Diaper Clutch and a Giveaway!

I have seen several diaper clutches and love the idea.  Now that Liam is a little older, I don't really need to carry around a diaper bag.  I'd love to carry around one of my beautiful purses again.  While googling one day, I came across this beautiful Poopy Clutch.  I can't take credit for the idea or tutorial, though.  I found it here, I Still Love You.  I did make a few adjustments however.  I found a nice piece of grey vinyl, that looks like leather, in the remnant bin and then wanted to add a pop of color with a pretty liner fabric.  I couldn't find the button stud that was used for the closure but I found something else in the purse aisle at Jo Ann Fabrics. 

Here's how I made my diaper clutch.  I used Wonder Under (follow the directions exactly and your vinyl shouldn't melt) to fuse the liner fabric and the vinyl together.  Then I outlined the template found at ISLY and cut it out.  Here is how it looked after it was cut:

And here is a close up of the clasp that I used.  It's a silver toggle clasp.

I used the stencil to mark the place for the clasp on the top of the clutch and then I traced the toggle and cut out the hole for the hardware.

Then I used the stencil to mark the location of the toggle and that was also used to close the 2 sides and bottom of the clutch.

And here is the finished product.  I think it turned out great and I can't wait to go to our play group on Tuesday so I can throw it in my bag.

I have 3 diapers size 4 diapers tucked in and there is still room for me to add my travel wipe case and a disposable changing pad. 

Since I have enough fabric to make another clutch, I thought I could make one and give it away to a lucky follower.  I will choose a winner, via, on Monday, April 18th.  In order to be considered, you must be a follower and leave me a comment.  You will get an extra entry if you share this on your blog (let me know if you do).  Good Luck!

This is ADORABLE!! Most items for my second baby I have been hand making - breast feeding cover, sling wrap, maternity jeans even! I love this idea. I will be sharing this on my Facebook page if it counts as an extra entry!
