As I get farther along in my pregnancy I’m really feeling the urgency to make things. For starters, I need a travel wet bag for when we cloth diaper outside of the home. A wet bag is a convenient on-the-go-solution for storing soiled diapers and wet/dirty clothes because it’s lined with PUL (a baby safe vinyl) on the inside which keeps in moisture and stink, and also makes it safe to put right into your diaper bag.
So I dug into my secret stash of Kokka fabrics that I had purchased a year ago (I’d been saving this special stash for our next baby, or babies!), and chose prints for a couple wet bags. I’m not the biggest fan of “baby prints” — I’m actually not a fan at all, but Kokka makes the most beautiful vintage prints that come off looking nostalgic of days gone by. Like this one, titled Far, Far Away Snow White Meadow, or even this titled, Sunday Dress — so darn cute, I just love it! The Japanese sure do have a handle on textiles and style.
Kokka fabrics are almost always a cotton/linen blend which give the fabric a more mature, modern and stylish look. The linen fabrics I ended up choosing caught my eye with their vintage appeal — they reminded me of vintage flour sacks for some reason. I ended up making two wet bags — the first being 12″x18″, and the second being 14″x18″. Each bag can hold around 8-10 diapers. I just might have to whip up a batch of these in block printed Indian fabrics for the Susie Mey shop!
