[National Sewing Month] Diaper & Wipes Pouch

Did you know that September has been “National Sewing Month” since 1982? It started with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan, declaring September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”

What a great opportunity to share one of my more recent home-sewing creations (beyond my typical quilts).

DIY Diaper and Wipes Pouch

There are fairly easy to follow instructions (and downloadable pattern) from Crazy Little Projects.

I was able to purchase 2 coordinating “Fat Quarters” of fabric and the matching Velcro at Wal-Mart. The only other supplies you’d really need are thread, fabric scissors and a sewing machine. A small quilting ruler can be used to check that all of your seams are consistent.


DIY Wipes Pouch Front & Back

Crazy Little Projects has some great step-by-step photos. They came in handy when I was inspecting my finished project. The arrows below show some little bunch parts where the top flaps meet the body of they pouch. Since I am a crazy perfectionist, it bothered me that they were not laying completely flat.

Minor bunches- Diaper and Wipes Pouch
But then I closely examined the original tutorial, and her example seemed to have little bunches  too.  So I stopped worrying and happily gave to to my cousin as a very-belated baby shower gift!  I’ve been told it is very handy size and nicer than ones you see in the stores.  Which makes me happy!  Even if they are just being polite!

BONUS: After baby is out of the diaper/wipes stage, it will still make a nifty carrier for various essentials… like pens and pencils… or coupons… or snacks. :D

I am chalking this up to a Pinterest WIN!  (You can follow all my Boards here)
