Okay…….so I was trying real hard to come up with a different name for the Pee-Pee Teepee.(Have you seen them in stores?) I came up with Pee Pee Dome, Splatter Cone, Pee Pee Cone……..and then my husband chimed in with Wee Wee Wigwam. (You should have seen the proud look on his face.)
Hey, it parallels the original name in so many ways.
Have you seen these little things? If not, they are the perfect solution for those unruly diaper changes, when baby boys seek revenge on the person allowing cool air to hit their Nether Regions. Often times, they start spraying pee the minute that diaper comes off. Crazy how that happens.
Here’s the solution. Just plop one of these Wigwams on top while you’re wiping, situating, unfolding the diaper, etc. And if they soil it, just toss it in the washer for next time. Easy as that.
How to make a Wee Wee Wigwam?
First, trace around a circle object that is between 6-7 inches in diameter. This bowl is about 6.5 inches across and it worked great.
Then fold the circle exactly in half to use as a pattern.
Now, cut out a piece of cotton and a piece of matching fleece/flanel/something soft. (I used extremely soft fleece. I don’t know what type it is but it frays like crazy and almost feels like Minky.)
Then, with right sides together, sew your two half circles together along the curved side………………using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Then turn right side out and pin it flat, right along the seam.
Then sew the curve of your half circle flat, very close to the edge.
Then fold your half circle in half, with right sides together. Sew right along the raw edges, with another 1/4 inch seam allowance. Then sew another seam, using your zig-zag stitch. Trim any edges if necessary.
Then turn right side out and poke the tip out.
Then make a few more and use them or gift them to a friend.
