1  Not a purse, not a diaper bag. My in between bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tinkerpuppet on: July 30, 2009 12:46:13 PM
I have a 4yo and a 1yo, both who require 'stuff' when we go out. Not as much stuff as when my youngest was a newborn, so I don't need a big diaper bag anymore. But more stuff then will fit in my little day to day purse. So what's a mom to do?

Make an inbetween bag! I used this awesome tutorial, and I love love love my new bag. It fits all the things I need to carry (diaper change kit, drinks, snacks, my stuff, some toys, plus the little bit of stuff I carry. I added four inner pockets (one is for my cell phone) and a key ring so my key's don't just fall to the bottom. It's a magnetic snap so it's easy for me to just reach in and grab something. The strap fits comfortably over my shoulder so that I can have my hands free.

I used some lightweight fusible interfacing to give it a little structure/body without making it stiff. The strap I basically just made a wide binding strip instead of turning a tube (so much easier). I used about 3/4m for the outer, so with the leftovers I'm thinking of making a matching zipper pouch and tissue holder, etc.

Love my new bag!

I just made some pants for ds from an old pair of pajama bottoms from my hubby. I followed the tut here http://www.rookiemoms.com/make-some-easy-kids-pants/. They were so quick and easy and he wore them all day today, they fit perfect!

4  Play pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by tinkerpuppet on: May 10, 2007 07:46:05 PM
I made a pair of play pants for ds after not being able to find anything plain enough or cheap enough for the wear and tear my boy puts on his play clothes. I used this tutorial ( http://www.rookiemoms.com/make-some-easy-kids-pants/ ) which I think I got from a post here, and a pair of his pajama bottoms for a template. I cut up an old pair of pajama bottoms that my hubby passed to me, that I passed to my 'recycle drawer'. Also, they took next to no time at all to make. They're lightweight and should be great for playing outside! And they fit nicely over his cloth diaper butt. They're slightly big, but hopefully will last him a little longer. The only thing else is I want to reinforce the knees, I think I'll just sew on some patches from an old sweatshirt or something. I can't wait to make him more!
