Diaper Bag

Stash Busting!~!

I'm hard at work trying to bust some of my stash. (there is the possibility that I'm adding to my stash too, but I won't mention that)

Several years ago, I found this fabric that I love!  Do you remember the blue version from my car seat cover?    I of course bought several yards of it.  (in case of a craft emergency, of course).  My plan was to make a crib bedding set.  But since Cooper was born a boy...

I did make 2 of these diaper bags a few years ago.  I've modified them each time I've made them.  The first one was too soft.  I changed the the interfacing I used, but the second one I thought was too short.  (this is starting to sound like a Goldilocks story!) 

I think this one turned out great.  I did enlarge it from the last two. There are three pockets on the inside. I made the bottom removable so you can wash it after either your spill Cheerios or diaper cream in the bottom. The bottom fabric Velcro’s onto the cardboard and can also be removed and washed.

This fabric was cut out for about 2 years.  I was excited remove it from the list of things to get done.  Now it is moved to the "who do I give this to" list. 

Are you working on your stash?  I have a folding table in my craft room with the current projects I'm working on stacked.  That way, when I have a few minutes to go down there, I have lots of projects to pick from, depending on my mood.
