I love the SUPERSTORE Joann Fabric Stores. So much fun to see the racks and racks of fabrics and sometimes score some adorable fabrics in store that I would normally have to buy online :)
Such was the case with this project. I knew I wanted something a little different from my last diaper case sack, and something close to a wet bag. So I made a zippered diaper bag/wet bag out of this super cute 2D Zoo print fabric.
The finished bag measures 8"x10" and the bag has no exposed seams inside of it.
I cut two pieces of fabric and two pieces of PUL to be 9"x11" and I cut one piece of fabric to be 9"x10" for the pocket. I used a 9" zipper and had a 1/2" seam allowance.
Now my confession.....I HATE ZIPPERS!!!! I hate them with a passion, mostly because they scare me and I don't really know how to sew them well. So I followed Ashley's directions on her zippered bags for the making of the zippered portion and getting the lining in place. (Awesome tutorial!)
Then I went back to Ashley's directions and sewed the outer pieces and lining together with right sides touching and sewing along all sides with a 2" opening in the lining. Trim edges, clip corners, turn out and stitch the opening in the lining and pull through.
Also love that the pocket holds one of the travel wipes cases with plenty of space in the bag for diapers and a change of clothes.
If you want it slightly smaller (which I might try next time I make one, just to compare) then you can use a 7" zipper and cut the fabric to be 8"x10" and adjust pocket likewise.
