Wet Bags

I take my girls swimming every week. Anna has been having lessons for a couple of years now and Lucy has just started. Lucy wears an aqua nappy and last week we had just got out of the pool and the worst happened. After quick dash to the change rooms I realised that what I needed in that moment was a wet bag to shove the dirty swimmers into so I could deal with it when I get home when I was no longer in public! 

I went straight home and made a couple that evening, in case we have another unfortunate wet and messy incident. And I liked them so much that I decided to make some for my shop.


I use Mexican Oilcloth, for two reasons. Firstly, because I love the bright loud colours and prints, and secondly, it is waterproof so you can stash wet or dirty items in the pouch, and then just give it a rinse afterwards and it's as good as new. Very eco-friendly!


I made these with parents in mind, for wet and soiled modern cloth nappies (diapers), burp cloths and bibs, wet clothes after toddler accidents, and wet swimsuits. They are really handy when you are out and about, and a nice alternative to putting items in a plastic bag.

They have been popular in the first few days I've had them listed so I've just added some more, including my personal favourite - this gorgeous silver cherry one:


You can find them in my shop here. I have already made a custom sized wet bag for one customer so if you are after a particular size let me know!

  2. I need a huge one for Jimmy so I can just put *him* in it and zip it up to his neck! How is sewing with oil cloth? The same as laminate?

  3. I think I agree with that moxie girl, I just need one to put Max in.

    Do you need a non stick foot to sew with oil cloth? The bags are gorgeous and a fantastic idea!
