This is one of those projects I’ve wanted to try forever, but couldn’t find an excuse. Finally I decided I’d just make a few to have on hand for new baby gifts as the need arises. There’s always a baby being born somewhere, right? And babies wear diapers. And if those diapers don’t have a cute little pouch to live in, well, then there’s trouble.
The pouches will fit a couple diapers (I had hoped for some nice, unbleached 7th Generation diapers in my photos…turns out all we had were tacky princess pull-ups, so you’ll have to use your imagination) and a full package of travel wipes, plus there’s room on the sides for diaper cream or a little bottle of hand sanitizer (this one’s my all time favorite – spearmint lime by Cleanwell. Smells soooo good, and it’s alcohol-free).
This is such a quick and simple to project. I could’ve gone on and on, but since the first two don’t have homes yet I figured I should hold off. They were fun though. Plus, it was my first time boxing a corner! Not that it was rocket science or anything, but it’s always fun to add a new skill to your repertoire.
Both prints are Kokka cotton/linen blends. The Heather Ross print was a much too generous gift (a whole yard!) from Kristin for using our reading nook for her Project Run and Play photo shoot this week. I’ve been living vicariously through her during the PR&P excitement and was thrilled just to be part of the photo shoot action, but she insisted on fabric payment, because she’s sweet like that. And while we’re on the subject of PR&P, check out her glorious design for the Special Occasions category this week:
Aren’t those petals amazing? Voting is still open through tonight – if you haven’t done so already, go check out her Japanese Tea Party entry and VOTE!
