We have been cloth diapering our son since he was born a little over a year ago. We love it. I've been looked at as though I have about four heads when I tell people that I cloth diaper, but really, it's much more practical and easier than most people think. Essential to cloth diapering is having a wet bag or diaper pail to put soiled diapers in until you wash them at the end of a day. We've used a pail from the beginning, and it works well, but I wanted to try a wet bag because at the end of the day I can throw it into the wash along with the diapers instead of having to wash out the diaper pail separately. I initially had my eye on a Planet Wise hanging wet bag, but they run about $30, so I decided to make my own. Mine is roughly the same size and it only cost about $8 to make. I was able to get the PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) for the inside lining, cotton print for the outside of the bag, and zipper for the top all at Joanne's. I used ribbon that I had on hand to make the straps. I have to say, it took me a little longer than expected, and I learned a few new things, but even if it was a little frustrating at times, I'm glad I did it.
I do have enough material to make a second one using leftover PUL and material I have leftover from another project. In the future, I hope to write up a tutorial when I do that, but right now I don't have the patience. I can, however, provide you with two tutorials that I loosely used when I decided how to make my own.Make Baby Stuff.com
