Need a quick, classy DIY project to give at your next baby shower?
I’m bringing home this tutorial I shared for Amy’s maternity leave last month. If you don’t know Amy already, you must! Her blog is a feast for the creative mind and full of beautiful pictures!
Hi! I’m Delia from Delia Creates and I’m excited to be guest posting here for Amy while she’s snuggling her new adorable babe.
I wanted to make something in honor of her new baby, so I’ve created a tutorial for a simple leather diaper clutch.
It’s just two lines of sewing and a heavy duty snap! Very easy and super quick.
Let’s jump right into the tutorial, shall we?
MATERIALSleather or vinyl (a piece at least 7 x 26″) heavy duty snap snap tool, leather punch, hammer (for installing snap) leather sewing needle clover clips or binder clips all-purpose thread scissors (and rotary cutter if you have one) ruler (a cutting mat and quilter’s ruler is helpful)
– Cut a piece of leather 7 x 26″.
– Five inches down from one short end, cut 1/2″ notches out of the sides. – Round out this notch end, using a cereal bowl as a guide. I used my small rotary cutter and then smooth everything with scissors. You can also, simply trace and cut with scissors.
Simple to make, practical, and it makes diapering look like a much classier task than it really is! ;)
Thanks for having me Amy! Congrats to you and your beautiful family. I am so so happy for you. Give that baby lots of kisses for me!
