Create your own useful and unique diaper clutch with this easy-to-follow and step-by-step “TOKYO Diaper Clutch” sewing pattern. The “TOKYO Diaper Clutch” stores all necessary baby items and is (when unfolded) even long enough to use it as a changing mat for your little one. It can be a beautiful gift for a baby shower or a “newborn mom”, too.
The inside of the bag comes with:
– three compartments for keeping diapers, burp cloth, changing essentials etc.
– a compartment with an opening to take out baby wipes easily
– a zipper pocket to store smaller items like crèmes, lotions, clipper etc.
– a holder for a pacifier
You can make the clutch with the mentioned compartments and features or adjust the pattern to your needs. You can also personalize your bag with appliqués or embroideries to make it very unique. The tutorial describes different options for the bag closure.
The bag measures 27″ by 11″ when it’s opened and 9″ by 11″ when it’s folded.
The level of this pattern is “confident beginner” to “intermediate” – depending on your experiences with zippers, closures and curved stitches. Nevertheless, this pattern provides you with detailed instructions and images for each bag-making step.
