I received another commission last week for more wet bags for cloth diapers. This client wanted zippered pouches. I have to admit, I most definitely like the drawstring bags better than the zippered ones. I just do not enjoy putting zippers in. However, I am happy for work: more jobs= more fabric money. 🙂 The first bag is a small 13×16 inch perfect for the diaper bag. The second one is a large 17×21 inch bag meant to be used in the house as a wet pail. Everyone seems to have a tutorial for zipper pouches and I have read many of them and come up with my own way to make them- kinda compiling all that I have read. I did use this tutorial to do the covered zipper ends. I have never done that before and I like how clean it makes the zipper look. I am pretty pleased with how my business both on etsy and thru word-of-mouth is building up and I hope to have some time in the next few weeks to make some more inventory to share with a few different sources. First, I need to stop making these Washi dresses! I can’t wait share my purple shot cotton one with you next week!
I love these bags! My little girl is past nappies now, but it would be really handy to have one for when we go swimming. What type of fabric do you use?
Thanks! I think they are cute too. 🙂
I use quilting weight cotton for the outer fabric and PUL for the inner fabric. The PUL is the same waterproof fabric used for the outside of cloth diapers. I also have drawstring ones that are the same idea with drawstring instead of a zipper.
Love the covered zipper ends, I’ll definitely use this tutorial next time I do a lined zippered pouch. Wish I’d known it before!
