So, I was cruising around a cloth diaper selling site when I saw them offering a wool wet diaper bag for $30+ dollars. Wait a minute, duh! I can use those wool sweaters that don't shrink so nice and make one myself! I'm just kicking myself for not thinking of it every time I put her in a disposable for a run to the grocery store these last two years when I knew I could get around it if I would just think.
First I took one of my really thick felted wool sweaters (shrunk in a hot/cold wash and dried in the dryer) that I felt was too bulky for a diaper cover or longie. I cut off the sleeves from the body. I will be making this out of the sleeves, I am reserving the body for a matching cloth diaper bag.
I cut the sleeves to the length of bag that I felt would contain a folded wet diaper by using a diaper as a "ruler."
Then I cut open the sleeves.
Then I decided on the number of buttonholes I wanted. It should be an even number and this one took 6. I marked where I wanted them with pins and took it to the sewing machine.
I made a drawstring by braiding three strands of yarn together and here is my dirty cloth diaper bag. I will wash it along with my covers and this will be reusable and not as stinky as a ziploc bag.
