Hide your wet bits!

I made this wet bag ages ago and I use it on a daily basis. We use wet cloths rather than disposable wipes for Kian so this little bag hangs in his room for storing the dirty wipes. When it's time to wash the stash I dump them AND the wet bag into the washing machine. I accidentally threw the bag into the dryer a couple weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised to find that PUL survives the heat blast just fine!

I'll be making a couple more wet bags soon: one to keep in the diaper bag and one for our swim gear. A super easy and ultra useful little project. Hop on over to A Lemon Squeezy Home for a great tutorial that's easy to follow. Oh and a little hint: use a Teflon foot on your sewing machine to avoid sticking to the PUL.

Needs a place to keep them organized:

This project was one of those extremely frustrating but gratifying tasks. I was ready to throw the entire thing out on at least 63 occasions but the finished product was well worth the annoyances. Would I make another one exactly like this one? Not in a million years.
