So I had a lot of fun making a set for myself after my little man was born!! No, it's not real boyish...but he doesn't have to wear it either! I decided to do more neutral colors, but with a femine touch for me. I have the diaper bag, a Sort-n-Stash Pocket set, a burp cloth, and a nursing cover all coordinating. Ok... you might think it's too much...but I think it's fun! :)
-Lots of pockets!
-Big enough for stuff for two kiddos
-Not too cheesy (I don't like the 'diaper bag' style like the ones you can get from the hospital)
-and most importantly... CHEAP!!
yup. i'm picky.
One day I was browsing online and different bags (most of them QUITE expensive I might add) and feeling rather discouraged. OK, maybe I'm making a bigger deal of this than it should be...or than it really was. Anyways, I decided bag it (no pun intended!), I can just do it myself, the way I want it! And so... I did.
Then I sketched out a pattern and grabbed some fabric from my stash.
(Yes... I had everything I needed on hand already! Did I mention I was going the cheap route!?)
The bag is reversible, so the pockets work both ways. Right now I like the yellow side the best. The big flower accent was a lot of fun to design... I may use the idea in some future products. I also like ruffles...so I did a few ruffles and such on the other side over the 3 pockets. Next to the flower is another pocket with stitching designs and beaded embellishments. The beads are already coming off tho :(
Thanks for stopping by! May God bless your day!
