I'm a big fan of specialty fabrics. They add a bit of extra style, texture & fun to projects. Today I'm going to share my love of Softie fabric and why I think it's a great addition to any fabric stash.
Our smaller (and cuter) diaper bag isn't meant to supplant the full-size, workhorse of a diaper bag; you know the one I mean... the one that holds enough stuff to open your own nursery school. Nope. This one is perfect to grab and go for short jaunts out and about. It's still big enough, with pockets inside and outside, to hold the essentials: several diapers, wipes, a couple bottles, a special blankie or toy, even your own wallet and keys. The outside fabric is our fave from Pillow & Maxfield for Michael Miller Fabrics; the inside is the popular PUL waterproof fabric. PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) fabric can be a little finicky to work with, but is a great option when you want a thin, lightweight waterproof layer.
7-22-11 Update: I am so happy to share this tutorial and pattern with all of you; it has in fact been the post that brings the most people to this blog. As a reminder, this pattern and tutorial represent a lot of time and effort, and I have made the decision to share it with you for free- because I want to- as long as people are using it correctly. So please respect that and give proper attribution if you share it on the web (no unauthorized redistribution, and no copying and pasting the tutorial, pattern and/ or photos please- 1 or 2 photos is fine however). I would like to request that you use it for personal use only (exceptions will be made in certain cases i.e. charity- please just ask first- it's the polite thing to do!). I know most of you are honest and would never take advantage- thank you so much!
Remember the Vinyl Bib Tutorial ? One of my readers from Taylor Moments sent me pictures of the bibs she made from my tutorial.
Today I am sharing my all time favorite baby item.
I am trying to finish up the crafts I have had in the makings and this is one of the 1st to be checked off my list.
