It’s a Set!

I had a lot of fun sewing today! I started the diaper bag last week, but wasn’t able to finish it until today. And I had fabric left over and plenty of inspiration, so I made a matching “mess bag” and changing pad as well! I love that this fabric is gender neutral yet super cute.

Every time we go to church, I take Jace to a babysitters, or really, anytime I head out with Jace and plan on feeding him, I throw a spoon and his food into a zip lock bag. I’ve thought over and over again that a vinyl lined pouch would be perfect for these things so I could just wipe it out after we return home. While this one’s for my Etsy shop, not me, I think I’ll have to pull out my leftover fabric from Jace’s bag and make one for us too.

The set wouldn’t be complete without a changing pad. I put terrycloth between the layers of fabric and vinyl so it’s padded for a baby head, yet still flexible and easy to fold.

  1. This is really impressive. I have not tackled making a bag yet, but yours is really cute! So much better than paying tons of money for one!

  2. Very cute! Thanks for linking @Creative Itch's "Sew Cute Tuesday"!

  3. Very cute! I use my homemade reusable bags for the spoons too! Mine aren't NEARLY as impressive. Very very nice!!!! :)

  4. Thanks for the comment love, ladies!
    Emily--I used a very simple pattern for my first diaper bags (messenger bag style), but after making a few of them I felt like I was able to understand better how to put them together. Now I find with a little extra effort, I can create my own patterns which makes it a lot more fun!

  5. Love the pattern and the fabric you used! So cute! You are very talented!
