Wipe those feet…

So okay, my husband and I bought our first home a couple of years ago.  We LOVE it!  When we moved in, there was a lot of work that had to be done, one of which – was the ripping out of old, and putting in brand new carpet.  The carpet was sooo expensive and took a big chunk of our money, and as such, we were so very paranoid about it getting dirty.  My husband got this grand idea, that everyone in the house would have to wipe their feet before going on the carpeted area.  Our downstairs is flooring, and so when you walk around on the flooring your feet tend to get dusty and dirty.  So, we got a refillable baby wipe container, and have been wiping our feet before going upstairs.  It’s crazy to some, but we’re like that I guess, lol.

At first, we just had this little bucket thing to put all the “dirty” wipes in.  After a while, I wasn’t feeling how it looked, so I decided I’d sew something.

I ended up making a type of bag – similar to one you might put in your car for rubbish.  And we just hung it from the handrail.  I have to admit, I like it!

It’s lined on the inside with plastic vinyl – for easy cleaning (but I’ve just thrown it in the washing machine), and the bottom of the bag has a velcro closure flap.  So the bag can be carried nicely to the trash, and the velcro bottome opened up – all the dirty wipes fall right out into the rubbish.  It has a simple opening to insert the wipes, and a tie.

It looks much better to me than the bucket thing we had initially!
