  • Free pattern download
  • Towel fabric
  • Cotton fabric. You can use what you have leftover from your other projects.
  • Two pairs of 3″ long velcro straps.
  • matching thread thread
  • scissors (or rotary cutter and a cutting mat)
  • iron and ironing board
  • sewing clips or pins
  • sewing machine 


First, print out the free pattern that is provided or make your own from scratch. Outline the pattern to the towel and cloth and cut it out. It should look like a big letter “H” once you finish. Place them on top of each other, right sides together. Align the edges and secure the fabric with pins or clips while leaving a 2-3 inch opening for turning the Swiffer cover inside out.

Next, once you sew all around and in the middle of the pad, sew on the velcro. Put a pair on each of the flaps. For the wet mop, take the old disposable pad and place it on top of the towel. Cut out the towel according to the disposable and do a zig-zag stitch all around the pad. Stack them in a container and pour the cleaning solution on top of them.
