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