DIY Wet Bag

I had a minor snag in my wet bag creation in that my sewing machine had a hissy fit on me. I managed to kick it back in to shape (thankfully not literally) and I sewed myself a wet bag to bring with Elias on the go!

I debated doing a full DIY on how I made this bag, but there are so many better tutorials out there and I'm not a pro sewer. (Just Google "Wet Bag DIY") I will tell you a few tips on how I made mine though!

I bought material that is used for making cloth diapers. This way I didn't have to do any fancy liner or insert (I like to keep it simple). The zipper was something that came in a big bag of sewing material from my Aunt so I already had it on hand (yes it even happened to match). I cut a large rectangle out of the material and folded it in half so I only had to sew the two sides.

I made the bag just a little bit longer than the zipper that I had. I sewed it in using the zipper foot on my sewing machine with nothing fancy about it.

I had some black strap-type material and I folded the end corner a bit so I could attach it. This way I can hang the bag if necessary.

That's about it- a big rectangle bag to hold dirty diapers- WOO! But I honestly love it and am so proud that I made something practical and very useful.
