Add a pop of color in the baby’s nursery with the Hanging Diaper Stacker tutorial by Sew4Home.
- Sewing machine
- Zipper Foot
- 1½ yards of 44″+ wide printed cotton fabric for the exterior body and pockets
NOTE: This yardage allows a bit extra to fussy cut the stripes.
- 1¼ yard of 44″+ wide coordinating solid fabric for the lining
- ¼ yard of 44″+ medium-weight coordinating solid fabric for the top exterior section
- ¼ yard of 44″+ medium-weight coordinating solid fabric for the appliqué, piping and binding
- ¼ yard of fusible fleece
- ½ yard of 20″+ wide medium weight fusible interfacing
- Scrap or ¼ yard of paper-backed fusible web for appliqué
- 1 yard of ¼” (or similar) cotton piping cord
NOTE: Piping cord sometimes comes in what seems like odd sizes; you can certainly find ¼” cord, but 3/16″ cotton cord is a bit easier to source and would work fine.
- Scrap or ⅛ yard of ⅝” – 1″ sew-in Velcro®
- One 9″ x 14″ (approximate) sheet of plastic canvas (or similar) for the base support
- ONE 12″ wide child’s hanger with an adjustable hook
NOTE: Our stacker is sized for a snug fit over the hanger. The style we used was purchased at a local variety store. We spied the same style online at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond. The key is to buy the child-size style (most are 11-12″ in width) with a hook that can be rotated, allowing you to best position the stacker on a crib or changing table. We don’t recommend the molded plastic hangers.
- All purpose thread to match fabric
NOTE: We used all purpose thread for our appliqué work; you could also use a rayon embroidery thread for this process if you prefer a brighter finish.
