because i was bored.

by @according2kelly on April 3, 2008

a couple of nights ago i couldn’t sleep. but i didn’t really want to watch tv… so i thought i’d tackle a couple of craft projects i’ve been wanting to do for awhile. (click to enlarge the pictures.) i found a pattern HERE for the diaper case. although, if you know me at all, you know that me & patterns… we don’t get along so well. so, after attempting to understand what is a seemingly easy pattern, i ended up making lots of modifications & pretty much making up a new pattern, then playing around with my diaper case until i got it just right. after that i moved on to the wipes case. & although i’m sure there are zillions of tutorials out there, you don’t even need one. basically, all i did was use mod podge to glue the batting & fabric to the wipes case & then i “hid” the raw edges of the fabric with the trim. presto! chango! i’ve got me a diaper & wipes case to be proud of.

I have seen some pretty funky fabrics for those diaper wipes that are not for me. You picked the perfect fabric. I love it. And the carry case.

Wow, those are so amazing. It almost makes me wish for a wee one in diapers again just so I could have an excuse to use it. But as a gift for someone? Fabulous.

Very nice. Definitely beats carrying around an ugly wipes case and diaper. But, thanks to my little guy's self-initiated and attained goal of being toilet trained, I won't be needing anything like this again! Ya-HOO! (Well, maybe I could tackle the wipes case, every mama needs wipes on hand:)a.k.a. theespinozafamily :)
