I’ve always thought that wet bags were only handy for cloth diapering mommies (which they are), but now I’ve gained an entirely new appreciation for them! They’re a great addition to Baby’s diaper bag. I put food, dirty clothes, wet clothes, spoons, bibs…. you name it – in my wet bag.
Here’s a tutorial on how to sew your very own wet bag. My design includes a handle on the side that closes with velcro so that you could attach the bag to a stroller or to a strap on your diaper bag. This method involves a bit of hand sewing, but there are no seams visible on the inside of the bag, giving it a professional-looking finish. It measures a compact 9″ by 9″, but you could make wet bags in larger or smaller sizes too, just buy more fabric and get a larger zipper.
- 1/3 yard printed cotton fabric
- 1/3 yard nylon, PUL or another waterproof fabric, OR a shower curtain
