Diaper/Wipe Pouch

Isn’t this cute?  I saw my niece’s bag that she uses for her baby’s diaper and wipes Thanksgiving weekend and thought she needed an new one!  The baby’s diapers are bigger now than they used to be…so, since I am stash busting, I thought I could whip one up!

I used an iron on backing for the monogram, actually I cut it with my Cricut, so it was very easy.  Still can’t believe the Cricut cut the fabric, I am so happy about that! 

I also made a diaper changing pad, just two layers of flannel and serged the edges together. It will be great to carry inside the bag for those unexpected diaper changes!
It has a velcro closure and a fold over flap, actually the whole thing is just one piece of fabric, only two side seams and trimmed the edges with quilt binding (like extra-wide double-fold bias tape)
I also machine appliqued the “a” so it wouldn’t come off.  I bought a lot of this chevron flannel at JoAnn’s on Black Friday.  Hopefully I will get it used up soon!
I am linking to these great parties!

Cute! And such a useful item :)

I want one! I *can* sew but never do. This is just adorable!

Jeni said...

Super cute! I love that you made it larger because the diapers are bigger now. My little girl wears Easy Ups now, and I can't use her cute little diaper and wipes bag anymore. I have resorted to a Ziploc bag. Do you think I can do this without sewing?

Oh so cute, good idea about the bigger size, they grow out of those tiny ones so quickly.

This is a.dorable! Those colors are too cute. I have a Cricut and have contemplated using it to cut fabric... I need to try it - I'm getting ready to applique a onesie! Found you through Blissful & Domestic. I'm a new follower.

I really wish the UK would wake up and smell the chevron fabric. What a great idea. I have always fancied trying Velcro; I don't know why I find it so intimidating.

Thank you so much for linking up with the craft challenge.

What a great gift for a mama, definitely more fashionable than some of the covers I've seen. Chevrons are so hot right now.

Thanks for linking it up at the 2013 Craft Challenge, I hope that we'll see you next month too!
