Baby's first wetbag!!!
Here is a little wetbag I made today for the baby my DH and I are expecting in a few months!
I quilted the entire bag using 100% cotton batting in between the cotton fabric layers and included a clear vinyl layer on the inside for the waterproof part of the wetbag!
Since I plan to use cloth diapers I wanted to make a wetbag for days out on the town so that we can throw the soiled cloth diapers, cloth wipes, etc.
I'm excited! I love this fabric and I think it came out super cute!
I even filled the clear vinyl lining with 4 cups of water to see how much moisture would leak out if any... and it only dripped a very tiny bit through the bottom two corners!... which was surprising given that I had sewn down the sides of the vinyl and I expected the needle holes to leak a lot more... especially since I had basically filled half the bag with water!!! I am very proud of this wetbag and very pleased with how functional it is!
The closure I used is Touchtape which is a stronger version of regular Velcro which I also use on the cloth diapers I have made for the baby.
