Last week, she announced on Facebook that she is expecting her second little!!! I am returning the favor and sharing the cloth diaper love and sending her a care package right back :)
I am trying to spend more time in my craft studio (aka The Hobby Room) and having a Pack N' Play in there makes that goal even easier! I started this project with one happy and adorable baby:
I have made a few wet bags and I've learned now the bigger, the better. Here I didn't even measure, I just used all the PUL I had left and cut a piece of cotton to match. I used a 12" zipper so I made sure the side that would be folded in half did not exceed 12" (I believe the rough size of these pieces was 21" x 25")
Once the zipper was sewn on one side, I folded the fabric in half and repeated the identical process to sew the fabric to the other side of the zipper.
Then came lining. I once again repeated the process of sewing right side up (you can see here wrong sides are together) but I was blind sewing along the zipper. My index finger in this photo is on the zipper teeth so I knew where to align my presser foot.
ALWAYS pin first!
For my friend's gift box I included some Imagine prefolds she handed down to us, the wet bag I sewed, a BumGenius NB AIO, a gDiaper and some disposable gPants liners for those early newborn days.
I'm so excited for her and her family and I love being able to share the cloth diaper love!!! Not to mention it allowed me to go on a trip to the local cloth diaper store for the first time...where I went a little wild buying new covers for Billy too :) Totally worth the splurge!
