(It Doesn't Have To Be A) Diaper Pouch

Hi everyone!  I've been keeping busy sewing a couple bindings on lately - not a very exciting part of the quilting process, unless you think of it in terms of almost being DONE!  :)  One project I did sneak in a little bit ago was a Diaper Pouch!

Remember the Sitia Marie tote I showed you at this link?  Shortly after I mailed it to my friend Laura, I saw a cute diaper pouch on Pinterest - complete with a great tutorial!



(Click on the photo to get to Pinterest, then click there to go to the tutorial!)  I wanted to give it a try ... but linen?  Just isn't a good fit with me, nor do I have any. I put the idea on the back burner, turned the heat down, and let it simmer a bit. THEN ... I got a package from my friend Laura! Included were a couple pairs of BDU pants her brother-in-law wore when he was in the Air Force. It hit me right away -- use a hunk of the BDU fabric instead of linen, paired up with some of the fabs left from making Laura's Sitia Marie tote! PERFECT!!!

Here it is:

Complete with coordinating lining:

I used polypro and Velcro to keep the pouch closed.  CUTE!

Laura has delivered a beautiful baby girl named Raven, and both bags are already in use!  (Insert major smile here!)

I will definitely make this again.  Not just for diapers - my Kindle Fire with cover and iPhone fit in here together.  I think this would make a great protective sleeve for any eReader, your iPad, etc.  The size might need a little tweaking to get it just right, but that's easy enough!

Thanks for reading!

Very cute. I always love how you re-purpose the military clothing into your projects. Definately could use the bag design to carry lots of other things.
