It’s time to post about crafty stuff once more [finally!!]. It’s been a while since I’ve had time to do anything crafty. Of course, there’a always working on Nick’s striped sweater that’s been sitting around for 1 year…and there’s always making new PUL diaper covers…and starting the 2-3 dress and shirt ideas I have in my head. But I wanted something quick; something I could finish in 1 or 2 afternoons. So I chose a wet bag and a simple blouse. Today I will blog about the wet bag.
I’ve never owned anything animal print…in my life! But now, I own 1 animal print item: a wet bag for diapers and other wet stuff. I bought this material to make a changing pad for a friend, so the material was laying around in my basement crafting space. Well, after seeing a few good deals on Zulily for wet bags, I decided it was time that I changed from using grocery store plastic bags to a reusable, washable wet bag. I actually already had a plain, white waterproof fabric wet bag that neither Nick nor I liked because it had a drawstring closure and would let diaper smells get out of the wet bag. Eek! So, I took it upon myself to convert the drawstring wet bag into a zipped wet bag with a cotton outer layer to give it some more style.
Enter animal print.
It’s zebra–black and white stripes. Totally NOT me!
But I decided to go out on a limb since after all, it is just a diaper bag. I also had a homeless zipper that once zipped up a shirt/blouse (that has since been torn apart for other purposes) laying around that was the perfect length! Surprisingly enough, I also have the tool for pressing snap buttons into material (for the loop of the wet bag). So, combine all of the things “laying around” my crafting space…and voila!
A new animal print wet bag. Take a look!
