60 wipes for only $2! (no sewing required!)

I posted this in craft chat, but thought it might be useful up here too!

So I have always made my own wipes, out of terry & flannel, t&t'd. I loved how they worked, but got a wild hair & decided to go through my fabric & see what else I could make them with.

I found some sweatshirt fabric from walmart I got for $1 a yard. (super cheap!). I cut it into 8x9 squares & that's it! No sewing, no fraying, and they are so soft! I think I may just use these from now on. why didn't I think of this earlier?!

I didn't get all of the fabric cut, but I had 2 yards of this funky color orange/coral-ish stuff, and I already had cut out about 30-40 wipes (thank goodness for the rotary cutter!) I'm guessing you could easliy make about 50-75 depending on size.

Just thought I would share!

Do the edges roll up?

The edges roll a little, but not much. I imagine if you made them small they would roll more.

That's a good idea. I may just have to try that.
