim or ribbon? Also when you are looking at it from the top and it is lying on something does the part you see on the other side of the opening have one strip of ribbon or two? I tried one but getting it glued to the corners and the other ribbon going down... gosh, it just doesn't look well.

I have not seen one in person only online so I have not been able to examine one. I tried to make one today with these instructions
Wipe Case Cover Free Instructions

but my corners look bad and when I tried to cover with ribbon it looked HORRIBLE.

I just started making bows last week and I must say the Pinwheel bow is my favorite. So sweet looking.

Any help would be appreciated! And throwing another question out there not related.... when you monogram on a ribbon, what kind of stabilizer are you using? Mine looked a little rough with tear wear stabilizer and I just bought the sticky kind but have not tried it yet.

Thanks,
Melody

Two separate pieces sounds cool. Thanks. How does your back look the side view of it?? One trim or two? Are you using one whole piece of the trim or is it cut? I just havent seen what a close up of the trim on the wipe case looks like. Two separate pieces should help with the corner problems I am having. Thank you for responding!

Wow those are adorable!!

Two pieces also. Great!! I can visualize it now. Thank you again.

One more question? Is there a certain size trim? And does it read braided trim on the package?

quote=funybuny;161215 Hi Melody! Welcome to the group!

Here is how I do my wipe cases - I just made it up as I went along!

I treat the top and bottom as two separate pieces. So, cut a piece of fabrice that is just a little larger than the wipe case. I like to use thick batting, but I cut it to just fit the top of the case. Glue your batting down first. Then, starting back by the hinge of the case, I glue my fabric with hot glue (not covering the hinge). Then I go to the front of the case adn pull my fabric tight and tack it down with a few dabs of hot glue. Then I trim any of the excess off and make sure it's all glued, and do the same with the sides. Then flip the case over and repeat on the bottom side. I like to use the braided trim because it really covers all the rough edges. If you do it just right, the braid will cover the back hinge but still leave room to open.

anyway, I hope that helped a little! quote

Thank you so much funybuny! I have been searching for help, also! I can get everything to look good, but my corners look like crap everytime! I am going to try your method tonight!!!

Wow, it looks much better. I was able to tear off the ribbon and cut the fabric and only had to replace the top fabric so didnt waste too much. Now just need to go buy the trim tomorrow. So if I buy it in the store, so I can finish my project, about how long would I need to buy? Next, I am going to try and tackle a burp cloth to match. I usually cannot sew a straight line so that should be interesting! I know my husband wishes I would just stick to bow making, lol.

These are gorgeous!! I really want to try making these in the near future, I think they are so cute, and so much better than carrying around the plain huggies container. Thanks for sharing the advice. I've looked at instructions online but never liked certain aspects of them.

Clear thread?? You are kidding me?? I have never heard of it. You can actually ask someone where the clear thread is in the store? Is it actually sewing thread??
