sewing is great

A few days ago I made a lovely little stack of diaper keepers.  I really wasn’t going to blog about it because I’ve made some before and of course I also made my own version with my diaper pouch tutorial a couple times, too:

But when as I was making them it made me realize that I can take a few scraps of fabric, sew them together, and make something that will be useful to 5 mothers (and possibly the dads too) for a long time to come.  Isn’t that great to think of sewing that way?

Before the fabric was just sitting on my shelf and now it’s a stack of diaper keepers that are so handy for anyone’s diaper bag.  Quick, easy, and fun project, oh and for these I used Diary of a Quilter‘s tutorial here.  Love them!  See?  Sewing doesn’t have to be fancy or artsy or whatever, it can be what you want it to be.  And these are a mom’s necessity in my world.

Fabrics: Amy Butler Lotus, Cloud 9 My Happy Nursery and Cut Out & Keep, Alexander Henry Farmdale
