"Nappy Tote"

In Australia, a nappy is a baby diaper. Such a sweet word. ( Still a stinky thing, but a sweet word nonetheless.)

And while I'm sure that this would hold nappies wonderfully, that's not why I chose the word. In this sense, "nappy" refers to the quirky fact that the tote is fashioned out of two discard pillow slips.

The boldly floral pillowcase forms the body, and a second floral orange case creates a pocket on one side. (thank you, Valerie C. for pocket piece!)

I saw this idea on a website a long time ago and have finally gotten around to trying it. If you want to try it yourself, check out the Martha Stewart website.

Or just chuck your stuff into this one, all hobo style, and call it a day.
This tote is available for sale all week.
Or more specifically, until Thursday, April 29, 2010, at 9:30 pm cst.
