pippet diaper clutch-bag
Tired of heaving an enormous diaper bag around in order to accomplish a few errands with baby?
Ta da! the solution is this little darling. It brings down the size and botheration allowing for easy transport of the essentials.
Pippet is designed like a miniature saddle bag: two pockets folded back to back.
The fresh diaper pocket is roomy enough for 2-3 cloth diapers (depending on bulk) or 8 disposables. The opposing zippered pocket for soiled diapers is lined with PUL and can hold the same. If diaper bag is being made to transport disposables, a cotton lining can be substituted and the zippered pocket repurposed for other necessities. Both pockets have button down top flaps keeping things compact.
Velcro fastens the of bottom of these pockets together. Unfastening and flipping either pocket up reveals two inner pockets that can be used for wipes and a small changing mat [not included].
A sturdy, narrow strap runs across the top and can be unsnapped for easy hanging over strollers, shopping carts, car head rests etc.
FINISHED BAG DIMENSIONS: 9.5″ tall x 7.25″ wide x 5″ deep [each pocket is 2.5″ deep].
Pattern details suggested fabrics, yardage and notions, has comprehensive instructions with professional quality graphics and pattern pieces.
So, abandon the half tonne diaper bag for an afternoon – whip up a Pippet so you can grab the lightweight basics and go!
