Learn how to make adorable diaper clutches with this easy diaper clutch and changing mat sewing pattern. These are extremely handy for a new mom and can make useful handmade gifts.
When it comes to sewing for babies, the items you can sew are endless. Babies need a ton of items and all of them are very much needed for a new mom to help ease her job of looking after her little one.
When my kids were babies, I had done a lot of traveling and I had all the things necessary for easy travel. I had to change their diapers in my car or even at the airport and had it not been for this two-in-one diaper clutch pattern, that changed to a nappy mat, I would have found it extremely hard for the diaper changes.
I easily slipped down some diapers and a diaper wiper pack inside the clutch and carried it in my handbag. That way I could avoid carrying an extra handbag for my baby.
The store-bought diaper clutches were often not up to the mark and the ones I had didn’t serve the dual purpose I required. That is how I designed my own quick and easy diaper clutch and changing mat pattern.
I designed this tutorial on how to make a diaper clutch to be sewn effortlessly with the fabric I liked. Here I have used flannel for the inner part for the baby’s comfort. You can easily toss it in your washing machine and get it cleaned.

Instructions for Making the Clutch:
Instructions for Placing and Attaching The Snaps:
Your kit also comes with an awl, which is a tool with a handle with a sharp point and a hand-held press. Push the awl through the fabric of the flap, making a small hole. Place the snap, which is the flat piece with the point on it, with the point coming into the hole towards the inside of the diaper clutch, with the flat end facing the outside of the clutch. Place one of the snaps with the hole (it doesn’t matter which) on top of the point of the snap, and using the hand-held press, squeeze the snaps together. Repeat on the other side but reverse the side you have the snap and hole. If you need help, you can use the tutorial on the KAM website.
