Baby Food Jar Travel Holder

Yesterday morning while packing the diaper bag for church I decided I was tired of having to use a Ziploc bag to put the baby food and spoon in. I had one of those plastic cases from when my twins were babies that was suppose to hold two jars and a spoon, but I guess jars are bigger now because they don't fit and it is so big in the diaper bag. I decided to head to the workroom and try and figure out how I could make something to hold the jars and spoons.

This is what I came up with. The outside is designer cotton, the middle layer is 2 layers of cushioning batting and the inside is designer laminate cotton. The laminate cotton makes it easy to wipe clean. There is a Velcro closure. This will hold two stage 2 or 1 jars of baby food. I need to try it with the plastic containers and the stage 3. The stage 3 jars may fit if they lay down. I need to pick up a stage 3 and see. This is still in the testing phase, but so far I am loving this bag. It fits so nicely in the diaper bag. It doesn't take up much room and the batting or cushion really helps protest the jars. I can not promise that if dropped it won't break, but it will keep them safe in the bag under normal conditions. This bag is not a cooler. It is just a way to carry the jars while on an outing. The spoon I used to test it was a Take N Toss, because that is what I use while out.

Hopefully in a couple weeks I will have some more made and in my Etsy and ArtFire shops. I am also going to try and have a few made to have on hand at the Designers Downtown Market that I will have a booth at on May 8th in Raleigh, NC.

Nice fit with the Diapers and Wipers Holder and a nursing cover rolled up in there.
