It’s really nice when the baby outgrows the diaper bag. I won’t lie, I hate carrying that big thing around. It’s obviously essential when the baby is small and you need everything except the kitchen sink to run to the grocery store. However, once I switched over to a smaller bag, I noticed another problem: mashed diapers. I don’t know why this bugs me so much, but when I put a flat, crisp diaper in my bag, and pull out a mashed, matted diaper only hours later (that can NOT be re-flattened) I get super annoyed. This happened, of course, with my first which is why I made myself a crochet diaper pouch to carry my crisp, fresh-from-the-package diapers in my not-diaper bag.
Unfortunately, the first one never made it on the blog. I am not quite sure why not, but I was looking through a folder on my computer labeled “Working on Patterns” and found it! I had lost my original diaper pouch, so I was happy to find the pattern and make another one.
