When we are going out for a long period of time or to someone’s house I generally take my daughters large diaper bag which houses diapers, soother, change of clothes etc. However if I am just running out, going for a walk, dr apt etc I take my diaper clutch. I got a cosmetic bag from a grocery super store. Sparkly and pretty, but cheap. Within 2 months the inner liner has ripped, and its really not large enough to house it all.
So I decided I would go on Etsy and look for a good little wallet. I found 2 I love.
|This one by Celine Creations is Super pretty|
|This is from Drundry Hill is super cute too.|
And I was about to order it when I decided I could probably craft one myself. I am not an expert sewing by ANY stretch of the imagination, BUT I do have a lot of supplies. I also figured if I totally botched it so what. I would just end up buying a new one and scrap the one that cost me nothing. So I went down stairs to see what I had on hand for fabric. I knew I had a GREAT print that would be super pretty but it was too light weight and lineny (is that a word?). SO I search on. Ends up I still have a lot of fabric left over from making my daughters crib sheets and bumpers. So that was the winning fabric.
I decided I was also going to make a small change pad.
This is what I came up with:
I wish I could have made this a tutorial but since I had such low hopes of it working out I didn’t take photos. If any one would like a description of the process I can try that but I thought to post it that way would bore everyone to tears!
