Pink Polka Dot Drawstring Wet Bag

Phew, what a name! It's a mouthful. I've been wanting to make a wet bag for a while. Why? Because every time I have to change my daughter's cloth diaper & we're not home...the dirty diaper goes into my purse. My PURSE. Gross. That's where my wallet and cell phone and important papers go. I'm grossing myself out.

So I finally did something about it.


I used a tutorial I found on Pinterest here. Instead of lining the bag with muslin or lightweight fabric, I used PUL. You can find that at JoAnn's. It's waterproof, so anything leaking from your bag will stay in the bag. Just remember to wipe it out/wash the bag. Frequently.

I used Bliss by Moda fabric for the main body and some light pink satin for the edging. I really like how sweet looking it looks.
Here's a shot of the blue PUL that I used. There's a lot of cute PUL out there, but I already had this from making a cloth diaper for Luke (hence the blue).
I added a pocket. The original pattern didn't have one, but I thought it would be handy to have. It's big enough to fit at least 2 onesies if not 3. I'm glad I thought to add one.
Ta-da!
