Snappy for nappies

Our youngest is still in nappies but she's not at the point where we need to lug an entire nappy bag around, just the basics for an on the run change if needed.

So I thought I' make a nappy wallet that holds what I need and fits in my handbag, and leave the big bag at home.


After hunting around a bit on the web for tutorials I couldn't find anything that was what I wanted so I ended up just winging it and making up my own, which if you read my post about being a 'maker' or a 'creator' you'd know was a big deal for me!

It has two pockets, one fits a travel pack of wipes, the other side holds a nappy, disposal bags and a small pack of antibacterial wipes, in case you're not near a tap and want to clean yourself up after completing the job!


Everything tucks away and then you fold it over and snap it closed.

Compact and easy.

They've been a bit of a hit with friends, so I have made five of them so far, with another one planned in the next day or so.

Would it be handy for you? Are you interested in a tutorial to make these?

Let me know - I can photograph it next time if you say the word.

Ooo, tutorial please, these would be great for my sister who's due again next week.:-) I think by the second kid you really do want to be compact where you can!!

Becky said...

I would be very interested, my oldest is at this stage and it would be great to have a small set under the pram for afternoon walks with Dad.

cherri said...

awesome idea - i usually throw one nappy and a thinning pack of wipes in my handbag - this is a nicer way though!

Belinda said...

They look great Karen! I wouldn't need a tutorial, but I will have to make one to take overseas I think. I do not want to be lugging a nappy bag when out during the day.

Kelly said...

This looks lovely and very handy. I'd be really interested in a tutorial!

sunshinedays said...

mrsbutters said...

This is brilliant, I would love a tutorial! I have been trying to think what to make to make the whole nappies in the handbag not so intrusive and this is just perfect. I'm thinking of making a little zipper snack pouch as well for the handbag for those all important snacks!

thornberry said...

I think that a tutorial would be terrific Karen! They look brilliant. And then I could make and not have to create ;-)

Nikki Cardigan said...

I knew there was a creator inside there somewhere Karen! What a FABULOUS idea. Well done to you.

Bec said...

They look great and super handy.

AJ said...

Looks great! I'll be checking back to see if you've done a tut!

Kylie said...

Tutorial?? Oh yes please! How cool are these!! Very clever of you.

pilgrim said...

hi karen! what a great idea. we never bothered with the big nappy bag, i used a little japanese bento/ lunch bag (like a zippered pouch) but this little pouch would have been even better! handbag space already being at a premium i think a tutorial like this would be very popular.

elizabeth said...

YES! Tutorial please!!! pleeeease!

LOL the captcha on the page is "wishably" I think that's my new favourite word: wishably. As in: She asked for a tutorial wishably.

LMSO!!

littlebetty said...

Yes please a tutorial would be fab!!!

Jennifer said...

Yes please - would love a tutorial. I have been wanting to make one of these, but my pregnancy brain cant get around it at the moment.

Kirsty said...

Two thumbs up for you Karen!

"I just think of what I need & then use what I have on hand to make it"

You did it!

Sally said...

YES PLEASE!!!
I was recently searching the net for a tute to make exactly this... a nappy wallet.
Will hold off experimenting now in the hopes that you tell me how....

dearmolly said...

now that my youngest is 2 and we can usually anticipate nappytime, a lovely nappy pouch like this would be wonderful - and a tutorial, oh yes please!!

clever girl Karen!

sarah said...

Hi - I'm new to your blog but have been enjoying it very much! A tutorial for the nappy/diaper holder would be fantastic. My sis-in-law is expecting their first and I've been trying to decide what to make - this would be perfect!
thanks so much!

What a great idea and yes a tutorial would be great. I am trying to get back into sewing a bit more.
