This past week I had a large project for a customer & to ensure I got in done in time, I scheduled a babysitter for two afternoons.
To my surprise I finished the project in one afternoon! (It’s amazing how productive I can be when I’m not working in the evenings exhausted from a full day of chasing after Teapot!) So instead of cancelling the sitter the next day, I decided to use that time for myself (& make things for Teapot, but whatever, I was still making & I wasn’t working!)
First up were 3 wet bags:
I had bought a package of 3 large PUL squares from the big box store back when I had the great idea to make diapers. Since I quickly realized that was not for me, this package had been sitting around unused. I opted to make some wet bags for our swim suits, cloth diapers when we’re out & about, who know what I’ll use the third for, but it’s nice to have available.
I used the 10 minute pencil case tutorial, but increased the size to 15″x24″. While the first didn’t take 10 minutes, the third definitely did & I highly recommend this tutorial. I chose this one because it had french seams which I like for wet bags.
On two of the bags I used some black grosgrain ribbon, so we’ll see how I like using it.
Then I made a second wet bag for Teapot’s diapers:
So we do cloth diaper part time (Kawaii diapers
with liners & disposables at night) & I made this pattern
before & loved it, we just needed a second to have available when the first is drying.
I used some of the fun Sake fabric I won when I participated in a contest sponsored by Kona Bay Fabrics. Three cheers for using stash!
I also finished binding a quilt, but I can’t show that quite yet. Well, ok. Here’s the back:
I used a new pantograph Moxie by Leisha Farnsworth- I love her style & can’t wait to get more of her designs!
It was a wonderful afternoon- Teapot had a great time with the babysitter & I actually made stuff! Luckily for all of us, our new favorite teenage babysitter is available for the rest of summer!
