A Diaper Clutch with a Clear Zip Pocket

I am trying to make as much as I can to save some money on baby items. Yesterday I saw this diaper clutch on Pinterest and I thought how awesome is that, have to have one, but since the point is to save money I knew I didn't want to spend $10 on a pattern.

So I sat down and drew out some plans and made my own diaper clutch which I think is pretty close to the one I saw on Pinterest. Trying to work with what I had, the zipper is shorter than the one pictured but all I had on hand was a 7" zip. Still works...

I also used the snaps again, instead of a magnetic snap, because I already had them.

The fabric, which I had gotten on sale (the yellow, red, and blue) only cost me about $15 for 4 yards. And with it I have made the diaper bag, the bottle leash and pacifier pouch, plus this diaper clutch. I'm almost out of red and yellow but I still have a bit of blue left and thinking maybe I'll make a couple bibs or burp cloths with it.

Not a bad price for all the things I've made, everything else I used I already had on hand (stabilizer, zippers, snaps, plastic, thread).

Well done! Way to use what you have on hand and great bargain shopping for the fabric.

This is so precious and you did a fantastic job on it! You really got a lot out of the 4 yards of fabrics! Thanks for sharing.
