Inspired by the upcoming arrival of the Shultz and Gale babies, I wanted to give these families a user friendly diapering "system" that both Mums and Dads would appreciate. I think this handy dandy diaper purse is just the thing.
I know, when changing a little wee bum, it is important to be quick and fuss free. You need everything at your fingertips, so the procedure can go as smooth as possible. Let's be honest, for some reason children fight getting a clean bum. After flipping a coin to see who's turn it is, ;) grab this bag and go...all you need is right there.
Flip open the bag and you'll find it comfortably holds a refillable Huggies wipes case, 3-4 small or 2-3 large diapers, a coordinating waterproof change mat and tube of diaper cream. Use the pop-up wipes case without having to unpack. The wide pockets allow you to remove supplies or restock quickly and easily. The waterproof mat provides a dry, hygenic, clean change space, no matter where you are...back of the car, friend's new white suede couch, on the grass at the park, atop the quesionably clean changetable you'll find in most public washrooms.
This convenient bag can be carried both in your diaper bag as an organiser, or independently. Carry it over your shoulder, leaving your hands free to wrestle the little one on the way to the women's washroom. Hook it on your stroller or shopping cart. Stylish enough to tuck your wallet inside and head out to dinner...all prepared. As your children reach 2 or 3 years old and require less paraphenalia to be dragged about, this bag could serve as the only diaper bag you'll need.
I think this bag has it all. I did however note some improvements/additions that could be made whilst making this prototype. How about a little carabiner on the outside, below the handle, to attach keys/toys. How about an interior pocket in which you could slip a small wallet or cell phone. I'm so pleased with this concept...the end result lived up to my mental image. I'm about to start my second attempt. I will post a blow by blow tutorial and pattern for those interested soon.
