Trial and Error

Remember the wonky little embroidered bird on the bias tape last week? Were you curious what I was creating with that bias tape? Probably not, but I'll let you in on it anyway. I was working on a diaper and wipes wallet - the sort of thing that could turn any bag into a diaper bag.
As you can see, I've been through a few different versions in the last week and a half.

I finally came up with something I'm fairly happy with, but I still need to tweek it a bit (mostly the closure - how to make it a little more adjustable so it is not too loose when the wallet isn't full), so these two will be in the shop at a reduced price and hopefully I will come up with something I am totally happy with soon. Even though I've been working on this for a week and a half and am still not exactly where I want to be with it, the process has been enjoyable. I haven't done much pattern design until lately. I like it because I can make things exactly how I want to, but sometimes it takes a while to figure out exactly what it is that I want.

That's a nice idea. I would have liked something like that when N. was in diapers.

Maybe add a second button so you can have tighter option and a looser option.
they are very cute.
I also love the Diapees and Wipees diaper holder. It's been great for my purse.

Great idea! I no longer carry a diaper bag for my little one as I no longer need to tote around a bunch of baby stuff now. A couple of diapers and wipes are all I need to make sure I have when I leave the house.
