I just want to share my new found appreciation for our laminate fabric.
I recently made myself a diaper bag (keep your eyes peeled for the pattern in Connecting Threads October catalog). It was just a mock up and I added a removable "soiled goods" bag made from our lovely laminate. For swim lessons, on a Saturday morning, I just grab the laminate bag filled with my son's swim things – swim diapers, wipes regular diapers, and a cloth that could be used for anything from a change mat to a towel or emergency change of clothes – throw that in my swim bag and head to the pool.
Last Saturday, as I was struggling to dress the boy and myself after the lesson. I suddenly found that his "swim bag" was no longer on the bench, but had fallen – splat- in the middle of a giant puddle.
No problem - everything inside was dry and good to go. I scooped up his bag and continued the battle to dress the 20 month old boy who has far too much energy.
The moral of this story is simple: Connecting Threads lovely laminates saved his clean diapers and we were ready to face the day with fresh pants!
