Welcome to Week 29 of the One Yard Wonders Sew Along!

Week 29 – Project 64
Petite Diaper Tote
– designed by Jana Nielson – page 178

Tracy chose Valori Wells Wrenly Ingrid Gypsy and Valori Wells Wrenly Wildfield Gypsy.

Materials Needed:

1 yard of fabric (Home Decor weight will wear better)

1 yard of fusible interfacing

1 yard of fusible fleece

1 magnetic snap

7 ” piece of Velcro

sewing machine walking foot

Tracy’s Tips and Thoughts

  • The Petite Diaper Tote is a useful, fun project that will make a nice baby shower gift.
  • The instructions are clear and well written. A very cleverly designed pattern.
  • The size seems just right for a few diapers, some wipes, and other necessities when a big diaper bag isn’t needed.
  • Tracy used quilting weight cottons instead of a home decor weight as recommended. She interfaced both the lining and the exterior of the bag.
  • The pattern calls for 2 layers of fusible fleece on the changing pad. Tracy used one layer of fleece and a top layer of vinyl for easy cleaning.
  • Next time Tracy may sew with one layer of fleece and a laminated cotton for a wipeable top of the pad.

Week 28 – Project 65
Latte Changing Pad
– designed by Anne Lindholt Ottosen – page 182

Carrie selected Ann Kelle Urban Zoologie Birds Bermuda and Michael Miller Fabrics Mini Mikes Dot N’ Square Tangerine.

Materials Needed:

1/3 yard of fleece

1″ piece of Velcro

1 yard of coordinating ribbon, up to 1/2″

Carrie’s Tips and Thoughts

  • A simple and quick project.  Beginning to end in just over an hour.
  • The pattern calls for a Velcro closure. Carrie used a snap to close the Sleeve.  Add interfacing to the flap for support if you plan to use a snap. (Carrie didn’t think of the snap until she had the bag sewn up…next time!)
  • A decorative stitch or piecing the top would be a fun way to embellish the changing pad.
  • Carrie likes Tracy’s idea of using a laminated fabric for easy cleaning.
  • The perfect gift for a new Mom.
